You know that it's spring when the Masters comes along. TSN is again providing a full suite of of online 2014 Masters contentfor Canaidian golf fans starting on Monday April 7th for Canadian golf fans on tsn.ca. You can view the Masters stream on TSN.ca at http://www.tsn.ca/live/golf/masters2014/. TSN.ca will provide Canadian golf fans with up to five video feeds. Before the tournament there will be coverage of the 2014 Master from the range, and during the par 3 contest. During the tournament there will be streaming video from Amen Corner (Holes 11, 12 and 13), the 15th and 16th holes, two Featured Groups, and Masters In-Depth which I assume will be analysis and highlights. TSN also has an iPad/iPhone Master app available again this year. golf fans with Apple products can use the app to view the same 5 feeds during the tournament. Android users can download the TSN GO app and watch the regular TSN feed with the caveat that the TSN GO app only works on phones. TSN has again made android users the poor cousins even though Android now has a bigger share of the smartphone market than Apple. Links to the apps for various devices can be found on the schedule page at http://www.tsn.ca/golf/feature/?id=19499

I have been looking around trying to figure out if it's possible to stream the 2014 NCAA March Madness tournament in Canada with some success. TSN is broadcasting the tournament in 2014 starting with the second round, you can see the schedule here and TSN does allow Rogers and Bell subscribers to watch TSN and TSN2 live at http://www.tsn.ca/tsnschedule/?collection=72&show=68592&section=Sports. Make sure you have your Rogers Anyplace TV username and password or MyBell username and password available to log in. TSN has links to their Android and IOS apps on the TSN GO page at http://www.tsn.ca/go/. All we can do is wait until the tournament gets underway and see whether this works. Based on what it says on the schedule page it looks like the first round games are only available using the TSN GO app for either android or IOS. Note that when I installed the TSN GO app on my Nexus 7 it wouldn't run, poping up a tablet support coming soon message box. Looks like you need to use up your data if you want it to work.

You just have to love the good old CBC. They are going all out in their coverage of the 2014 Olympics offering apps for iPhone and Android and streaming online so Canadian Olympic hockey fans should have no trouble watching both the mens and womens Olympic hockey tournament at http://olympics.cbc.ca/ or on their mobile devices. Best of all it works fine on Linux too. Go Canada Go! Here is a link to the schedule so you can see when Canada plays http://olympics.cbc.ca/news/article/article=olympic-hockey-schedule.html

Unlike last year when there was a pay per view offering TSN is not live streaming any of the 2014 world junior games. Wiziwig.tv says it will live stream the games at http://www.wiziwig.tv/competition.php?part=sports&competitionid=158&discipline=icehockey, unfortunately they are one of those sketchy sites that has lots of confusing ads over the videos. What ever yo do don't install any software that they will suggest will imporve your viewing experience. Tsn.ca is offering "video on demand" replays of the games at http://www.tsn.ca/videohub/Default.aspx?collection=181&show=211605&section=Sports.

Updated with information for 2014 World Junior Hockey championship tournament

The 2014 World Junior hockey championship tournament will be held Dec. 26 2013 - Jan 5 2014. For 2013 TSN is not offering any live streaming coverage. Wiziwig.tv says it will live stream the games at http://www.wiziwig.tv/competition.php?part=sports&competitionid=158&discipline=icehockey but I can't check out whether this is true or not until the tournament starts. Tsn.ca is offering streaming video replays of the games at http://www.tsn.ca/videohub/Default.aspx?collection=181&show=211605&section=Sports

The 2013 World Junior hockey championship tournament will be held Dec. 20 2012 - Jan 5 2013. For 2012 TSN is offering Pay Per View live streaming of all games for people living in Canada at http://worldjuniors.tsn.ca/tsn/. Individual games are priced at $3.99 or you can pay $19.99 for a package of all the games.

The 2011 World Junior hockey tournament will be held Dec. 26 2011 - Jan 5 2012. For 2011 the TSN.ca live streaming schedule can be found at http://www.tsn.ca/canadian_hockey/feature/?id=11970. Unfortunately unlike last year only a selection of 2011 junior hockey games will be streamed live. My hope for the continuation of the live streaming of all of the junior hockey games that occurred last year sadly did not come to pass. If you can wait and not check the score TSN.ca will also provide online-only streaming of all games being broadcast on TSN and TSN2 shortly after the live broadcasts have concluded.

(info from 2010)
Finally TSN is offering live streaming of a sports event. Thanks to sponsorship TSN is offering live streaming of all the games of the World Junior Hockey tournament. Not only are they live streaming the games but you can also watch any games you might have missed archived on the same page. Though this post is a little late in the game past experience may mean that many people didn't bother to go to the TSN website to see if web streaming was available for the tournament.

I hope that this is the beginning of a trend for TSN to offer more live junior hockey streaming in the future.
