The Heartbeat - Schedule of Upcoming Events in Canada and on TV or Livestreamed

What a weekend coming up. I hope you have a chance to attend an event in Canada or at least watch a few on television or livestreamed. There are SO many World Championships happening. I wish I was home to enjoy them all, but am away so my PVR will be set and unfortunately will probably not be available to livestream, please cheer for me!
If you know of an event that could be featured in The Heartbeat, feel free to contact me suzanne[at] or via Twitter @olympichearts

Televised and Livestreamed Events
(all times Eastern unless otherwise noted)

With the introduction of TSN1, TSN2, TSN3, TSN4 and TSN5 this week, it's an exciting time for sports fans (although more for professional sports fans), but for those of us who like both, it's been a great week for tennis with US Open action on 3 or 4 stations showing different matches simultaneously. There has also been extra Canadian content with interviews with Eugenie Bouchard, Milos Raonic and Vasek Pospisil as well as interviews with their coaches.

Here's a breakdown of the different stations:

TSN1 - Pacific (BC and Yukon)
TSN2 - National
TSN3 - West (Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Northwest Territories, Nunavut)
TSN4 - Ontario (Leafs viewing region)
TSN5 - East (Eastern Ontario, Quebec, Maritimes)

Although, the content isn't necessarily regional (but I guess if you only pay for one TSN, perhaps you only get one of the channels). Let me know if you can confirm.

I look forward to seeing how much amateur content the TSN channels will present or even if one of the channels may become an amateur sports specialist like Sportsnet ONE seems to be (see below for all the amateur content SN1 is showing this week).
