Normally they stick with the first game and start the second game on another TSN channel (2,3,4,5) for double headers but the S/O game they moved it to TSN 2 ruining what turned out to be a good game as they cut off the last 3 minutes so we could watch Montreal lose again.

Not sure why they did it that way this time, but if you PVR like I did you missed out.
Can't you go to TSN On-Demand and watch the whole game?
I have to record the games, so I can't jump over when they switch the final minutes to another station.
You can try guessing which of the four channels will jump to the second game by looking at the region served by those channels.

TSN1 - Western Canada (B.C., Edmonton, Calgary, Saskatchewan)
TSN3 - Manitoba (Winnipeg)
TSN4 - Ontario, excluding Ottawa (Toronto, Hamilton)
TSN5 - Eastern Ontario, Quebec, and Atlantic Canada (Ottawa, Montreal)

I think it's based on the home team, but I could be wrong.
TSN 1 is BC and AB
TSN 3 is SK and MB- When Jets regional game is aired, it gets priority over the bombers and Roughriders.

That would suck not being able to watch a game due to a hockey game, I mean come on, it is early season for the NHL when the CFL ends in November; just sad.  I have always felt that the CFL is considered an after thought by Canadian broadcasters.

But I will ask the question again -  "all CFL games are available to watch on TSN On-demand"  they are posted a few hours after the game is over.
If you have to record a game cause you can't watch it live and the recording gets screwed up then why don't you watch the game on TSN on-demand?

I didn't know about that, I will have to check my PVR to see if I have that option with Shaw.

**Ok, I checked and neither of my pvrs (3400+3500) have TSN on demand but they do have other channels like Nat Geo.  IF you are speaking of watching it online, no thanks, I hate reading online let alone watching programs online. I own 2x50" inch tvs so I can watch big screen instead of 15"**

Unfortunate that Shaw doesn't have an On Demand channel like Bell and Rogers have.

As for watching online, if your laptop has an HDMI output port, you could hook it up to your TV. Not as good as watching an HD broadcast, but not too bad.

I should've been more specific,  I wasn't talking about your PVR or Shaw or Rogers etc.   I was talking about TSN,  attached is the link.   You can watch on your laptop,  IPhone etc.   As someone above mentioned,  I hook up my laptop thru the HDMI and watch the "on demand"  games on the big screen.
No need to record them,  they are all here and "ad free"

I prefer to PVR because it is easier to skip the commentary and get to the next play. Especially when Black/Forde are doing the broadcast.

The TSN on demand is a nice option when the power goes out and my PVR doesn't get the whole game which happened a few weeks ago.

Thanks!  My stupid pvr not only did not record the T.O. game but it wasn't recording the Senators game either!!  At least I can DL the game, put it on a stick and watch it on my big screen.

TSN GO isn't working for me, I get the video until the first commercial break and then it locks up. >:(

And AGAIN those idiots did it, 9 minutes to go in the game, score almost tied and "we are switching this game to TSN 2 so you can see the kickoff of the Winn/Als game.  Bunch of idiots, luckily I got to watch Hamilton choke on TSN On Demand.

FootbalYouBet

we get 6 tsn stations as part of a package deal.  does not every provider give this option??

zero problems

if you don't have this option, then it is your providers fault, not tsn

if you are choosing to save money somehow on not getting all tsn stations available, then that is your problem, not tsn

my on screen info guide tells me exactly which stations will switch and which ones will not ahead of time.
Crush cream soda is oh so good.  I think I'll have another

I don't think I am always right, it just keeps turning out that way

I have all 5 channels and have learned to pick the channel in the region of the teams involved when I PVR so this doesn't happen. There is no need for this, you stick with the game until it's over. I've had to endure post race coverage of NASCAR, post race coverage, before they switch to a CFL game.

Has TSN not heard of the Heidi Rule?

CatsFaninOttawa

I have all five as well, and do the same - record the channel I expect to not switch to the second game.

What I don't understand is why TSN doesn't just put the beginning of the second game on TSN2, with a banner on the regular channels announcing that anyone wanting to switch should go there. For PVR, just record the game on TSN1/3/4/5 as well as an hour on TSN2.
