Don't know if this is the case for everyone outside of the Leafs region, but on Telus TV in Edmonton the Sens/Leafs is NOT blacked out on Sportsnet Ontario. Right now I am watching on the SD channel since Telus was supposed to give me Ontario/Pacific HD yesterday but they didn't...(havent had much luck with their CS ever since I signed up last week). I will update on the HD feed as soon as it's available to me.

Is the game blacked out for anyone else?

Man I am not happy with Telus so far...apparently it takes a MIN of 2-24hrs for a channel addition to show up on my end. With Shaw it was instant in most cases...I guess I'm watching this one in SD tonight, which is better than nothing. However the sound is brutally quiet, my AVR is cranked and I can still barely hear anything...(problem with all SD channels on Telus TV), I'll have to remember not to switch to an hd channel or else I'll blow my speakers/go deaf or both.

I knew Centre Ice showed pre-season...it's just Shaw and Telus who don't want to waste the bandwidth and please their customers.

thanks for the posts........got it here in Ottawa. The feed is slightly better then the feed was from Russia for the 1972 summit series. Hope this isn't another year of watching the Leafs in SD even though my cable provider (Rogers) is broadcasting in HD

There's no waste of Bandwidth. On Bell, it is the same feed but remapped to one of the CI channels with different restrictions. I guess it's easier for Bell to do that with their equipment than enable the regional sportsnet feeds to everyone in the Leafs area plus CI subscribers. Why would customers be un-pleased? The content is available in the same location as all the other CI games.

I seem to remember Shaw Direct not blacking out any preseason CI games (from Sportsnet) last year. I'd assume this may be the same for all providers and some just choose to not black out the Sportsnet channel instead of re-mapping the feed to another channel.
