For viewers who only have Sportsnet Ontario, Sportsnet West or Sportsnet Pacific, you will be able to watch US Open 9 Ball starting at 1 p.m. (ET)/10 a.m. (PT), Premier League Darts starting at 2 p.m. (ET)/11 a.m. (PT), the Patriots/49ers NFL game at 4 p.m. (ET)/1 p.m. (PT) and once that game ends, we will join in progress the Angels/Red Sox MLB playoff game
Right now ONLY Sportsnet West and Pacific are airing MLB Playoffs Game 3: Philadelphia at Milwaukee and Sporsnet Ontario / East are currently airing US Open 9 ball Pool.

I don't get why they are doing this. They should be airing baseball nationally. Everybody can watch football between CBS and Citytv, while people without digital can't watch MLB.

And why cant Rogers move the baseball to say Omni or any of their other 192371987123 channels?

Also guess Rogers is afriad the 1pm baseball would go past 4pm and thus wont show it on their HD channel. Guess a NFL game takes priority over baseball playoffs? shrug

I just spoke to Star Choice ... they are having an up link problem with Sportsnet HD. They do not know when the problem will be fixed.

And by the way, while I was on the phone to SC I requested that they add SN2 HD.

Shaw had a big black screen most of the day.
If Shaw/SC can carry 2 TSN-HD's, why can't they carry 2 SNET-HD's?
