TSN Radio, along with a few radio stations that aren't TSN, had all the CFL games for free on their websites last year.

If your like me and go to a lot of the games and don't want to spend money on TSN's TV channels (I get the daily TV pass here and there) the free online radio broadcasts are great.

I'm hoping the league and union can settle their differences so the season starts on time...

Going to the games, instead of subscribing to TSN for seven months, surely is more expensive, no?

It's more expensive, but why pay for TSN full-time if I'm going to more than half my team's games in person? The daily pass is great, or for the same price I can go watch at a local bar and get some wings for the way out of town games I don't travel to.

TSN daily pass is $5. I am not sure that I can get a portion of chicken wings for that price, not to mention drinks.

On a separate note, is there any information whether any of the CFL games will be in 4k?

I think you can expect all the games to be 4K. They mentioned 4K in last year's pre-season announcement and haven't said anything since, but I think all the games were on TSN's 4K schedule. You can check it in a week or 2.

Last year 4K games were limited to Toronto and Hamilton Home games.

When it comes to humility, I am the greatest!

I found this post in last year's CFL thread. I could be wrong about every game being in 4K, but a lot of them were.

I assume they will add more for the rest of the season. Curious to see what the trucks look like (I'll be at both the June 13th game in Hamilton and the June 22nd game in Toronto).

I'll try and bribe Matthew Scianitti with some Converse shoes to show me around...

TSN4K schedule seems to be updated 1 month at a time recently.

FYI - Dome 4K trucks article from 2016:

Can't wait...hopefully TSN doesn't flip around the Saskatchewan @ Hamilton game tonight on multiple channels when the Raptors game starts - If you are recording the game, I assume you'll have to set your PVR to multiple channels to catch the whole game. The game start has also been moved to 7pm - which is going to be rough for some Roughrider fans to catch locally...and a pain for me to try to get to the game on time.

If people are going to watch Football, they will be like me and watch Football - people who like Basketball will watch Basketball...I don't understand moving game times for another league/sport when the games will still overlap.

The Ti-Cats are also showing the NBA game for free after the football game, and letting anyone in the stadium to watch...going to be a traffic nightmare or blessing...not sure yet...

I'm also not sure if TSN pressured the CFL to move this game...it is the opening game, and CFL fans will still watch the CFL...
