New Channels always generate a lot of discussion so this thread is for discussing new channels in 2011.

You're welcome to speculate and discuss new channels coming to Sasktel in 2011 but PLEASE unless it's been confirmed by an official press release, be clear about what is speculation and what is fact.

A post saying "a CSR said it was coming" is NOT official, however, it does put it in the "highly" likely category.

If its posted on the CRTC site that its been approved by the CRTC but Sasktel has not said anything, I would consider that in the "not very likely at this time" category.

NHL Centre Ice

Early bird price $179.00 per season.
Regular price is $199.00 per season.

The home market teams for Saskatchewan are the Calgary Flames, Edmonton Oilers and Winnipeg Jets. The broadcast of games in which those teams participate may be restricted. The restriction mainly prevents the broadcast of games where one of the indicated teams is the home team or in circumstances where the game is being carried by a regional network.
