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.
