Streams are anywhere from acceptable to horrible quality. Games featuring Saint John, Moncton, Cape Breton, PEI, or Halifax would be in english.

Also I'm glad that the cheat is not dead.

The quality is disgusting for the price they charge you

But it's the only way to watch online so

Most of the time you can't even make out players' numbers on their jerseys during gameplay

They should be ashamed

Have to agree with this assessment. the quality is pretty bad for what they charge.

Is the quality the same as when they had it free years ago, but now they make people pay for it?

It's slightly improved but very comparable.

It also depends what rink it's filmed in, for example : Halifax games are probably the best while games in rinks like Rouyn-Noranda tend to be difficult to watch due to lighting and camera work.

I don't know for certain but I highly doubt they are.

Pre season games are not available on the Telus stream. It makes me so mad that with all the technology we have now, that they can't improve the quality of the streams so us fans can enjoy some good hockey. Also I would like to add I sent an e-mail to PQM.net. They are the company that provides the streaming service. I simply asked them if any changes would be made this season to improve the video quality and all they said back was no changes will be made. Sounds like they dont give a crap and just want your money. However, if you download the QMJHL app on your iphone or android, they show free streaming HD games every few weeks or so during the season.

Ya really for what you see in the O and Dub where games are much better quality and offer packages/reasonable pricing, Telus and the Q should be ashamed for the pathetic showing you get for $8
