TSN Pay-Per-View

TSN just released a story on their website (http://www.tsn.ca/world_jrs/story/?id=411879) claiming that they will be offering pay-per-view for their online streams. Seriously?

They proabably have to make up for this years ad revenue shortfall somehow.

I expected them to do what they've always done, which is to not charge for them. But having said that, there are some things at this year's tournament that do make things more expensive such as the previously stated ad-revenue shortfall and the extra travel costs. Hopefully it will just be the live games and not the on demand ones, but I guess we'll see.

It's great news that TSN will be running the broadcast rather than watching that grainy garbage that international hockey is usually broadcast in.

Ya I'm sure it will be much different from all other international events TSN has shown recently.

If your TV is grainy, get HD. If it's the less lit arenas you're talking about, expect more of the same.

TSN seems to have blocked and deleted comments for the article linked above, even though they were still allowed an hour or so ago

I wouldn't mind paying for a stream if it's high quality. As in, dramatically better than the quality they've used previously.

Still, it does chap a little bit to have to pay for something that's been offered for free until now.

Does anywhere give an indication of what they will cost? This is my only way to watch these games, and if it's more than a couple dollars per game, MAX, I will not be watching which is pretty depressing.

Hopefully they have a fee for the whole tournament not game by game.

They've probably realised that most people who are interested in it this year will be PVR'ing it and watch it later or when it's on in prime time.

Full tournament package (20 games) - $19.99

Found some pricing

$3.99 eh, great prices. Fasthockey takes €8 for their crap quality, albeit for games nowhere else to be seen.

If you're lucky, you might get a PPV online stream in Sweden for under $15. The U20 4-nations recently cost $15/game. A SEL game costs $25.

Quick question...I want to watch Canada's pre tourney game tomorrow and Saturday, but I have to watch it in the archives. Anyone know if TSN will block out any spoilers a few hours after the game so we can watch it? Reason being it will be hard to navigate to the on demand section of TSN.ca without seeing the result of the game. And the NHL Network here in the states isn't showing Canada's pre tournament games live like the rest of the tournament. Just the USA's pre tournament games (which is fine, I just want to see Canada's also). So any info would be great

How much does a SEL game ticket cost on average?

Lemme check.

Okay, I don't mind being up really early,they are broadcasting most of the games on regular TSN and I have a PVR.

No reason for me to spend any extra money.

For those looking for a (paid) alternative, check out hockeystreams.com

You can get daily, weekly or montly subscriptions. They'll be showing the WJC, and they also show other leagues (NHL, AHL, QMJHL, KHL, OHL, WHL and UFC).

I'm not a member now, but I was during last season and I had no problems. I know some users had buffering problems a few years ago, not sure if they fixed it but it seemed so last year!
