Your NFL on Canadian TV Week 1 Guide

The National Football League endured a circus of an off-season, but we’re going to try and forget all about that as week one action begins tomorrow night on NBC and TSN with Super Bowl/Deflategate champions the New England Patriots hosting the Pittsburgh Steelers.

For the upcoming 2015–16 season, the Canadian broadcasts will remain unchanged from last year. CTV and TSN will show two games each at 1pm and 4pm on Sundays with different games available on different CTV affiliates across the country, no doubt most of them being simulcasts of American networks (enjoy the Bills as usual on CBS folks in Southern Ontario). NBC and TSN will have Sunday Night Football and TSN covers Monday Night Football; Thursday night games (excluding tomorrow night) will be covered on CBS, Sportsnet and/or City; Sportsnet and/or City also have the Thanksgiving Day games; and as usual, TSN and CTV cover all playoffs and the Super Bowl. RDS takes the same timeslots as TSN, TVA Sports covering the same Sportsnet/City games.

  1. Who cares?…..11 minutes of action in a whole 3.5 hours game. Waste of time.

    • Thanks for stopping by.

    • nfl on tv has truly become unwatchable unless there are 3+ games going on at the same time or you watch redzone. Way too many commercials for 11 mins of action that may or may not be entertaining. Plus announcing philosophy is to make all players as American deities when avg career is only about 4 years, about half actually graduate, 25% get arrested, about 1/3 will suffer from mental issues and 75% will incur financial difficulties or be bankrupt in about 5 years after retiring.

  2. Glad I shelled out for NFL Gamepass again, looks like the only way I’ll be able to watch any Detroit Lions games without cable TV (you can laugh now)

  3. Both Monday night games will be on RDS.

    Also, you wrote Kansas City Royals instead of the Chiefs.

  4. Tonight’s game on RDS instead of RDS2 due to the U.S. Open semi-finals postponed due to the rain.

  5. Quick note, Sunday Ticket and Redzone on Free Preview this weekend for most providers
