I wouldn't bet on it. I understood it had to be on ALL four regional channels to satisfy the national distribution requirement. Meaning they couldn't only put it on two or three channels. I would imagine SN1 eliminates that problem since it is a national channel.I don't know if anybody on here can really confirm it, but I've always understood that these events HAVE to air on all 4 regional Sportsnet channels
Thursday Night Football
Sunday NFL games (with exceptions when they conflict with the MLB playoffs)
I think that is everything. It is likely that Sportsnet can move some of the Division Series over to Sportsnet One, but I am almost certain that the ALCS/NLCS and World Series have to air on all 4 regional channels.
I think you are correct. I may be mistaken but I believe the LDS are optionals, but the LCS and World Series are not.Sportsnet has chose not to air MLB Divisional Series games on some of the local channels in favour of a local hockey game. I don't think that the requirements are the same for Divisional Series as they are for the NLCS/ALCS and World Series.
