Vader, all 60 Jets games will be on TSN3, which is part of MTS Basic. Further discussion of the NHL schedule should take place in the NHL thread:

Anyone have any contact info for an MTS door to door rep who wants to sign a new customer up for a 12 month promo? I'm already on MTS, but for a family member of mine.

Thanks

Are they even offering 12 month promos anymore? I think my installation orders have only been for 3 month, or 6 month promos. I can't say for sure though.

I think they offer 12 months at different times of year! I know even Shaw offers a max of 6 months now also.

I just got a 12 month promo in May for MTS. I am paying $55 a month for Lightning 10 and TV with 4 Theme Groups. I did not need Home Phone - but that was an extra $30 a month if I had taken it. After the promo is over, I will probably stay with MTS internet and bundle my cell phone with them for savings each month.

I was on a 36 month (3 yr promo) with Shaw (TV, high speed 20, phone with features), but left after 24 months. It was $80.90 first year, $110.90 second year, and $140.90 third year. Fourth year regular price. (Large Bundle - Reg $164.90 a month) My family member is also on this same promo with Shaw currently and looking to downsize the TV package, as they do not watch 2/3 of the channels they currently have.

Just curious, but I know if they are only offering 3 or 6 month promo's they will probably just wait till a 12 month comes around.

Thanks for all your help

Changed Packages - Channels didn't show in Guide but I could get them?

Flipped off my kids programming last night and flipped on Sports Fans so I could watch the Jets game last night, but none of the Sportsnet channels showed up in my guide? OLN did, Golf Channel did, etc. After a few tries 20 minutes later, I could actually key in channel number for Sportsnet 360HD and get to the game, but it never showed in the guide (even this morning). Anyone ever have that happen to them when they do a package swap? Kind of annoying and was wondering if I had done anything wrong...?

Did you either modify your guide manually, or change the settings to show only subscribed channels? The latter should update automatically I think, unless there's a glitch in their system.

Yes, that is why I flipped on Sports Fans, because the game was on Sportsnet 360...

Yes, my system is setup to show all subscribed channels. When I flipped over it showed OLN HD, the Golf Channel HD, etc... all the other channels in that Sports Fans package except for the Sportsnet Channels and the NFL Network... really weird and annoying.

My guesses about the reasons for the price increases:

Basic: The addition of the extra TSN regional channels. I noticed that Shaw and some other providers didn't include them in Basic, so Bell Media is probably charging extra for them. Unis, AMI-télé and YTV HD West were also added.

Adventure: American Heroes Channel HD was added. I wonder if Spike also contributed. It seems there have been some strange things with this channel on other providers.

News: Sun News and LCN were added.

Sports Fans: Sportsnet is probably the biggest reason for the increase. I think Rogers Media is probably increasing the prices since they have to pay for the NHL contract for the next 12 years. MLB and FNTSY were also added.
