Game Availability in Eastern Ontario, Quebec, and the Atlantic Provinces

If you live in the portion that is coloured in red, you fall within the Montreal Canadiens and Ottawa Senators broadcasting region.

Since Rogers NHL GameCentre LIVE is an out-of-market product, this means that with a subscription, you are blacked out from viewing the “home” team in any given market. To simplify, if you live within the red area, encompassing Ontario, east of Belleville, Quebec and the Maritimes, you will be blacked out from watching regional Canadiens and Senators games.

Ontario, east of Belleville, Quebec, the Maritimes
With a full-season subscription to Rogers NHL GameCentre LIVE, you would be blacked out from 38 Canadiens and 55 Senators regional games.

You would, however, get all national games for both teams—44 Canadiens games and 27 Senators games. National games are ones that can be viewed by everybody from coast to coast on programs such as Hockey Night in Canada, Scotiabank Wednesday Night Hockey and Rogers Hometown Hockey.

Aside from national Canadiens and Senators games, you would also get over 1,000 national and out-of-market games from around the NHL (including the All-Star Game, all outdoor games and regional games for other teams), as well as the entire 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs.

If you think that you may lie on the boundary between regions and are unsure of which one you fall within, check out our handy Where to Watch tool. Simply follow the link, choose your province and the team you’re attempting to watch and enter your postal code—it will tell you which region you are in and which games are available to you.

If a game you want to watch is blacked out, you can access this game if it is airing on Sportsnet by subscribing to SPORTSNET NOW, which you can use to stream without a cable package.
