Usually TSM is very reliable (especially if he actually posts a name), but I'm not sure on this one.

I believe that Thunder Bay is in the Jets and Leafs region. The Leafs boundary didn't change.

See post http://www.digitalhome.ca/forum/show...6&postcount=87 re: Jets TV territory.

Basically Thunder Bay and west are now joint Leafs/Jets. So you will get all regional Jets (via TSN Jets) and Leafs (via Leafs TV and Sportsnet Ontario) games. CBC will make the decision on how to split the area for HNIC, and I'd venture to say that they would lean towards the Jets UNLESS the team is way out of the playoff hunt and there is a more compelling game on somewhere else.

It will be a doubleheader for HNIC that night with Pittsburgh at Vancouver after the Leafs-Habs game.

Yes I know. I wasn't clear. What I meant was, by 10pm election coverage can easily be wrapped up and they can have Pit-Van.

It would be nice to have election coverage wrapped up in an hour and have viewers see the start of the next game but, the chance of that happening is low. The CBC has pulled away from live action before and gone to election coverage which is usually over two hours. That happened in 2001 during a Colorado-St. Louis playoff overtime game when viewers in British Columbia were taken away abruptly from the game to election coverage. The remainder of the game that was pre-empted was shown on tape delay after midnight.

The HNIC season starts tonight with a doubleheader of exhibition games, Toronto at Buffalo followed by Anaheim at Vancouver. The games start at their normal times of 1600h Pacific, 1900h Eastern and the western game starting at 1900h Pacific, 2200h Eastern.

Well, OTT/WPG game is in SD widescreen, not a good sign for Sens/Jets fans this year...

At least your getting it in SD widescreen. CBET is showing the game 4:3 OTA right now.

Is it even possible to do HD in Newfoundland? I'm pretty sure there are no HD trucks on the island, and it would cost a lot to bring one over for one game.

CBC will probably do all games in the US in HD, as well as the main 7pm ET game and the 10pm ET game.

True, this weekend was especially bad for HD truck use, CFL in Moncton, RDS had Habs in Halifax, TSN had Jets in Charlotte/Nashville, Sportsnet had Jays in Tampa, plus the other CFL games, and Jays in Chicago starting Monday.

CBC had games in Buffalo and Vancouver, and SRC had College football in Quebec.

They brought the "Laurentien" truck from MTL to do the game in St. John's, clear shot of it on the opening of the broadcast.

Picture quality where I'm at didn't look as clear as normal. Then again, I've noticed all the Kraft Hockeyville games I've watched over the years have lacked quality compared to regular season broadcasts, but if that's the price that has to be paid to get NHL caliber hockey in more diverse places, I'll pay that price for one game a year.

Agreed. Part of it may also be the arena isn't optimized for HD broadcasts (lighting wise and such)

The puck drop to the new hockey season is only a day away! The HNIC doubleheader for tomorrow and on Saturday are all televised nationally because there are no other canadian teams playing. The surprise is that the CBC has already released the four way split telecast distribution of games.

Calgary @ Toronto Alberta, Atlantic Canada, and Ontario excluding the Ottawa Valley and Northwestern Ontario

Winnipeg @ Phoenix Manitoba, Saskatchewan, British Columbia, and Northwestern Ontario

Colorado @ Montrea
l Quebec only

Ottawa @ Washington
Ottawa and Ottawa Valley only

The above games are at 1600h Pacific, 1900h Eastern
The second game three hours later is Vancouver at Edmonton for all viewers.

Interesting that Winnipeg @ Phoenix is being shown in BC. I wonder if it is because the game will be in HD and the CBC has been having troubles getting HD to the "new" DTV stations during primetime.
