Sportsnet is the quickest. Last year I got the texts just as the reports were coming in over the TV (I was able to watch the last hour or so).

This year I'll be watching TSN/Internet and texting my friends myself so they have a better chance of getting the info as soon as it happens.
same here. since i'll be in class, ill just "borrow" a laptop for the day. Screw notes, Trade Deadline comes first.

There seems to be a lot of speculating with regards to the Sportsnet text alert service...

Does anyone know FOR SURE if the advertised $.25 per text fee is above and beyond any text message plan I may already have with my service provider? I would like to hear from someone who has already subscribed to the service with Sportsnet and has recieved a bill after getting texts sent to them.

I used Sportsnet last year and it seemed like I was getting info pretty quick. However for some reason this year they are charging for the service. So I have signed up for email alerts on TSN and they will be sent to my Blackberry. But one can never have TOO much coverage of Trade Deadline Day!!
