Leaf's TV HD Leafs Vs. Oilers

Did Bell show last Thursdays game in HD?

Star Choice blacked it out in HD saying the NHL did it, just wondering what was the truth??

Thanks

SC said it was the NHL that was blacking it out, the message on the screen said that Ontario residents cannot see this game in HD, please tune to 466 Leadfs TV in SD> I knew that those CSR lied about it, Leafs TV buys the righs to the game, I guess S.C. just wanted to make us pay for a PPV.

It was blacked out when I tuned into SN3 ( I think that was one of the channels it was on) but when I tuned to LeafsTV HD it was on there.

HD

According to Leaf's TV website they were not broadcasting the game in HD, only SNWest had it, I guess Bell gave you all a freebie, it's about time

Blackout

I spent 35 minutes with the CSR rep for SC last night, he looked up every rules and was quite helpful. He stated that LTV did not have the HD rights for the game that SNETW bought the rights, so if Bell showed it in HD, I applaud them for sticking up for there customers.

Leafs TV website noted that in was not broadcasteing in HD but must have changed there mind.

The SC screen stated that the game was not available for Ontario residents in HD!

Figure that out.

I'll give this one to Bell for doing the right thing and showing the game in HD, now that I had to switch to SC, I wonder if I am going to have to sufer this fate again when the next game is played???

Good Job Bell!!

Wasn't there a PR stating that all of the regular season games shown on Leafs TV were to be in HD? Think that was in the thread reguarding the preseason games not being broadcast in HD.

I watched it on the HD channel on BTV but didn't think it was that great of quality, just chalked it up to old arena with bad lighting and what not. Might not have been in full HD.. who knows.
