It is when we pay 10 bucks a month for it, and everyone that gets sports net has it apart of their cable package.

So if you pay for the Sportsnet package, then you automatically get it? But if you don't have the Sportsnet package, then you have to pay for it seperatly?

for example, my MTS tv you can get it as apart of a package of channels,

but you may also get that one channel specifically for a fee.

Just as a side note, I believe Calgary already has 3 or 4 this year.

Has Winnipeg took back that title? I know Edmonton took it away for a few years (08-10?)...two great cities i have lived in most of my life

It's been going back and forth, but in reality, it has been other cities like Regina, or Abbotsford that were the true Murder capitals from a per capita bases. Edmonton and Winnipeg were up there, but we were dubbed this simply because we are among the largest cities in Canada, so there is more to gain for media attention with bringing us up all the time. Thunder Bay had 7 or 8 homicides last year, so they could very well possibly be the murder capital for 2012.

No, you don't get TSN Jets if you pay for the Sportsnet package. Not sure who would pay for the Sportsnet package anymore, since all the regional Oilers/Flames games are now blacked out (Manitoba was part of the Sportsnet West region before the Jets came back).

TSN Jets is $9.95/month (or free if you're on Bell satellite TV). You only pay during the season though. So probably $70 in a non-lockout year. Less than a single P4 ticket!

Okay, thanks for that. I still think there should be a regional 24/7 sports channel for Winnipeg though.

They do seem big for about a week. But they fit in your pocket and you don't even notice them after a while. Plus that big beautiful screen is amazing of watching HD videos and looking at Instagram etc.

Super fast, functional and tonnes and tonnes of great free apps. Blackberry won't give you that.

Plus, you will be pretty much the only person on BBM

The messenger is the only real advantage BB has over iphones, IMO. Love that feature.

You guys should see some of the videos of the new BB10 models they're set to release on the 30th.

Quite slick.

That's awesome. Man I'd kill for that opportunity...my ex was basically obsessed with LeBron James (I know basketball fan urgh ex for a reason ), it would drive her nuts

I guess 75G isn't bad either...

Anyone else think our goal horn sucks? I get that its nostalgic because of Jets 1.0 but when I hear it I think of a tiny weak train like Thomas the Train lol.

I think I'm going to switch from my iPhone to a android phone when my contract is up.

I actually really like my iPhone but my dislike of the Apple cult leaves me with a bad taste in my mouth.

Also Apple trying to dictate online content formats by limiting what can be used on their devices pisses me off.

Yes, yes. Come and join the turbo-nerd neckbeards and our Android devices. Come the summer, I am going to talk to Rogers and see what the buyout penalties are for my contract with them. I want to switch to MTS for my cable, internet, and cell phone. I can likely bundle the 3 of them together and save more money that way that I can with Westman cable and Rogers. Plus, TSN-Jets.

I just bought a ticket to the Jets/Bruins game on Feb. 17th. It will be my first Jets game. Hell, it will be my first NHL game. I'm excited.
