TSN and True North Sports & Entertainment Limited are pleased to announce today that beginning this season the network’s package of 60 regional Winnipeg Jets games will be moved to TSN3 – part of TSN’s new expanded lineup of five national feeds branded TSN1, TSN2, TSN3, TSN4, and TSN5 that debut on Monday, August 25. The announcement comes as TSN’s Winnipeg Jets broadcast schedule was confirmed.
To access regional Jets games on TSN3, fans must live in the Jets’ designated broadcast region, which includes Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Nunavut, the Northwest Territories, and parts of Northwestern Ontario including Kenora, Dryden, and Thunder Bay. TSN subscribers with participating television service providers in the Jets’ broadcast region will receive TSN3. With games being moved to TSN3, the previously offered TSN Jets service is no longer required and will be retired.
TSN’s Jets coverage will feature play-by-play commentary by veteran broadcaster and Manitoba native Dennis Beyak. Colour commentary duties will be shared by Shane Hnidy and Brian Engblom. TSN Winnipeg Bureau Reporter Sara Orlesky will follow the Jets all season long to deliver news on the team across TSN’s slate of programs and platforms.
Along with regional Jets coverage, TSN3 will also feature a variety of world-class sports programming available nationwide – among them the World Juniors, Grey Cup, FIFA World Cup 2015-2022, Grand Slam tennis, all of golf’s majors, and much more.
For radio coverage of the Winnipeg Jets, TSN Radio 1290 in Winnipeg will continue to bring fans live coverage of every Jets game as the team’s official radio broadcaster. TSN 1290 delivers all the play-by-play action and analysis from a rotating crew of veteran broadcasters familiar to Jets fans. Play-by-play calls are handled by Dennis Beyak and Paul Edmonds, who most recently served as the co-host of TSN 1290’s morning show. They are joined by analysts Shane Hnidy and Brian Munz, both of whom have been part of TSN 1290’s Jets coverage since it debuted in 2011.
