TSN2 and the Raptors

TV25 regular season Raptors games are going to be televised on TSN2. There's only one problem with that. If your cable provider is Rogers, as mine is, you can't get TSN2.

This is a great deal worse than throwing the games on RaptorsTV, because at least a Raptors fan can get RaptorsTV. The only way to get these 25 Raptor games is to change service providers to Bell or one of several regional companies, including Cogeco.

Rogers and TSN, let's make a deal.

Bell owns TSN. Rogers doesn't like Bell (unless it's in regards to the Olympics). TSN2 may not be on Rogers for a while yet.

you rogers subscribers (i'm cogeco) need to keep pounding them to get tsn2; I've read lots of complaining, but that's the only way it's going to get fixed. good luck.

1) CTV owns TSN, not Bell.
2) Rogers owns Sportsnet
3) Sportsnet isn't carrying the Raptors anymore
4) TSN2 is a new competitor for Sportsnet
5) Sportsnet screwed up
6) Rogers screwed up
7) Rogers wants to punish TSN2 for picking up the games they dropped
8) Punishing TSN2 = punishing Raptors fans
9) Rogers needs to grow up

Well hopefully this will mean more people will switch away from Rogers. I did last year and it was the best thing I could have done. Good riddance to them. Bell isn't much better, but at least they're cheaper and their PVR kicks ass!

Why doesn't Rogers charge a premium for the folks who want it.

Personally there is already way too much sports channels I pay for and don't want.

TSN putting those Raptors games on TSN2 is a major disrespect to the Raptors by TSN. Using them as leverage in a deal. The Raptors deserve for Toronto, and GTA fans to see their games. Tsn sucks.

this really pisses me off as a raptors fan.

in addition, it will also pave the way for the demise of the nba in toronto.

fans can't see games on tv... chris bosh leaves... interest in basketball diminishes... bye bye raptors : (
