Webcast of BC/CGY game

i live in calgary but i am on vacation in Montana right know and i wanted to watch the stamps game last week but it was blacked out on the webcast.

now i see that this weeks game VS. the lions is also blacked out.

Why is this it is making me mad? is there any other way for me to watch the game.

I assume it has something to do with broadcast rights in the states.

Check out the CFL press release about US broadcasts, might be able to figure it out from there.

I also seem to notice that the games that tend to have the blackouts on webcast are also the ones that Sirius Satellite Radio broadcast as well. Whether or not that's a positive corelation, is up to debate, but does render suspicion.

Makes sense

Certain US TV rights deals offer exclusivities...this includes internet rights...therefore online broadcasts may also be blacked out.

There is no correlation to Sirius Satellite Radio...that is merely coincidence.


I hate that monophy c***! you don't have DISH, your up[ the creek w/o a paddle.
