So TSN just announced new they are launching a number of new channels:

From the release:


More live game coverage spanning leagues including NBA, MLS, NCAA and more

I wonder what this means for those of us with MLS Live - if we will see an increase in blacked out games as a result.

I think this is more because of a la carte pricing recommended, this way if people don't want to spend a ridiculous amount on a sports package and instead pay for channels individually, they will air more crappy sports, and split the good sports over all 5 channels so that if you want to see it all you have to spend more money.

If they charge $5.99 (number from my bum) for each a la carte TSN suddenly it's $30 to get your sports. had in 3 or 4 Sports net Channels.. and boom there is the $100 a month again (regular TV plus 8 or 9 Sports channels)

Since they are only blocking games from MLS Live when they are on the main TSN channel, I think this probably won't lead to any more games being blocked than now.

Glad I'm used to blurry streams. All these new channels these days seem so overpriced.
