My guess Leroux stay at RDS since they still have the WJC rights and draft coverage. Also Leroux look to have a bigger role on CKAC.

My guess is the Vox team will handle tvasports junior coverage.

Its not HUGE news because basically TVA will do what RDS did last years. except the 2 little show.

they won't do a lot of Q game. Basically voxtv will do about 20 of those 30 gm

but its a start and a wake up call for RDS. Basically since RDS got habs rights they couldnt care less about other sports

All the better for the viewers.

But Bell's attitude right now is freakin stupid and childish. Not that I'm THAT surprised...Unless.....Videotron is asking the world to Bell in order for them to get it. That also could be happening.
Both are to blame. They are putting their egos over the population. Bell won't put TSN-Habs on Videotron and now Videotron won't put TVA Sports on Bell.

You do not see that in Ontario or elsewhere.

And PS: PKP has a huge ego. (Remember him saying how the HABS needed to consult the potential owners before hiring a new coach?)

You mean when Sportsnet One wasn't available on any other provider than Rogers?

Yes, only a Quebec thing...

There's a big difference between a channel starting out on another network and eventually being picked up by others versus Videotron/Bell intentionally **** blocking channels from each other. Come on now.

Yet all the other Rogers Sportsnet channels are on Bell.

This is a new network trying to attract viewers.

Also, Sportsnet One is now on Bell.

I mean Videotron has blocked other channels on Bell to. Yoopa, Sun News to name a few are not available on Bell.

Though all those stations are relatively new. Give him some time and common sense will kick in.

I think it also took Videotron like 2 years before getting TSN2; both companies are at fault but it is ridiculous how these people have no care at all for the population.

Saputo probably isn't too pleased with the fact that most of the Impact games will only be available to Videotron customers. That's terrible for a new MLS team trying to attract more fans and make its presence felt. Hopefully he'll talk some sense into Quebecor and they'll make TVA Sports available to everyone.

Impact don't start the season until March, so I can see Quebecor waiting out on giving the channel to Bell until that time.

I wonder if RDS 2 will be on Videotron now.

I don't understand why. In Quebec we are Habs fans, and the Yankees are the Habs of Baseball (with 3 more championships !!!!)

The Red Sox are the eternal loosers, just like the Leafs or the Bruins before this year.

Yankees are seen as a team who buys themselves championships. Boston does it too, but Yankees does it more. Which means that the only way we can hate the Yanks, is by hating them....AND liking their enemy more. Which we do. And aside from the Bruins, a lot of people here feels more connected to the Boston area than the New York one. Personnally, I like both, they both bring different things, and I find them both interesting in their own style. With Martin there, I don't mind the Yanks. But instead of hoping that any of those teams win, I look within my own country, I see a Montrealer that does a good job at running this team and hope to see the Jays win.

Quick question about TSN-Habs:

If I'm ordering TSN from Bell TV, do I need to specify TSN-Habs, or is it automatically given based on my region (Montreal)?

If you get TSN and TSN HD, it will come automatically.

The way I heard about it was that Bell was playing hardball so that Sun News would not be available on Bell.

We should dress a list of what we want to see on a Sport Channel and the people we want to see and send it to TVA Sports. Hey Quebecor always say they are a company for the people, look at the stuff they put on, populist ******** so they should listen to the fans, right.

Any news if we will be able to get it in Atlantic Canada? Looked at the guide and I didn't find anything. Doesn't look good for us over here.
