Mts and Shaw are in talks to get the channel but just like rogers with sportsnet1 Bell is asking too much and both mts and shaw have to decide what package they want to carry the channel in and charge customers for it

An off the record conversation with someone from MTS today... he's heard through the grapevine that MTS is being shut down by Bell in any talks for the channel right now (probably Bell charging too much), but that if/when it comes, it could be carried in the existing Sports HD package and the same package as Sportsnet is in for SD.

Be sure to call Bell corporate and complain... not their TV division, but their TSN office or whatever.

Don't blame MTS (or Shaw) - it is not their fault this time.

Shaw picked it up today - $9.95 a month after December 1st.

I heard a "rumour" that MTS might be able to broadcast the arena feed for free in SD with no audio... not quite the same thing?

Acording to the above article:

"And it seems that MTS TV could soon carry the regional Jets channel as well."

I think we will be fine getting this before the season begins At least I hope so

I have it on good authority that MTS and Bell have reached an agreement and MTS will be carrying the TSN Jets channel.

Let's wait and see how much it costs first, and what package you may or may not need to receive it. I have a feeling we might not like the news entirely...

10-15 a month would still be ok to me, I have a feeling it might just be a premium channel on its own.

WINNIPEG, Sept. 18, 2011 /CNW/ - MTS today announced that TSN Jets will be available to its MTS TV customers. The new channel will provide coverage of Winnipeg Jets 2011-12 home and away games.

TSN Jets will be available to all MTS TV customers on free preview until October 31, 2011. Starting Monday, October 3, 2011, MTS TV customers will be able to sign up for the telecasts that will continue after the free preview ends.
