NBA League Pass in Canada sign now

We, the passionate, loyal and dedicated fans of NBA basketball in Canada are making the following petition.

We object to the fact that here in Canada we are not given the same television programming choices available to fans of other major sports such as Major League Baseball (MLB), National Football League (NFL), National Hockey League (NHL), NASCAR and NCAA basketball. Whereas fans of these sports can purchase so called "League Pass" subscriptions whereby every single league game is made available for live viewing, Canadian fans of NBA basketball have been excluded from such a programming choice.

This exclusion has occurred against the following background:

1) Proliferation of programming delivery capabilities for consumers - from basic cable to digital cable to competing satellite companies:
2) The existence of at least one Canadian NBA franchise for the last 10 years
3) An increased strategy on the part of the NBA to market the NBA product internationally more aggressively
4) As mentioned above, the proliferation of "League Pass" subscriptions for other major sports.
5) The existence of the "NBA League Pass" programming subscription at least in the territory of the United States.

Thus, we, the signers of this petition demand that all relevant parties - the NBA, the Toronto Raptors, Raptors TV, Cable & Satellite providers and the CRTC - come together to make available the same kind of "League Pass" subscription that is offered to fans of other professional sports in Canada for fans of NBA basketball in Canada.

As a last point, please consider that the nature of this request is that we are petitioning for your permission TO ALLOW US TO GIVE YOU MONEY!!!

    Current Cable/Satellite Provider Bell ExpressVu There should be more emphasis on showing more of Steve Nash's games to Canadian b-ball fans. The Canadian sports channels show only a fraction of the Suns' games. I think there are more NBA fans, not just S
