CBC - Please stop buying National Broadcast rights for hockey games!
I'm starting to find it annoying how CBC buys national broadcast rights for games, then airs them only in certain regions. IE if you're in BC right now, its the vancouver game over the winnipeg/detroit game.
I don't think the cable company should have to carry another couple of channels, just for saturday hockey games, but it'd be nice, if CBC only planned or air it in a region.
anyways it'd be nice if they made the games regional in licensing. This way you could pick them up on centre ice or gamecentre live.
The streaming feed on CBC is awful in quality, so its not really an option.
It really only leaves one to use a vpn to circumvent the blackout.
Comon NHL and CBC, please free up the games if there not actually airing in a specific region.
