I have the free Rogers-TV preview package, extended now to Oct. 3, of Sportsnet One, Sportsnet's new channel.
There's been lots of controversy about this spin-off network and which local cable carriers are carrying it and which are not, as was the case when TSN launched its spinoff network, TSN2. At that time, Rogers subscribers (Waterloo Region for instance) couldn't get TSN2 until the situation was finally resolved and everyone gets it - for a price, of course.
This one will be resolved eventually, too. But until then, because Sportnet wants to promote its new spinoff, we have the bizarre situation tonight of the Toronto Blue Jays, er, Rogers Blue Jays, playing the Tampa Bay Rays on Sportsnet One, with much of the country missing it, while everyone else gets the Detroit Tigers against the Minnesota Twins on the main Sportsnet feed, which is available to the vast majority of subscribers, whether they are served by Rogers, Cogeco, Shaw or any other cable service, depending where they reside.
Doesn't seem to make sense, does it?
