How do you bookmark and have any Habs games been shown on these links yet this preseason?

Thanks much!

Anyway, RDS never surprises me....it goes with the expectations you have and with RDS, it's pretty low.....Where is RIS NHL on the Fly show they had last year? Even though it was a little frustrating 'cause they were in and out of the game, did they decided not to do it 'cause it was a good idea?
what about the ottawa carrier, what is their excuse?

I mean, okay, maybe rds is contractually obligated to show the baseball game, I dunno

The reason is that La Cage Au Sports has exclusive rights to air the game tonight in their restaurants.

There will be 5 home games like that all year.

Don't understand. There will be 5 home games that will be shown at La Cage and only there?

Add to favorites

Alt+Z in internet explorer.

if there is a telecast of the game somewhere, these links are usually good at getting them up. Problem is most games haven't been televised. The Buffalo game was available through them.

I doubt that's what he meant... all 82 games will be presented on tv... doing otherwise would lead to riots of biblical proportion...

It's done in other NHL markets. Edmonton, for example, plays a few games that are pay per view only. I've never seen one but they're supposed to provide more coverage (pre and post game interviews ???).

I hope that's not true and I imagine having RDS signing contracts to carry all the games would prevent this from happening/having any impact.

I heard on the radio that there are 5 games all year long that are aired on TV at la Cage and nowhere else.

I know tonight is one. Are there really others I don't know, but that's one tonight.

So who's going and where? I'm thinking of driving to Dix 30 and watch it there.

It would be a daring move from La Cage...can you imagine the public hate if there was a game not shown on TV because of them? It would actually be bad for their image.

Besides I also heard and read that RDS will be presenting all Habs regular season games in HD and providing all these games online...

1) Download Sopcast and TVU
2) http://www.myp2p.eu/index.php?part=sports


Everyone else give your links.....
Help us out here.





Please note: links to torrents of software programs or games is still against the rules.
That really sucks, because now that its become open knowledge the streams won't even work anymore.

You see, when lots of people use sop, it barely casts.

Not blaming anyone here, but it's just lame

Back when it was a leet secret, it worked much better

It was already starting to go to **** last season though I guess and I'll be getting illico this season so **** it, enjoy it while you still can, the casts will be **** within 2 weeks of the seasons start tho

Not all the pre-season games are on TV... maybe La Cage has exclusive rights to five of them?

Just heard it on the radio. That's exactly it. Exclusivity to some preseason games.

We can post links, but we can't be seen to be supporting these sites via stickying it.

I recommend you all add the thread to your bookmarks.
Any chance you could add a link to this thread in the Habs Library thread?

I'd say the chances are decent, although I just checked the my p2p website and its not listed yet.

my cable company finally cut off my tsn2 at the worst time.

how far ahead are events listed on that my p2p website when they're going to be shown? I was really hoping we could all catch it over the internet tonight because i don't know many people who have gotten tsn2 yet.

i just signed up for the 8 .99 month subscription and it seems to be good quality, rags getting demolished by the devils btw. I'll see how often i need to catch feeds over the internet to see whether or not to re-subscribe in a month.

It really varies. It can posted within minutes of puckdrop or be posted a few days before the game even stars
