Also, FiOS may cost more money, but I made the jump from DirecTV and it was well worth it.
I'm not sure about the suburbs, but in NYC, you have no option for what cable provider you want. If you are in a Cablevision zone, you have to get Cablevision if you want cable. If you live anywhere else, you have to get Time Warner Cable. Comcast isn't available in NYC.
I guess MLSE would be considered the Leafs owners'...or would it be Bell and Rogers?
-Air Canada Centre
-Maple Leafs Square (which includes Real Sports Apparel, Real Sports Bar, and e11even (upscale restaurant))
-NBA TV Canada
They also operate BMO Field and Ricoh Coliseum
Edit: If we're talking Bell and Rogers, combined they basically own everything in Canada, lol.
