NFL Sunday Ticket will be on MTS in HD (2010)

I emailed MTS about Sunday ticket this week. Here is the exchange:


Quote:
Q. Is MTS going to be offering the NFL Sunday Ticket Package thisfall?
If yes, is it going to be offered in High Definition?

A. Thank you for your e-mail Brad. We are currently looking to add the NFL
Sunday Ticket for the 2009season, but we do not yet have an agreement
with the NFL to providethis service, in either SD or HD. If we do add this
package to our service for the fall season, youwill find out about it on
www.mts.ca/tv Sincerely, KeithMTS Allstream Inc.

Sincerely,


Keith

Unfortunately this seems to be MTS's canned response...as I had asked earlier about NFL Sunday Ticket...NHL Center Ice...MLB Extra Innings...TSN2-HD...the other 3 Rogers Sportsnet-HD's...Discovery-HD... and a West feed of all the US HD Networks...and they responded with:

"Thank you for your e-mail xxxx. We are currently looking to add all of those channels for the fall, but we currently do not yet have an agreement with these Services at this time.

If we do add these and other channels to our service for the fall season, you will find out about it on www.mts.ca/tv.

Sincerely, xxxxx

Well the joke's going to be on them when I switch back to Shaw next month for the Sunday Ticket package.

Also, I received a letter from Shaw last week offering me 6 months of TV for $14.95/month.

Talked to MTS tv rep today and he said in one of their last tv update meeting he went too they said that they were in the early stages of getting a contract together. I'm not sure if that's true or not but i'm crossing my fingers and if it's out for the 2010 season good bye shaw.....I sure won't miss those crappy pvr's.

From the shedule link:

Quote:
Channels 533-538 in HD, channels 539-552 in SD
If they use all 6 HD channels, this looks like the same thing Bell has been offering for years. It should result in at least 3/4 of the games being shown in HD.

Shaw actually has the bandwidth to show all those games at once?
