WE asked our Facebook and Twitter followers if they'd subscribed to the Jets channel since the free previews had ended, and their reasons for opting in or out. Here's a sample of their replies:
Scott Hazlitt: $10 bucks a month is nothing. Signed up with MTS as soon as I could... If you don't have season tickets it's worth it!
Jacquie North: We got it as soon as it was available!
Jamie Mager: I don't have the time with school being so busy. It's not worth the extra monthly cost when I won't be able to watch the games.
Ev Tjader: Not available in our area
smcnewf: Of course. Since I got shut out on season tickets what's $10 a month to watch all the games.
charaton: Want to, but nope: $10 is almost a quarter of our total tv bill. I'll be listening to games on the radio/catching them on CBC.
TBone68: Yes I've subscribed to TSNJets. I was mad about "The Pittsburgh Glitch", but at least fans can see all 82 games.
Dan Vadeboncoeur: I honestly don't have time to watch every single game, so it's not worth the extra monthly cost. If I could purchase it on a game-by-game basis (Like pay-per-view, I guess) I might do that if it was something like $5 per game. As it stands, I'm happy with watching the main TSN and CBC coverage when it is on.
BisonGuy51: I have subscribed to the Jets channel via Shaw. Why? I want to see every minute of every game.
Matt Pentecost: Me and my brother in law subscribed as soon as we heard about the channel, he lives in Selkirk and I live in Minnedosa but we are both originally from England. The channel is awesome and it's good to cheer for a local team on a national scale the only thing I would say is that it should really be free for people in Manitoba but I love it anyway!!
