Each retains the rights to their series for the entire round.


So then after the first round will the games be shown on cbc if Toronto is eliminated ?

For all those asking, Farhan Lalji just confirmed via twitter that all Canucks game will be available on TSN mobile TV.


Who watches TV on a 3" screen? Even further, who PAYS to watch TV on a 3" screen?

TSN has great coverage but this is horrible news for me. No cable and no CBC live stream = I'm stuck having to watch the playoffs on some low grade, choppy 250kbps illegal feed.

so bummed

Yea man I watched all season games on one of those sites, whichever had the game in better quality. Hopefully people stream the first round in better quality then the season games but the qualities decent imo.

Can't watch the Canucks because it's blacked out or Gamecenter isn't streaming the games at all?

ya, telus has standard def TSN available, just found out. i'm paying for the high def, but i could always watch on low def (really.. what's the point of broadcasting so much low def).

You all do know that in the US, the broadcasters HAVE to broadcast EVERYTHING in high def.

The fact we have so much low def is the same reason we pay so much for cellular... thanks CRTC! Way to keep our canadian content laws in place! wouldn't want to make us play on an even playing field and actually excel and succeed and be able to compete - no, we would rather lower the bar so anyone (er... wait a sec, there is no competition)... never mind...

on a brighter note, should be a good series! I was at the sharks game 2 years ago when the canucks lost - it is UNBELIEVABLE how great the sharks fans are. it's a great market down there - tons of interest in the team, etc. that is a great success story for a US southernish market. I think west coast works for hockey, deep south doesn't...

CBC has the rights to all playoff games from the second round on as far as I know.

TSN cover the 1st-3rd round I think. They have gradually gotten more coverage over the years.

I hope people complaining about it being on TSN are either dirt poor or can't get access to TSN. Because if you have the money and access to TSN and won't pay a few bucks to watch playoff games you are either an extreme skinflint or aren't much of a fan.

I find TSN has a better HD feed. So I am kinda glad the games will be on TSN.

I'm very happy this series is on TSN! It saves us from listening to PJ Stocks stupidity! He's one dumb sports caster. I'm sure the only reason he's on is to give people a few laughs with his idiotic comments. Thank you TSN!

Not true. In February of 2009 digital transmission became mandatory. That may or may not include HD broadcasts. http://dtvfacts.com/faq/

This casual fan was looking forward to enjoying the series on CBUT, like he has in seasons past. Seems that the NHL's not so interested in cultivating casual fans, though.

CBC and TSN are the same to me. Sure, The commentators are better, but,

The panel here is crucifying Kassian for that hit? What hit?

If this is going to be the norm, this may be my last year watching hockey....
