Hi

I do not have cable television. I am a customer of Bell, and I have Bell Mobile TV on my phone. When available, I watch the game on my phone. Tonight, I was not able to due to blackout restrictions. I decided to sign up for NHL Game Center in order to be an active member of LeafNation. After going through the rigamarole to sign up for the service, I tried to watch the end of the 2nd period of the Leafs Vs Canes game. (Feb 4 2013). As it turns out, I am still under blackout effect because it is available on cable TV in my region. I do not have cable television!
Does or will LeafTv have a service affordable and available to a fan like me? All I want to do is come home from school and forget about my troubles and watch my favourite hockey team!
I am ver dissapointed that there is not anything like this, especially being a customer of Bell, which owns the Toronto Maple Leafs!

Hook a brother up!

Bell does not have the rights to LeafsTV as it is a division of Rogers Media and was before both companies merged to buy MLSE, and it wouldn't matter since the same was on SportsNet Ontario, and is blacked out for people in northern Ontario for instance. And even then, as a Rogers customer, I have the entire SportsNet package and I can't watch games from the other channels as they are in blackout restrictions as well. It's region limited and you are better off finding a good stream then praying you can watch the Leafs outside of southern Ontario. Also, considering how bad the LeafsTV service generally is (you get what you pay for for 2.50 a month), I don't expect them to do a mobile service anytime soon.

To be honest, I think they kind of messed up this year.

Rogers/Bell seem to be reworking the "leafs broadcast region" rights to go through their services instead of the old Leafs TV interactive. At least judging by the link being taken down from the official site...(top of the page under Leafs TV, where it says "online" doesn't work)...I don't see why they wouldn't offer an online viewing option for non-customers...but they need to sort that out first...part of the hiccups of new ownership I suppose...

As HB said there was a link to stream Leafs games directly to your computer and it was operational up to a few weeks ago, but now it's gone for some strange reason.

I went from the message board -to leafs tv tab-to order online. There used to be two options there and now there's only one. And that option says can't find server.

this is the link it gives

You may have to go with Sonny's solution

I should mention Sonny's solution is technically illegal and is not endorsed/promoted by this board... ;)

There is a legal solution that I completely forgot about, use a VPN such as hidemya**. Many people use them and it's totally legal

@staff/moderators  If you want us to avoid using illegal methods to watch the Leafs online, then you should bring back LeafsTV Interactive (The paid, online streaming service for Leafs games).  Every year there are more and more sports fans that are ditching their cable and satellite service.  Do you know why?  Because there's this new invention, it's called the internet.  And it's really easy to stream whatever live sports we want with this thing called the internet.  I'm willing to pay for the service, as I have done in the past, but if the paid-streaming service is not made available, I'll just keep watching ALL the Leaf games for free from illegal streaming sites (Yeah, I don't really care if you endorse it or not, makes no difference to me).  Because there is absolutely no way I'm going to pay $100+ a month for cable or satellite.  

 

PS. Oh, and using a VPN with NHL Gamecenter sounds like a good idea too.  Either way, I don't have to pay for cable to watch the Leafs, and neither does anyone else.
