TORONTO (May 23, 2024) – The Canadian Football League (CFL) is hitting the airwaves like never before, and fans throughout Canada, across the United States, and around the world are invited to tune in.

TSN and RDS continue their long-standing relationship with the league as Canada’s home of the CFL, featuring in-depth coverage and analysis from the fan-favourite CFL ON TSN panel. In the U.S., CBS Sports Network, the 24-hour home of CBS Sports, will exclusively deliver 34 games to American audiences.

First introduced in 2023, CFL+ is the league’s premiere streaming platform for content not otherwise available on TSN, RDS or CBS Sports Network, including preseason games, regular season contests, playoffs, the Grey Cup and other league events, such as the Canadian Football Hall of Fame induction, the CFL Awards, media coverage of Grey Cup Week and more. The service is free with the provision of an email address.

New this season, every game carried on CFL+ will be available on-demand for 48 hours with full DVR functionality after the final whistle, providing viewers from around the world with an extended window to tune into CFL action. The platform has also been upgraded for compatibility with Apple AirPlay to facilitate casting onto smart TVs more easily.

The season kicks off on Thursday, June 6 with the defending champion Montreal Alouettes visiting the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in a Grey Cup rematch.
