No More Edmonton Oilers PPV's?

Picture Stolen From SportsnetONE
On the radio yesterday, Mark Spector was talking about how Rogers Sportsnet is going to have SportsnetONE, a new channel that will have more NHL hockey games shown on it. He said the Canaucks will no longer have PPV games because this new channel bought those games to show for free. Mind you, you will have to pay the $2.99 a month to get this extra channel, but if you take into consideration that each PPV game is $14.95 to order, the $2.99 a month sounds cheap to me.

Let's hope that this wicked new channel does the same for the Oilers games too. I HATE PPV's!!! And I'm cheap. ;)

  1. "take into consideration that each PPV game is $14.95 to order, the $2.99 a month sounds cheap to me." especially when we had three PPV's in one month. I'll gladly take SportsnetONE.

  4. Thanks for the comment Anonymous. Your right. the possible 60 Sportsnet games plus the 14 from CBC and the 8 from TSN (not sure of the exact numbers) equals EVERY SINGLE Oilers game is televised. AWESOME!!!

  8. Sweet Mother Of GOD! I would freaking love having no PPVs. I hate paying for games the Oilers don't show up for. At least this way I don't feel bad for shuting it off when they suck.

  10. $2.99 a month. It's about time you got some satisfaction.

    I'm "stuck" with Centre Ice. I'm not bellyaching too much, but $2.99 a month for you guys is long overdue.
