Canada News Wire
MTS, Manitoba’s leading full-service telecommunications provider, today announced that it will carry TSN’s expanded lineup of five national feeds: TSN1, TSN2, TSN3, TSN4 and TSN5. With this expansion, Winnipeg Jets games will now appear on TSN3 and be included in MTS TV’s basic service channel group.
“At MTS, we understand how much Manitobans love their Winnipeg Jets,” said Paul Norris, vice-president of brand and consumer marketing for MTS. “With even more great sports programming included in MTS’s basic channel package, Jets fans will be able to watch more than 60 games — home and away — without paying a separate fee.”
TSN3 will appear in standard definition on Channel 22 for MTS Ultimate TV and Classic TV subscribers, and high definition on Channel 1022 for MTS Ultimate TV subscribers. MTS Digital Cable subscribers can also catch the hockey action on Channel 6.
Winnipeg Jets regional games were previously only available with a subscription to the TSN Jets channel. Starting this season (2014-2015), TSN’s package of regional Winnipeg Jets hockey games will be included in the basic service channel group on TSN3. Existing subscriptions to the TSN Jets channel have been discontinued and customers will not be charged for the 2014-2015 season. For the full broadcast schedule please visit: www.tsn.ca/jets.
