Sportsnet One rumoured to be coming to Bell TV

Digital Home has been informed that Bell TV, Canada’s largest Direct-to-Home (DTH) satellite provider, has reached an agreement with Rogers Media regarding carriage of Sportsnet One.

According to a Bell insider that spoke to Digital Home, Sportsnet One will be available on to Bell Satellite customers in the next few days, most likely when the NHL regular season gets started on October 7th.

No word yet on pricing but if earlier reports are true, all Bell TV customers, including those who don’t want Sportsnet One, can expect to pay more.

    This better be true, I am going to switch to a new provider if Bell doesn’t pick this up.

      Thanks for the info!!!!

      I have called and complained to Bell about this – and was considering changing providers if we did not get the channel.

      I looked up the HD – it is 1409 for Vancouver

      HD Channels:
      Sportsnet One – 1409
      Sportsnet Vancouver – 1436
      Sportsnet Edmonton – 1437
      Sportsnet Calgary – 1438
      Sportsnet Ottawa – 1439

      Will there be blackouts like the regular Sportsnet channels?? It’d be nice to see out of market games but I’m happy just to not miss the Canucks games!
