    What about Canucks 4k?

  5. Amber says:

    How about MTL in 4K? And why does CBC cover more Leaf games? Why are their game blackouts even for people who pay?! Also, I was told hockey night in Punjabi would be on RGCL this season. But it isn’t! I love that but sometimes I can’t watch live. Hope someone answers my questions.

    • RogersMike says:

      Hi Amber! Hope you had a great weekend. Here are the answers to your questions:
      – There are no remaining Canadiens 4K games on the schedule for this season.
      – For CBC and Leafs coverage, I would recommend contacting CBC directly for more information.
      – For info on blackouts, please visit this link: https://nhllive.rogers.com/en/support-game-availability
      – While Hockey Night in Canada Punjabi is not available on Rogers NHL Live, it is available to stream on Sportsnet NOW. You can find more information here: http://www.snnow.ca
      Hope that helps. 🙂
