The Canadiens REGIONAL Englsh territory is Quebec, Atlantic Canada, and Parts of Eastern Ontario, which is almost identical to the Senators territory for Sportsnet East. TSN's promos for the games state this region. The page on their website which is at the start of this thread points all this out.Leaffan1967,
Ummmmm this is about REGIONAL broadcast rights. I am in Ontario, therefore, unless whoever owns the broadcast rights broadcasts the game nationally, I am screwed, because I am outside of Quebec. Comprenez?
The Senators share virtually the same territory as the Habs and NL is included.For the record the entire Maritimes are also part of their "regional" coverage area. Basically the Habs control everything east of Ontario except NL I believe. While this great for Habs fans I do wonder sometimes if such a large coverage area for one team is really fair to the other NHL teams and their fans.
I was talking about in English. The Habs have 28 games on CBC and 16 nationally on TSN for a total of 44 games on national TV. The Leafs have 40, the Sens have 30 and everyone else has 24. So, Habs fans shouldn't complain about the lack of games on national TV.Umm I like to be able to watch it in a language I understand.
Maybe I misunderstood something, but from what I have read about NHLCI, it does not sound like a guarantee that I would get all Habs game in English here in northern Ontario.Then subscribe to the NHLCI package and you can watch all 82 games in English, between HNIC, TSN Wednesday night and the out of market/TSN2 feed.
