Bell Media and Rogers Media have announced in separate releases that Rogers customers using the Rogers Anyplace TV mobile app can get live streams of Bell’s TSN and TSN2 ( as well as the national CTV and CTV Two networks) live and on-demand programming, and that Bell Mobile TV will be adding live coverage of the Toronto Blue Jays with the addition of Rogers-owned City and Sportsnet channels (Sportsnet East, Sportsnet Ontario, Sportsnet West and Sportsnet Pacific) to its service.

Both companies will charge $5 per month for 10 hours of mobile TV viewing.

"Thanks to successful relationships with Canada's top content providers, Bell provides access to the widest variety of live and on-demand TV programming delivered directly to superphones, smartphones and tablets," said Wade Oosterman, President of Bell Mobility and Residential Services, and Chief Brand Officer at Bell. "Now with even more choice in sports and entertainment programming, Bell Mobile TV just got better."
