I was under the impression that both Hockey Night in Canada and TSN would be carrying some Jets games.

Is this still the case or do we have to pay to see them via Bell satellite, Shaw or MTS?

I just hope they show some games on ESPN America... It's costing me more than season's tickets...

I believe TSN/CBC are showing 21 games "nationally" and will be available to everyone.

The remainder of the games will be carried by TSN/Jets for free on Bell, and free until December on Shaw, with a $9.95 monthly charge thereafter (I guess to April?).

Some people on hfboards.com (okay, one guy) is bitching about the price of $10 a month, mostly because other markets get it for free.

Wow.

Considering I was paying $10 pay per view for Sens games some time back, $10 a month as a freakin' steal. Even though I have season tickets, MTS can basically take a blank cheque from me for the Jets channel.

Shaw has already placed the Jets pre-season opener on their schedule. Columbus is here on Tuesday and it is on channel 304 with a half hour pre-game show.

I'll be there but will also record it. For posterity.

Good lord the excitement is palpable...

MTS TV customers score with TSN Jets

Customers who subscribe to the season by October 31 will have chance to see a Jets game from the MTS private suite

WINNIPEG, MB, September 18, 2011 – MTS today announced that TSN Jets
will be available to its MTS TV customers. The new channel will provide
coverage of Winnipeg Jets 2011-12 home and away games.

"We know that TSN Jets is important to many of our customers and as the
local, full-service telecommunications provider and an official partner
of the Winnipeg Jets, we are pleased to offer TSN Jets to Manitobans,"
said Kelvin Shepherd, President of MTS. "We always strive to provide our
customers with the best choice in programming."

TSN Jets will be available to all MTS TV customers on free preview until October 31, 2011.
Starting Monday, October 3, 2011, MTS TV customers will be able to sign
up for the telecasts that will continue after the free preview ends.
These telecasts will be available for the remainder of the season for $9.95 per month.
Between October 3 and October 31, 2011, customers who commit to
purchase the entire season of games will have a chance to see a Jets
game from the MTS private suite.

TSN Jets will be available in standard definition on channel 168 and for MTS Ultimate TV customers available in high definition on channel 480.

Winnipeg Jets games not carried on TSN Jets will be broadcast nationally
on either TSN or CBC, both of which are part of the MTS TV basic TV
package.

TSN Jets

MTS is an official partner of the Winnipeg Jets and we are proud to
announce that we will be carrying the new TSN Jets channel for our
customers on MTS Ultimate TV and Classic TV. The new TSN Jets channel
will offer 60 Winnipeg Jets home and away games.

TSN Jets will be available on channel 168 on both Classic TV and
Ultimate TV. MTS Ultimate TV customers will also have access to TSN Jets
in HD on channel 480.

We will be offering a free preview to start the season so MTS TV

preview will end on October 31, 2011.

On October 3, customers will be able to sign up for TSN Jets to ensure
they continue to have the channel after the free preview ends.
Information on how to subscribe to TSN Jets will be provided in the
coming days.

The channel will be available at a rate of $9.95 per month at the conclusion of the free preview period.

Customers, who commit to a full season subscription to TSN Jets between
October 3 and October 31, will have a chance to see a Jets game from the
MTS private suite. A full season subscription is $9.95 per month for 5
months starting November 1, for a total of $49.75.

More information about this contest and how to order TSN Jets will be available soon.

And yeah, Grumpy... it feels more real than it ever has that the Jets are back, but I'm not sure the enormity of it will hit me until my first game (Sept 28th!)
