    confusing n.h.l tv schedule for 2014-2015 ????????

    CAN anyone understand this shit? Until last year weekend games cbc , weekend /weekday games RDS? What the fuck is going on? How is a persona supposed to watch all habs games without subscribing to 3 fucking different sports channels???????? Can anyone decipher this shit?

    As I understand it (if I understand it which I am not sure fuck) , the first 22 Saturday games are going to be on TVA sports, then ,the next are going to be on RDS except the following weekends games on CBC. Really I think this is a shitty way for the NHL to make us pay for more than one sports channel, why else would they do that it makes no sense?
    Can anyone explain this shit, I feel like cancelling all my sports channels in protest !

    Have not checked it out but I am with cogeco and a subscriber can chose any 15 channels ( plus you get all the networks ) and are allowed to change your picks every month per channel.
    Just read the schedule, looks like there will be a lot of channel switching.
    I do not think outside the box, I do not think inside the box, I do not even know where the box is.

    I mean this is ridiculous, should I have to subscribe to two different sports, channels, just to get all the games? Seriously? Also , waht makes me mad is that I am the only one who seems to care.

    I think that no one else here realizes whats what yet.

    Ocean, here is the link for the only Canadian team that matters.

    My understanding is that for French telecasts, all Saturday games are on TVA Sports + a few weekday games for a total of 22 games. All 60 other regular season games will be on RDS. RDS will have the 5 pre-season games too starting next Tuesday 9/23.

    For English it's more complicated. All 82 Habs games will be available in English on a combination of CBC (shown as HNIC), City TV, Rogers Sportsnet, and TSN3 & TSN 5 when playing the Sens & Jets.

    I used to subscribe to NHL Center Ice but think I'll skip it this year. I already get all the Rogers Sportsnet channels + City Tv Montreal + CBC Montreal + RDS 1 & 2 so I'm okay for the 82 games.

    BTW apparently even FX Canada (owned by Rogers) will have various NHL games this year too.

    Hope that helps.

    Should it really be that hard? Shouldn't it be like easy . I watch hockey so that I can relax, not so that I can feel like I am looking at an accounting or tax doc. I mean they are being rotten to people who pay for sport channels. I mena be honest, there is some scammy-ness going on in these tv contracts. Just like the nfl trying to get people to PAY to play music at the halftime Superbowl show. Just plain larceny.

    All the past years its been very easy to follow Hockey if you where a fan of the Canadiens. All you had to do was tune in on RDS.... Piss me off that with this new channel, TVA sport, we have to get it if we want to see all matches. I am with cogeco too, so maybe there is something i can do but lately we have been receiving promotion paper about getting TVA sport but it would be 4$ per month more... thats way overpriced for watching 4 games a month... hell i even skip some when i don't have the time.

    Maybe i should call and see what deal they can make... but we already pay something like 45$ and we have just the basic stuff... Canal V.D.Z (this letter naming is so stupid) tva, rds and much of the rest we don't even watch...

    Honestly exept canal d and z, and rds, and tva to an extent(mostly for the news) i don't even give a shit about the rest...
