Sports on Canadian TV: January 7-8

It’s a new year, which means a slightly new format for the Sports on Canadian TV listings. I am scrapping the French version, simply because I don’t think enough people read it to warrant the time I spend on it. However, I will now include French channels in with these listings. English channels are coloured in red; French channels are in blue. I am also removing the (HD) tag because I figure people will watch on the HD channel (if you subscribe to it) anyway. If you liked this feature, let me know and I might bring it back.

One other question (I’m looking for lots of reader feedback to improve the site as the New Year begins), does having the leagues/sports bolded help you find what you are looking for and skip the rest? Any feedback is appreciated.

Enjoy “When I Come Around” by Green Day from their new live DVD while you read.

  1. I think you mean Bengals @ Texans :)

    • That I do. Not used to Houston making it to the playoffs out of the AFC south.

      • When it was announced that Peyton Manning would be out for the season, it was pretty much a given that the Texans were going to win the AFC South this season. With it being their first ever playoff game in franchise history (especially at home), the crowd at Reliant Stadium is definitely going to be ready tomorrow afternoon and I think that the Texans are going to win. :)

        As for my other first round playoff picks, I have New Orleans, Atlanta & Pittsburgh advancing to the Divisional Playoffs.

        The HD tag doesn’t matter to me. Though sometimes certain games on HNIC (usually those featuring the Senators or Jets) might not be available in HD. So I think that it might be a good idea to bring the HD tag back.

        I think that it is a good idea to bold the leagues/sports that we are searching for. A better idea might be to do a weekly list sport by sport.

        One last thing, thank you for posting the version of “When I Come Around” from their new live DVD. I went to see Green Day when they came to Ottawa in 2005 and they were awesome! :)

  2. new sports on canadian tv done brilliantly. Love this blog especially the monday morning commentator/mid-week notes segment…Keep up the good work!!!!!!!!

  3. What’s the deal with the Sunday night NHL on TSN2? Is it an NBCSN game?

  4. A question for you Josh:

    Is TSN contractually obligated to place NBCSN games on TSN2 or do they choose to do so themselves?

What do you think?
