This should answer any questions you guys might have regarding the stations that will be broadcasting NBA games next season:

ABC - 15 regular season games, 5 1st- or 2nd-round games, NBA Finals.

ESPN - 75 regular season games on Wednesdays and Fridays, up to 36 playoff games (including Conference Finals), and a "Tuesday Night in America" feature on ESPN2 that cuts into games in progress. Note that ESPN games will NOT be blacked out, unlike TBS/TNT's past seasons.

TNT - 52 regular season games (48 of which will be part of Thursday night doubleheaders in an EXCLUSIVE time period), up to 45 playoff games (including 2nd round and Conference Finals in exclusive time periods).

AOL/Time Warner NBA Channel - 4 regular season games per week.

We don't have TNT in Canada over here, so the only way we can steal a game or two nationally telecasted game is from TBS, yes we do have TBS over here.

man that sucks. Can you guys in Canada get Direct TV or some other dish company to get all those channels. Because over here(or at least in Cali) a dish cost less than cable and you get twice as many channels.

The problem is, if the people at the customs find out about the dish, i'll be in deep sh-t.

Yeah, I have a question. How do I get the "AOL/Time Warner NBA Channel?" I've never really even heard of it! And if they're going to show 4 regular season games a week, I do not want to miss out! Where/how do I get this channel?

If anyone knows, some assistance would be appreciated. Thanks. :)

This AOL Time Warner Channel will be replacing the now defunct CnnSi channel if you got that. I hope they show a wide range of games so I get to see guys like Tskitishvili, Wagner, and JWill next year. I have seen enough of TMac and Kobe!!!

Thats good news because I was getting that CNNSi channel but I never really watched it and a few months ago it was canceled(probably for low ratings). So if this new AOl channel replaces it I should be able to get it.:yes:
