Bell Media Extend and Expand Canadian NFL Rights: All Sunday Games on CTV and TSN

with 11 comments

Quick hit as I’m swamped at work: As alluded to late last week, Bell Media confirmed today that TSN and CTV have agreed with the NFL to broadcast all Sunday NFL games, taking away the 4pm package of games from the Rogers-owned Sportsnet and City networks. Each market  will get two games at 1pm and 4pm, via TSN, TSN2, CTV and CTV2. Bell continues to hold the rights for Sunday Night Football (TSN), Monday Night Football (TSN) and the playoffs and Super Bowl (CTV). Sportsnet has the Thursday night /Thanksgiving Day games locked up until 2016. At first glance, I’d say in a normal week you’d get one game on CTV and one on TSN. In weeks where TSN is showing CFL and NASCAR (for example), you’d see two games on CTV and CTV. Feel free to dissect in the comments.

Press release below. Read the rest of this entry »

NFL Canadian TV Guide: Week 13 (Thanksgiving Thursday)

with 14 comments

NFL Logo

American Thanksgiving marks that special time of year where we can enjoy three (mediocre) games of football on a boring  Canadian Thursday. This week also brings us the recent and terrible tradition of the Buffalo Bills playing at the Rogers Centre in Toronto.

In regards to the latter, NFL fans in the east of Canada, who usually get the City TV game on Sportsnet East will unfortunately be stuck watching the shitty Bills take on the even shittier Atlanta Falcons instead of the game of the week, the two teams with the best record in the league, Denver and Kansas City. I hope you guys get an CBS affiliate who is showing the game on your television device.

NFL LogoJudging on the win-loss records listed below, there is potential for a lot of crappy football this weekend. Naturally, CTV decides this is the weekend they would rather make extra money by simsubbing everything instead of showing potential good games (i.e., Eagles/Packers and Lions/Bears). Maybe though I’m just a Packers fan who is pissed that I’ll have to find a web stream instead of beautiful HD. Anywho…

There will be errors. I had to quickly whip this up this morning before I fly out to ye olde UK for the weekend (and no, it’s not to watch the 49’ers / Jags in London, but if I’m in the neighborhood, I may swing by) so this means two things: 1) I’m almost certain I’ve probably missed a network or screwed something up, and 2) I won’t be able to make an edits to fix said mistakes or late changes. As always though, I can depend on you readers of ye blog to post either of the above corrections in the comments below.

The only major thing to note for this weeks games is that tonights game (Thursday) will be on Sportsnet 360 due to MLB playoffs and regional hockey. Sportsnet states SN360 is currently in free preview for the month of October, so I guess everyone should be able to see it. That said,  I always presumed 360 / The Score was in all basic cable packages.

NFL Canadian TV Guide: Week 5

with 17 comments

UPDATE: Sportsnet One online schedule is now showing that they are broadcasting the Chargers / Raiders game Sunday night.

The most interesting thing in week five of the NFL (as far as people who read this site are concerned), is who will be showing the rescheduled Chargers at Raiders game late on Sunday night.

Having had to move the game time from a 4pm ET kickoff to an 11:30pm ET one due to the Oakland Athletics playing playoff baseball on Saturday night in the same venue, the originally scheduled CBS game will be screening on the NFL Network in the US. The question though, for us in Canada, is whether it stays on the NFL Network here or whether TSN or Sportsnet will pick up the game.

The game, at its original time of 4pm ET, was never scheduled to be shown on any Canadian network, so neither TSN/CTV nor Sportsnet/City are losing a game by having it moved. The first question is whether Sportsnet has rights to NFL Network games or just the Thursday night game. That said, if Sportsnet were to pick up the game, it won’t be on their regional channels as they will be showing the two MLB NLDS games that night. SN 360 has nothing exciting showing, while SN1 is showing an Indycar replay.  If TSN got the game, it would flow-on nicely after their weekly Sunday night game on TSN. With TSN2 showing filler programming, it could be used either for overlap or the whole game.

But for now, with nothing announced, we can only presume Canadians will be able to see the game on the NFL Network. I will update this post should anything change.
