  1. Is videotron going to have the new TSN channels?

    • At this stage they appear to be the only major provider not signed up for the additional channels. I would contact them and let them know you want to see them.

  2. Will there be additional NFL coverage?

  3. About time TSN is expanding its sports channels roster instead of just the two it only just had with many other sports channels around the world (think SuperSport in South Africa and Sky Sports NZ as a couple examples). No doubt this is exciting. It can now get that fuller March Madness coverage and even get the women tournament up there. World Cup games will be huge now with TSN and RDS holding the rights. Equally important, those new TSN channels should gets lots of play come the Rio De Janeiro 2016 Olympics; actually, the Olympic sports will get broader coverage and even sports-sectionalized among the member channels in the Canadian English coverage part…

  4. Thanks for this, Dan! I noticed two TSNs, 1 and 4, on my cable this morning but I don’t think 4 was live at the time. I’m actually surprised there’s five different feeds for the US Open!

  5. Will there be more NFL games on these TSN channels, in addition to the games on the CTV affiliate stations, we in southern Ontario are usually getting the Bills at 1 pm, With the great lineup for week 1, I’m hope TSN/CTV will show the best possible match-up, I hope.

    Another note, any word on whether or not CBC sub-licences the 2016 Olympics to TSN and/or Sportsnet? At this point it appears CBC is going to go it alone. Any news there?

  6. How much longer does Sportsnet have OUAA Football? It would be nice if CIS got all of their games on TSN.

    • Sportsnet will not be showing OUA football anymore. Not surprising since any afternoon NHL game on Sportsnet would overlap an OUA game. Saying that, I am surprised they didn’t move the OUA game of the week to noon just so it can still be shown.

  7. Still waiting for my 3 new TSN stations. I was told we would have them by next Tuesday. Shaw has known for how long? Ridiculous!!!!
