Why are Jets/Habs/Leafs/Sens games blacked out on TSN in my area?
Beginning in 2014, TSN captured regional broadcast rights to a package of Montreal Canadiens, Winnipeg Jets, Toronto Maple Leafs and Ottawa Senators games. These regional broadcast rights allow TSN to deliver live coverage of the Habs/Jets/Leafs/Sens in the teams' respective broadcast regions. Each team's broadcast region is determined by the NHL, not TSN or TELUS. If you are receiving a blackout message during a Habs/Jets/Leafs/Sens game on TSN, then you live outside the teams' respective territory, as defined by the NHL.
Should you wish to subscribe to games for those teams that are not available on a national feed, you can get them on NHL Center Ice.
Current restrictions are as follows:
Features Winnipeg Jets games and the Jets games will be blacked out for customers outside of Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Northwest Ontario.
Features Toronto Maple leaf games and the Maple leaf games will be blacked out for customers outside of Ontario and outside of Ottawa.
Features Ottawa Senators games and the Senators games will be blacked out for customers outside of southeastern Ontario, Quebec and Atlantic Canada
