I’ve been looking forward to Road to the Winter Classic: Leafs vs Red Wings and now I find out that HBO Canada won’t even be showing it? We have to watch it on SPORTSNET? CENSORED? AND WITH COMMERCIALS?
Um… no, that’s not true. HBO Canada will be airing 24/7 in conjunction with HBO just as they always do. HOWEVER, in addition, the series will also air on basic cable networks Sportsnet (across Canada) and CITY TV (in the GTA). HBO’s broadcast will be uncensored and commercial free while the other broadcast will be censored according to time slot standards.
oh thank god. i was about to write a letter of complaint.
But I checked the HBO Canada schedule and there is absolutely nothing about the Winter Classic listed.
