Why is the Jets/Leafs/Sens/Habs game blacked out on TSN in my area?

As TSN owns regional broadcast rights to a package of Winnipeg Jets, Toronto Maple Leafs, Ottawa Senators, and Montreal Canadiens games, we broadcast games in the teams’ respective broadcast regions as determined by the NHL.

If you are receiving a blackout message during a Jets/Leafs/Sens/Habs game on TSN, then you live outside the teams’ respective territory, as defined by the NHL. For more information about blackouts during NHL games, please contact the NHL.

If you are located within a team’s respective territory and access TSN through a subscription purchased directly from TSN and use a satellite internet service provider, we recommend accessing the content on or through your mobile device. Please turn on your location services to “While Using the App” or “Always” to help resolve the issue. Note: You may be able to cast the content on your big screen. For additional support, please contact us via chat

 

Does TSN or TSN+ require subscribers to purchase any additional equipment? 

See “Which devices and platforms does TSN support?” above for more information.

 

Will streaming content on the TSN app use my cellular data?

Streaming content on the TSN app on your mobile device via Wi-Fi will count against your Internet data plan when used at home, but not your cellular data plan. If you are using a free Wi-Fi network outside the home, streaming content on the TSN app will not count to your home Internet data plan or your cellular data plan. If you stream content on the TSN app using your cellular data, it will count towards your mobile data plan.

 

Will streaming content on TSN.ca or the TSN app consume my monthly Internet bandwidth allocation?

Watching content on the TSN app or through the TSN website on any device connected to your home network or Wi-Fi will consume bandwidth, similar to other streaming services.

 

How much bandwidth will I use while streaming video on TSN.ca or the TSN app?

This will depend on the device you are accessing TSN with. On a mobile device, it can range from 0.3GB to 0.9 GB per hour.

 

Will TSN use my personal information/data?

Any and all use of customer information will comply with our Privacy Policy, which can be accessed here.

 

What are the system requirements to stream content on TSN.ca from my computer?

For the best video viewing experience you should have a high-speed Internet connection. The speed of your connection will determine the quality of the video, and how quickly the programming will begin playing on your computer. If you are a Mac user, you must have Mac OS 10.6 or better.

 

Do I need to disable my anti-virus software or any firewalls on my computer in order to stream video on TSN.ca?

TSN operates using commonly accessible web protocols (HTTP, HTTPS) on standard ports for which most firewalls will allow access. If you have custom security in place, it may affect the ability of TSN to properly function. If you have installed a firewall at home, simply accept the request from your firewall asking if it’s okay to access TSN. To make TSN an exception to your computer’s firewall, go to your Internet service provider’s online Help section and follow the instructions. For firewalls at work, you will need to contact your company’s Information Technology department.

If you require additional assistance, please contact help@tsn.ca or call us at 1-833-TSN-HELP (1-833-876-4357).
