  1. I’m curious about the new “channels” that were created by Sportsnet coming out of the whole SN-ONE thing. These games that are on “RSN Vancouver” or “RSN Flames” – what’s the distribution on them?

    At first, I figured this was a way to sort of limit the damage of potentially not having the games available through certain providers. Take RSN Vancouver: I thought that what they were doing was creating a new channel that would cover fewer households. That by calling it “RSN Vancouver”, they were basically saying that it wouldn’t cover all of Canucks territory (which includes such distant places as Prince Rupert, Fort Nelson and yes, Whitehorse), but instead would just cover Greater Vancouver. This, I figured was to allow Centre Ice subscribers in those more distant areas to have access to the games, since they weren’t going to be available locally.

    But then two nights ago, I tried tuning in on Centre Ice (which I’ve purchased through the local cable company Northwestel) to the Canucks/Wild game, but it was blacked out.

    So, what’s the deal with these regional SN-ONE channels?

    • Basically its so that Sportsnet can air multiple regional games at a time and also so they don’t have to blackout Sportsnet One programming for the rest of the country.

      You should be able to get RSN-Vancouver in Whitehorse, assuming you get Sportsnet One of course. It is available throughout all of the Sportsnet Pacific territory. Sportsnet Flames and Oilers are available throughout all of West territory and Sportsnet Sens is available throughout all of the East territory.

      The only tie in they have with Sportsnet One, is that you have to subscribe to Sportsnet One to get them.

      I hope this clears it up a bit.

      • That helps for sure.

        I guess I’m able to get SN-ONE up here, but only if I change TV providers. NWTel still hasn’t signed on with the ONE, so I’d have to switch to satellite to get it.

        I’m not a Canucks fan so it doesn’t hurt me too badly, but I feel for the Canucks fans up here with NWTel who bought Centre Ice thinking they’d get every game, and are now faced with two fairly lousy options: waiting it out to see if NWTel picks up the channel, eating their $200 investment in Centre Ice and moving to satellite.

What do you think?
