I currently live in Canada and subscribe to HBO Canada. Apparently, HBO Canada doesn’t have “Real Sports” because it is “exclusive” to the US. I wrote to HBO Canada and this is what a very courteous customer service representative said: "We had many requests for the series after HBO Canada launched, and although I don’t know all the finer details, it seems that “Real Sports” is not allowed in Canada and considered “exclusive” to the U.S. Very strange. As a hardcore boxing fan myself, I would’ve loved to have seen that special as well.
