If you're that big a fan, get all four Sportsnet feeds. I'm sure Sportsnet would be happy to get a little more of Johnny Halifax's money so he can watch Arsenal.

There's really no point discussing regional "fairness." TSN2 is digital only. Two of Sportsnet's likely three games will be on digital only channels. Those with digital subscriptions almost always have access to all four regional Sportsnets (but yes Shaw Cable did take away my Sportsnet East a few years back to make way for Goltv or TSN2 so I know it can be a little patchy).

The only people that will typically be affected by the "fairness" discussion would be on analogue cable (or the new digitallite copies of old analogue cable) and are already missing out on what Rogers/Bell seem to regard as the top games on the premium digital only channels.

I personally would not judge whether any given customer in Ontario or Alberta would prefer to see Arsenal, or Spurs or Chelsea or Newcastle or Bolton. Nor do Sportsnet. In fact that's the point. Put them all on, let the viewer decide for themselves!

And yes I used premierleaguelive.tv last season, it was good when it worked. My hunch is that the service and feeds are managed and controlled out of Britain so I am not sure that Rogers do get a HDTV quality feed directly from that. I think they are exclusive Canadian franchisees of a global backend service. And I think Rogers should consider bundling the internet service in with Sportsnet World TV subscriptions rather than make folks pay top price twice.

We are getting 4 live games, maybe 5 (yes I know Liverpool is meaningless). Just a few years ago we'd be lucky to get two. And to be honest, we don't know we're only getting 4-5. Sportsnet hasn't released anything official yet.
The Liverpool game meaningless!!! Hey we can finish above Everton.

Default Sportsnet schedule

Per the Sportsnet TV schedule on the website:

9:30 AM ET
Sportsnet Pacific Barclays Premier League: Sunderland v Manchester Utd 2 hours 30 minutes
Sportsnet West Barclays Premier League: Sunderland v Manchester Utd 2 hours 30 minutes
Sportsnet Ontario Barclays Premier League: Sunderland v Manchester Utd 2 hours 30 minutes
Sportsnet East Barclays Premier League: Sunderland v Manchester Utd 2 hours 30 minutes
Sportsnet World Barclays Premiership Soccer: Norwich v Aston Villa 3 hours
10:00 AM ET
Sportsnet ONE Barclays Premier League: Tottenham v Fulham 2 hours

Looks like neither Johnny Halifax or Jimmy BC will get to see Arsenal. At least that's fair.

Norwich v Aston Villa - awesome! Ray Graydon and Mel Machin eat your heart out at the nostalgia!

... at least the Tottenham game has some meaning on Sportsnet One.
... and Scouser had the nerve to suggest "all the Canadian sports channel owners obviously have no idea of the implications of the games."
... but I am thankful, yes, really I am thankful for what we can get.

I'm quite sure Norwich vs. Aston Villa is a typo. It should be West Brom vs. Arsenal. I'll try to confirm this though. If it actually is Norwich vs. Aston Villa, that's a complete joke. The Bolton game isn't scheduled until midnight. The Arsenal game not at all (which is what makes me think it's a typo). The first 3 games on delay are all live on other channels.
