Hi folks ,

I just posted the note below in the Eastlink thread. I'm posting here as I have not yet seen any discussion on TSN's new Alternate channel.

Hi
Many of you might have seen the press releases and news surrounding TSN signing a deal to broadcast more Habs games in english.
The letter below has been circulating around Eastlink and i thought some of you might like to see it.

Hopefully Eastlink/TSN will settle quickly with TSN and we wont have to wait the 10 months it took for us to get RDS HD.

TSN has introduced a new channel for eastern Canada (Bellville Ontario, East) called TSN Alternative. This channel will carry only Montreal Canadians games (in English) and remain blank the remainder of the time. We are in negotiations in order to provide this channel.

Currently the same Montreal Canadians games scheduled to be carried on the new TSN Alternative channel are available to EastLink customers that subscribe to RDS (Part of the French Variety Package) in the Maritimes and Atlantic. In order to provide an interim alternative to our Maritime and Atlantic customers, EastLink will discount the French Variety Theme in Maritimes and Atlantic to $2.00/month from the regular price of $4.00. This theme will provide EastLink Customers access to RDS and the same Montreal Canadians games (in French) available on the TSN alternative channel.

The $2.00 discount will be in effect until June, 2011 and will then revert to the regular theme price of $4.00. Customers can at that time continue or cancel that service.

Please do not hesitate to call one of our friendly Customer Service Representatives for more information or to add the French Variety Pack to your services,

This thread more or less discusses the new channel, as well as the Canadiens games that will air on it. So far only Bell has added it, but I expect Eastlink, Cogeco, Shaw Direct and probably Rogers to add it before too long. I can't imagine TSN is asking much for it.
