RDS2 is not available on Illico yet.

My guess is it will be available in a year just like what they did with TSN2.

Looks pretty bad. A few Sens games, some baseball, a few Impact games and a handful of other games plus boring crap that no one cares about?

I'm assuming RDS2 will only become available on Videotron once Bell offers TVASports to their clients.

In the Anglo world, the 9 we have are barely enough, they carry soccer from Europe also & over 500 baseball games now. Sportsnet(5) East-Ontario-West-Pacific-One, TSN(3)-TSN2-TSN-Habs, The Score(1). If Only the Expos had an owner for a little longer all 162 would be on! Sigh!

And Radio now TSN(3) Montreal-Toronto-Winnipeg.

If RDS2 does what TSN2 did, then it will be good. TSN2 plays games & TSN normal talks.

That's a good point! I forgot about the corporate warfare, it's E-Z to forget when most of the West-Island Anglos moved to Bell last year when Videotron refused to add TSN-Habs.

Even in English Bell, turfed SUN News off the Dish. A Suncorp(orTVA Station) station.

Were happy here, but it's nice to have a choice, that's the whole idea about Canada, right! Freedom & choice. I guess now that the dish is available coast to coast is not an issue, but still some apartment building in the City don't allow dishes, and people are allowed to live where they want and have a choice.

In either language.

Any news if TVA Sports will be available on Bell?

I doubt Bell gives the channel without getting something back.

I will answer my own question.

Per Karine Champagne's twitter, TVA Sports and 3 other Quebecor channels will be on Bell.

LOL, yep that's what I meant, I wasn't sure if it was Yooma or Zooma TBH. Thanks for the correction, but yeh all three will be added I think December 13? Not sure. Anyway, I dont know how good Yoopa is for kids. But SUN TV sucks imo. Its like a Canadian version of FOX NEWS, but very amateur looking imo. Half the time I feel like I'm watching a internet youtube channel.

I wonder that, I dont think so. I think they'll do like TSN where you get TSN 2 if you order TSN.

What made me laugh is Gerry Frappier saying that they were launching RDS 2 because there was too muich content for RDS alone....

Really?

You mean there are other Lumberjack competitions from 2007?


I agree, more choice is great, but more mediocrity means poorer sports coverage.

More simultaneous live coverage. For example, live football on hockey nights.

Got my answer. RDS 2 will have to be added as an extra channel. It doesn't come automatically with RDS.
