  • Sportsnet has a new ad (that you’ve probably seen 100 times if you watch Jays games) selling Sportsnet Now as a legal alternative to unreliable pirated streams. It’s interesting that this ad acknowledges the existence of such methods, which suggests they’ve become very popular.
  • TSN’s Bob McKenzie has a podcast.

    Rogers seems to be to blame for MLB Network not being available anywhere else in the country except for on Rogers. They sponsored them to come here and no doubt got a deal on the subscription rate which must be ridiculously high even for Bell not to carry it. Looking forward to maybe next season and the Jays having to play a game on MLB Network and then we will see the uproar.

      That’s unlikely. MLB Network isn’t owned by Rogers, and except for being on its cable system there isn’t actually that strong a relationship between the two. There’s no direct interest in Rogers boosting subscriptions for MLB Network.
