Super Channel to show Strikeforce Finale in Canada


Earlier this week, Super Channel --the longtime broadcaster of Strikeforce events in Canada-- stated they made the "difficult decision" not air the final Strikeforce event this Saturday night (Jan. 12, 2013), which left many bloodthirsty Canadian fans unpleased and wondering where to watch the event.

However, on Friday, the situation took a turn for the better as the premium cable channel announced that deal had been reached with Showtime to broadcast the event to fans north of the border.

"Due to a last minute deal with Showtime, Super Channel is very pleased to announce that we will be broadcasting the final Strikeforce event, live from Chesapeake Energy Center, Oklahoma City." Super Channel stated in a release. "We would like to thank Showtime for their efforts to bring this event to our loyal Canadian fights fans."

They should. The cable companies don't control whats shown on the channel, they only control what channel they carry. If SC says thy are showing it then it should be on. Looks like SC decided to carry it at the last minute so I'm sure the guide just hasn't updated yet (it might not as of how late they added the program).

Anyone know if Shaw Cable is going to be showing it? Nothing is showing up in the guide for it on any channel including SC.

I dont know anyone with Superchannel.The movies on there are shit, which is too bad cause I kinda wish it was worth getting. Would be dope to have Showtime boxing, but the Khan Showtime Card was on TSN anyway

Jeez, I didn't know man. I dropped it like thirty years ago when the vcr seemed to make it redundant.
