Regarding Sportsnet/TSN channels & costs

Grasshopper

Hi I'm sure this has been asked before & answered so my apologies if it has......why is it that you can't order individual Sportsnet & TSN channels as pick & pay channels (at least here in Vancouver) & why so expensive for the Sportsnet theme pack & TSN theme pack.....$15?......as someone on a tight budget (or anyone) no one should pay $15 for a theme pack (especially when each channel in each pack mostly shows the same programing)......other theme packs aren't $15? .......just curious

I don't think the jump in the rates for the TSN and Sportsnet theme packs was ever really explained although I'm sure that the SHAW company line is that both TSN and Sportsnet started charging cable companies more for their channels so these higher costs had to be passed onto the customer. It really doesn't make much sense either since all of the TSN and Sportsnet channels are now available through every TV plan from SHAW except for the " Limited TV " package. This might be a way for SHAW to force those that are on a Grandfathered TV plan to switch to their newer TV plans. I've got 8 more months left on my 2 year plan which includes Medium TV ( 8 theme packs ) and if I decide to stay with SHAW I will fight to keep the same plan I have now.

Grasshopper

Just an opinion.   The prices of Jays tickets went up last year substantially.  So Rogers knew that there would be a fall off in attendance.  So they figured the people that didn't buy tickets would order Sportsnet.  And of course Rogers owns the Jays and Sportsnet.  So basically they are just trying to screw people.
