Thanks for that info. Using an iPad Air 2 and Safari. Because who would possibly use such archaic devices. lol. Ok, I’ll try and fix what’s ‘wrong’ at my end. I hit a site the other day which stated “no Flash, no good for you”. Good ol’ days...

That is not the purpose of regional blackouts. They have nothing to do with going to games, or who else is playing that night.

Really? What's the purpose then? I always wondered.

Regional blackouts have to do with rights fees. Rogers has the national hockey rights, and each Canadian team can be shown nationally only a certain number of times. The other games can only be shown on local TV in the teams' home regions as shown on the map from a previous post. If someone outside the home region wants to watch one of those games, they have to subscribe to Centre Ice

Oh, now I understand I think. You're saying it's blacked out for me because I'm in B.C. But wouldn't be if I lived in Toronto and subscribed to the same package.

Or use a VPN once logging in to TSNGo or Sportsnet Now. That seems to work also. What you said also explains why the VPN needs to be a Toronto IP address.

Shaw has finally updated their online Channel Lineup PDF. It used to be in classic channel number sequence for "essentials" and then by theme groups. It now seems to be alphabetic order of channel name divided into English and French channel groups and then Audio/Radio/Sports/PPV and Adult.

They seemed to have left out some Standard Definition channels in the list like the TMN's

Also Lygnsat seems to be more up to date with Advanced Channel Numbers and all the new HD channels added over the summer.

Frame is an Armchair Tourist channel, currently showing the fire log.

The channel number is 949 according to Zap2it.

Shaw Direct used to have the Frame but dropped it some time ago. Zap2it is always up to date. They still had Sunday Ticket channels listed in their old channel number position in the 400's until recently.

History Channel East/West

I'm pretty sure that I used to get both channels. I do get History HD. The funny thing is that both (E/W) show in the guide but I am only getting one. If I am only supposed to get one of them, why do both show in the guide since non-subscribed channels shouldn't be showing? Anybody else? If you get History, are you getting both feeds in addition to HD?
