I just want people to boycott the CBC HNIC next year and the fact it has turned into a drug/alcohol sponsored infomercial.

Exactly!

Ps Isn't TSN also owned by Bell Media? Hell, if your gonna boycott one does it really make sense to have TSN?

But I think your problem is with Videotron not Bell.

Errr...I think you don't reallly understand the issue here. It's VIDEOTRON, not BELL that is forcing you to take both.

And if you REALLY believe that Quebecor is not playing a game here, you don't understand how this war is waged. While PKP is crying a river over the Bell-Astral deal, he's the one trying to have his company be a quasi-monopoly in the Québec market. He is waging major wars against Bell, Astral, Transcontinental, the Remillard Brothers, SRC, Gesca...heck, the rest of the media world in this province. The guy wants to CONTROL. It's like having Hitler complaining about Milosevic's genocide of the Bosniacs.

Anyway, talked to someone who works at the CRTC, and what's going to happen is probably this: Bell will have to sell some of its regional stations to independent owners, and the deal will go through. Television-wise, Bell will prevail. And I'd rather have Bell prevailing than PKP.

I won't go to any restaurants either since somewhere somehow, all fast food chains are sponsoring at least one NHL team.

If I'm with Rogers, should I cancel my phone contract and go with Bell? Oh wait they too are sponsors.

Nah I guess I'm just gonna buy myself a car and.......... dammit, pretty much every single car company is sponsoring one or multiple teams!

Okay fuk it, I'll remain on my couch and play some video games.... but if I recall, Playstation is a sponsor too, so I can't.

Well I'll go buy some beers and...........

So yeah... we're fuked.



You might wanna reconsider the "just don't buy any tickets" option, right?
You're hooked on brands, we get it.

Well the Stanley Cup is a great trophy because of the culmulative past winners. It's a legacy and tradition. I actually think it is and should be greater than the NHL. They have a claim to it but it should represent the best of hockey. If there's a Lockout, I would not have a problem if it would be defended by hockey games that are not NHL games because they would not exist. Just make sure it's highly competitive hockey.

That does suck that it counts as 2

I hate Bell, but I swtiched over from Videotron mainly for the HD programming.. It's like night and day in terms of HD selection and I can custom my channels as many times that I want in a given month (with Videotron, I was locked in for a month).

Oh boy, once again typical Quebecor's crap. It's a POS company...yes even bigger then Bell. They always brain wash people into thinking they are the "Nice" guys that do everything by the book and that everything bad about the telecom industry is because of "Evil" Bell.

It's Videotron that screws you over but PKP likes to make people look like a bunch of idiots by giving us great Bullsh*t Tv channels,newspaper and magazines.

Don't get me wrong,I hate Bell also but it always amazes me how people think that Videotron is the opposite of Bell. Maybe 10 years ago it was but now there's no real advantage staying with them. PKP is ruthless and he's going to find anyway possible to give a cheap shot and manipulate his viewers,subscribers opinion even if it's pure bs.

If I already have a plan that has RDS and not RDS2 is it still going to continue like that or am I going to have to get RDS2 as well?

I want to get rid of Vidéotron too.

The option I'm looking at is Techsavvy.

I just don't know how I'm going to stream habs games on my HD TV. Is there any good quality options? I know I can't access them via NHL Gamecenter on my apple tv because RDS is a b!tch.

What to do? What are the options?

Right now? Illegal streams.

I really wish RDS would bring back their Habs streams like they did for the centennial season. By the end of the season the feed was HD quality however my internet connection kinda sucked and I didn't have an HDTV so I couldn't fully take advantage of it.

Yeah thats what I thought. There's also hockeystreams, but supposedly that its not that good and pretty expensive. Guess I'll have to change teams to watch hockey this year.

Would be interesting to know if tons of people would use Twitter to send NHL and NHLPA some boycott messages, if that would change anything.

Except that the service of Bell has always been atrocious and it has not changed.

Except for the fact that RDS has always been an awful sports channel.

Except for the fact that they started RDS 2 to compete with TVA Sports.

Bell is like the drunk uncle that won't leave the room and embarass everybody. Quebecor is the hot chick who is a big tease but won't give you the time of day.

Same I havn't had cable service for over 5 years now just 150 MBps internet and
a laptop that had a broken screen so I unscrewed the broken screen and attached it to my LCD TV , I've been streaming games this way for a while and it's just fantastic.
Sometimes the quality isn't as good but especially when games are on CBC.ca they
are in crystal clear HD(this service has been much better since they updated their servers in 2012).
Saving 50+ a month and just enjoying using the internet to it's full potential I really don't understand why
we are still stuck paying for Cable/Phone and internet in 2012 when all 3 services can be given by just the internet...In the future
I hope that we will just be able to buy internet everyone get's as fast speed as possible and you buy data as you need 50GB/100GB/200Gb/300Gb ,
I can't see how the average user can go over 100GB by using "Phone" Voip(10GB)/"TV" Streaming service(60GBO)/"PC/Mobile device" Internet usage(30GB).
