Raptors Heat Game Today

I'm on Rogers and don't get TSN but do get ABC which is showing the game today at 3:30. Will I be able to watch it?

Im quite happy to see ABC is airing the game, that means people who have antenna can pick it up and watch, so they don't have to be left out. The one thing they will miss out though is they won't hear commentating from Jack n' Mat which is quite entertaining

So did 4K look any better than 1080i/720p?

Just trying to remove that damn setup progress bar.

Just FYI, Raptors game on TSN is like HNIC with Canadian teams. Meaning that TSN produces the show independently from any American network and it is broadcast separately from the American network, i.e. there is no simsub involved and therefore no blackout on the American side.

And the Canadian produced games also supports the Canadian Broadcast Industry and helps to keep jobs in Canada.

And if the BDU's execs just took a paycut, it would help keep jobs in Canada too. But that's way too crazy and fair!

There's a lot of things I'm against, and exec's pocketing all the money is one of them indeed, but that's for another discussion. But preferring a Canadian telecast over an American one is something I am definitely in favour of for other reasons already mentioned on here
