CBC, Score Media Ask Regulators To Look Into TSN2 Programming
Published September 15, 2008
IN THE DARK: The GLOBE & MAIL's William Houston reports TSN2 has been unable "to receive carriage on major cable and satellite systems," leaving it currently on only "two major distributors." As a result, Sunday's CFL Eskimos-Alouettes game on the net will go "largely unseen in the Edmonton market and many parts of Canada," as TSN this weekend is broadcasting the Ryder Cup. Meanwhile, TSN2 "will announce this week programming additions that include expanded Champions League soccer content and a schedule of NHL and NBA telecasts in 2008-09" (GLOBE & MAIL, 9/15).
