NFL Canadian TV Guide: Week 8

NFL LogoDespite the four regional TSN feeds being available, CTV will have the $im$ub for Sunday’s 9:30am game live from London. No doubt this will be devastating news to fans of Question Period, the weird religious programs that air at such an ungodly hour of the weekend, and whatever crazy paid programming screens at 6am on the west coast. TSN2 has a 1pm and 4pm double header which means that it could possibly result in viewers missing part of the second game if it runs late or goes to overtime.

NFL Canadian TV Guide: Week 2

NFL LogoLast week saw Bell’s channels only broadcast a single late game. This week, the 1pm slot has its turn, with only two choices available on CTV across the country. Everyone except the unfortunately souls in Toronto and Kitchener get Pats-Vikings. The Bills will be simsubbed into Southern Ontario. With TSN showing CFL and NASCAR, there is only one choice for those without timeshifting channels despite Bell’s promises of two games each week in each slot. The late slot brings a couple more options with the majority getting Jets-Packers on CTV. Tonight also marks the first night of Thursday Night Football on CBS which is simsubbed on City but weirdly, also being shown on Sportsnet. Enjoy.

NFL on Canadian TV for 2014-15

NFL LogoWith Rogers splashing out and buying hockey rights, they either didn’t have the money or the screen time (or maybe both) to continue showing the Sunday 4pm NFL games. Bell Media has gladly come in and swept up those games, and between CTV and TSN, they’ll have coverage of Sunday afternoon, Sunday night and Monday night NFL action, as well as all the playoff and Super Bowl games. Sportsnet continues to hold rights to Thursday Night Football and the Thanksgiving Day games, at least until 2016. With the new TSN deal this season, subscribers will be able to watch NFL action on their laptops, devices and such via TSN GO and CTV GO.

Thursday/Saturday night
With the exception of tonight’s game on NBC, this season marks the beginning of CBS screening and producing Thursday night football with Jim Nantz and Phil Simms calling the action. Pre-game, half-time, and post-game coverage will feature NFL Network talent. In Canada, Sportsnet will continue to show TNF on one of their channels every week, but for the first eight games of the season you can see the game on CBS also, as well as a Saturday night double-header in week 16. The remaining games will be on the NFL Network in the US, which is blacked out here. UPDATE: Thanks to a commenter below, it appears City will be showing the Thursday night game as well as Sportsnet. Gotta capitalize on that simsubbing, I guess, and maybe City doesn’t have the strongest Thursday night primetime lineup?

Sunday Afternoon
With the new Bell deal, viewers will see two games in their market in the 1pm and 4pm time slots on CTV and/or TSN most weeks. I emphasize most weeks as this weekend will be one of those exceptions, as there will only be one game available nationwide on CTV due to TSN, despite having five feeds now, having no space for a 4pm (US Open and CFL commitments). Not a good start if Bell are looking to convince viewers TSN is still “Canada’s sports leader”. TSN’s original press release mentioned using CTV2 for games, so I’m not sure why they aren’t utilizing that this weekend.

One downside it seems to this new deal is CTV will no longer show overflow coverage of late-finishing or overtime games as they will have to cut to the 4pm game. This also means that if the game CTV is showing goes to OT, viewers may miss the beginning of the 4pm game.

Of course, CBS and Fox will have their assortment of games each Sunday, but expect a majority of games to be simsubbed when possible. If you have the time shifting option, you will obviously see a lot more games each Sunday on CTV and the American networks. For fan’s of ESPN’s Sunday NFL Countodown, it will return to TSN from 10am Sunday mornings.

Sunday Night
Football Night in America and Sunday Night Football will wrap up Sunday’s action with NBC’s fantastic pre-game show and game coverage with the familiar faces and voices of Bob Costas, Al Michaels, and Cris Collingsworth. For those loyal to Canadian TV commercials, you’ll find this also on TSN.

Monday
TSN’s Monday NFL coverage starts at 2pm with ESPN’s NFL Primetime, followed by the always-annoying Chris Berman on Monday Night Countdown at 6:30pm which leads into Monday Night Football at 8pm with Mike Tirico and Jon Gruden. The exception is week 1 with Countdown starting at 5pm and leading into the double-header of Giants-Lions and Chargers-Cardinals.

NFL RedZone

According to various reports, NFL RedZone is no longer available to Canadian viewers as it is no longer being offered by the NFL outside of the US. That said, there is conflicting information as some providers still have it listed on their websites, while others have notified customers it definitely isn’t available anymore. NFL Sunday Ticket continues to be available and should be on free preview during week 1. UPDATE: As pointed out in the comment section, NFL RedZone is available for online viewing if you order NFL Game Pass. UPDATE 2: Bell has confirmed Red Zone will be available for their subscribers this season. Not sure why the change, especially considering they sent out letters informing people it wouldn’t be available. I suggest you contact your provider to make sure they definitely have it.

For French-language, TVA Sports will have the Thursday (except tonight) and Saturday night games with RDS covering games on Sunday and Monday (plus tonight’s season opener).

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

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.
