National TV Schedule

The national schedule has been released.

We are on CBC 21 times, and TSN 5 times.

Same. 21 reg season games last year on CBC. And one pre-season match, the hockeyville game in NFLD. Had 6 TSN games last year - including 1 pre-season game.

National TSN coverage of Jets games is a joke. Even double the games isn't enough. I guess they don't want to infringe on their TSN Jets coverage/revenue stream. Keep the locals paying for TSN Jets and not getting games for free on TSN.

Are all the "TSN's coverage is a joke" comments coming from folks outside of the TSN Jets region? They dedicated a whole channel to it FYI.

I would much rather see TSN jets offered to all regions of Canada, as an additional option.

In your region, buy your local teams package but then buy whoever you want. For instance, if I lived in Calgary and wanted jets games, I should be able to commit to whatever I needed to for flames regional coverage, and then buy TSN Jets. A portion could go to flames, for allowing 'competition in their market', but majority would flow back to Jets. Additional revenue streams for both flames and jets, and all you're doing is giving fans more viewing options. Which they are willing to pay for.

I know the system prevents that, but I do not see why teams can not benefit buy offering their broadcast options to as many fans as they can. Some teams would make even more $$, but local teams would as well, if there was a stipulation you had to buy the local package to 'get in the game'.

Nope. I've bought TSN Jets. My beef is for Jets fans outside the jets region who would like to see Jets games on TV but can't. If they buy NHL network, they could see games a day or so later, great! I'd like someone who is Cornerbrook, Nfld be able to buy jets broadcasts if he's a fan of the jets. And because he can't, with only 5 games on TSN national, he's not able to watch his beloved Jets very often.

Except on CBC. .

Ah, but viewers in Newfoundland will get the Toronto or Montreal game on HNIC, not the Jets. How many of those CBC Jets games are national? Any?

Bell will also be getting CBWT-HD on channel 1090 apparently very soon. But even in the meantime, for those in the Winnipeg area, you can get a VHF/UHF antennae for like $15 and watch in CBC-HD over the air. The picture quality is actually optimal this way rather than through any provider.

As an aside for Bell customers, suggestion has been that Bell will be charging for TSN-Jets this season as it's no longer included in the digital standard package.

Just buy CentreIce (if it's available in the region) - that's what I did here in Ontario, and I watched all Jets games last year. The two downsides to this are price, and who the broadcast originates with. More often than not, the broadcast being shown is TSNJets (which is great), but occasionally it's the opposing team's broadcast crew.

Pretty sure I'm the only "folk outside of TSN Jets region" that commented...
I didn't say it was a joke; I gave a reason for the difference... Also, I am well aware of the dedicated channel.

Thats great if you live in the city. I do not have the option. Still stuck with Shaw Sattelite which shows regional channels in SD. Although I heard that MTS TV might be coming our way shortly.

Right, another option is Center Ice, but I'm thinking most would pay the extra $10-$15/month for 8 months TSN Jets and not the hundred's for CI. Just seems like a lost opportunity to me.

I for one would do that in a heartbeat - I probably watched a handful of games that didn't involve the Jets (mainly from the SE division as the playoff race ratcheted up), so having access to TSNJets outside of Manitoba would be a great option.

Of course, knowing Rogers I'd have to keep the other parts of the sports package to get this (which includes Leafs TV - don't burn me at the stake, please! ).

One benefit out here with Centre Ice is that Rogers does package the OHL Network with it, so I got to watch all the Barrie games. This year will be even better, with more Jets prospects spread through the OHL.

TSN Jets will be $60 this year correct? (Oct-Mar = 6 months @ $10 per month) Or maybe they'll squeeze an extra $10 by including Sept (pre-season games) and April as an additional month making the annual amount $70.

How much is Centre Ice? Isn't it $250 for the year? It's been a while since I've looked into it but it seems like the best way to get to watch all the Jets games that aren't national telecasts. I'm thinking of getting Centre Ice to watch out of town games and the late night west coast games.

Meh - as an out-of-town Jets fan I just get Centre Ice. I'm pondering ordering the online Gamecentre instead though.

Ironically, it's the so-called "National" CBC games that screw me over. Shaw Edmonton doesn't give me an option to watch CBC Winnipeg, and of course invariably the Jets game is only shown in Manitoba, while we get a Toronto or Montreal game (usually with an Oilers/Flames/Canucks as the second game).

It is what it is.

TSN doesn't love our team, but CBC is airing more that a quarter of the games for free.

All in all we get more CBC / TSN games than any of the Western Conference teams.

I don't know how to make tables here, but I threw on up on AIH breaking down the Canadian team's national games.
