I know people say to use the search function but it's terrible on this site. Since this season has begun, every time I've wanted to watch a hockey game on Sportsnet, it's just a frozen shot of the ice or a "coming up" with the teams... I tried Google to see if it's been blacked out or something but I've got nothing... I'm on Shaw Cable.

Does anyone else not get games on Sportsnet? All the recap shows and everything are fine but games are always frozen...

This. We're no longer in the Sportsnet West region.

Ah okay. Yeah I live in the region

Well this sucks... no more casual hockey games that involve teams I feel neutral about.

Ah appreciate it, but I don't have a box on my downstairs TV (can't be bothered to boot my parents out of the upstairs TV).

Eberle just scored from Hall against the Canucks. 1-0 Oilers in 2. I live in Winnipeg and have no problems picking up games on Sportsnet. I am definatly not on NHL Centre Ice. Love my satellite provider.

NHL ci preview ended Sunday. The games work on snet west hd for the same reason bomber games worked on tsn hd but not tsn SD in a blackout. Snet doesn't signal substitute on blackouts like tsn does so the channel just freezes

CBC Winnipeg HD - Whine here and tell tell me when Shaw will carry ?

This subject is sprinkled throughout the Jets HNIC threads.
I have not watched standard definition television for 5 years and cannot believe in 2011 that I am forced to watch it now.

My eyes are burning AGAIN trying to watch the Tampa game.

Does anyone know when Shaw will pick up the feed ???

DirecTV says that the Bolts v Jets game is on 770-1 and 770, but they're showing the Pens v Leafs on that channel.

Called DirecTV and they told me that the Jets are listed as having blacked the game out. I'm not in Tampa or Winnipeg so I'm not sure why they get to black out the game.

I know someone mentioned in the GDT that tonight's game would likely not be available in HD on CBC because of the # of HD trucks etc., but immediately after the game, CBC was showing HD highlights of the game on their Montreal channel. It seems as though if they don't have an HD truck at the Jets games, that they're able to access the other team's HD feed.

Would love to know when Bell plans to add the CBC Winnipeg HD channel.

I talked to Bell tonight and they told me that they're currently negotiating for the channel but they couldn't give any time frame. They couldn't even give me an approximate month.

I'm likely switching to MTS soon and this is one reason why.

Forget HD - despite having Centre Ice, I am forced to huddle around my computer to watch the internet feed since Shaw Edmonton does not carry CBC Winnipeg in any level of quality.

I can't believe it either... it's horrid.

I have this big screen I treated myself to for sports... and then I tune into CBC games and I feel like I'm watching Jets circa 1985. Ridiculous. Echoing the thoughts of others, why am I watching something like this in 2011 and paying over a 100 bucks a month? Ridiculous x2.

I am thinking if it weren't for my PVR I'd just go straight to MTS... If it weren't such a pain in the arse I'd do it.

I have a gamecenter live subscription, and so far every game I've watched have been hd quality. Well thanks to CBC I had to watch their stream and it was absolutely horrible. Pretty much stopped watching the game and just listened to it instead.

I emailed gamecenter help desk 3 times because under their terms of agreement this game should not have been blacked out for me. They basically said it's CBC's decision and to take my complaint to them. I hate you CBC. Thanks for ruining my Saturday night
