Let Canadians abroad watch hockey sign now

CBC.ca / HNIC is letting down Canadians abroad.

We are a group of individuals who are thoroughly disappointed that the CBC has decided to allow people in Canada to view HNIC via webcast but not people outside of the country. Many Canadians outside of the country have made difficult life choices to leave our beloved country. The pain of being far away from friends and family is greatly reduced by internet technology such as email and the web. While no technology will ever replace being in Canada during the magic time that is the playoffs, words cannot describe what being able to watch your team compete for the Stanley Cup means.

The vast majority of Canadians should have reasonable access to CBC free to air television. How many Canadians have a computer and broadband connection but no TV? People outside the country have no such access to CBC TV and must resort to either audio broadcasts or illegal means. If this policy were consistent across the website it would be one matter but why is it we are allowed to watch Newsworld via the web and not HNIC?

Let Canadians abroad watch hockey!!!

    Nobody watches hockey here in Florida, meaning no networks bradcasting down here. CBC should definitely get games online.
