For out of Alberta CI subscribers: does this bother anyone else?

some networks like TSN now recognize that games last only 2:30 so that's the way they are listed on your reciever. But for some reason Sportsnet games are still listed at 3:00 so the games usually start here at 10:30 local time, right. So the game is over at 1am and I don't get to see the postgame or the interviews becasue CI cuts away right away.

Now I'm paying over $220 for CI yet the game is still blacked out on SportsNet West. What are they afraid of, I'll see more Telus commericals than usual?

I don't know why CI Subscribers don't have fulltime access to all the SN. I mean we are purchasing a premium package.

Or at the very least someone in master control, I used to work in the MCR of a local TV station here so I know a little about these things, could recognize games are now only 2:30 and that would mean they could switch over to SportsNet West as soon as the game is over.

This is something so simple but try explaining it to the guys at Bell.
