Has anyone ever seen LEAFTV HD listed on EVU pamphlets in the past? I don't think so.

Nice chart, but is it accurate or updated?

Why did they make a point of showing that *C has a ton of FREE HD channels?

Do any other providers offer a selection of FREE HD, or is their always some premium to be paid to get any at all?

What if I'm not interested in all the eye cotton candy fluff?

What is the cost per HD channel when you factor in either the FREE HD's and then add the additional fees?

There is no info on our system about that channel being removed...

Leafs TV HD is a channel only offered in a certain portion of Ontario...

When you went to the Bell site were you in your account? Are you in the portion of Ontario which could receive Leafs?

I answer based on what I learned when I was working at BEV...it's possible that somethings have changed since then

So you are saying that Express Vu were wasting HD bandwidth by ONLY offering Leafs HD in limited area's.?

No. She was just answering the question. Nothing more, nothing less.

Where did it go?
It appears as though it was available last year, or maybe I'm wrong?

Again, there was no info that this channel has been removed in our system

The channel was also on 424 for folks outside ontario who have centre ice

We are talking about Leafs HD, not SD.

Hockey in SD is a waste of time.
At least in HD, I can see the puck!

....That wouldn't be good.

....BTW....I notice that Jody Vance is listed on the LeafsTV website....so that's where she ended up... kinda sad.....from anchoring SportsNet to appearing on a channel that is only available in part of Ontario!
