WEEK ZERO, BABY!!!

I wonder if TSN will finally improve their coverage and show all ESPN-produced games on TSN GO?

I highly doubt that TSN's coverage will improve. Looking at next Saturday, they seem to only have games on TSN2 which would mean they aren't carrying what they could carry. It would be nice if they could carry some of the FS1 games too.

I doubt they will ever carry FS1 games. Why they can't put more games on their five channels, though, is perplexing. Are there that many people who don't get all five of the TSN channels anymore?

Sportsnet used to show FS1 games before their "big" NHL deal... as for TSN Go showing more games , Bell satellite has an NCAA sports package which show ESPN games .. so I doubt they will .

I looked at ESPN's schedule for college games for the next month or so and none of them involved big conference match-ups. I wish Bell offered at least the Big Ten network like Cogeco does. Even better would be the SEC network. Even CBS Sports Network which Bell charge, I believe $5.00 a month doesn't show any of the big conference and neither does Bein Sports.

Big Ten Network is also on Shaw Direct. A few years ago there was a Michigan game at Utah that aired on FS1 that BTN aired in Canada. Unfortunately they haven't done anything like that again.

Didn't put up the Week 1 schedule so I am making up for it for putting up the Week 2 schedule: https://bossmansblog.wordpress.com/2...edule-as-well/

OK making up for it is probably a strong phrase considering how good the schedule is (spoiler alert: it's the worst quality week of the college football season).

I miss the days when The Score used to show the Saturday Night SEC ESPN games every week. Now you have to hope and pray TSN2 picks it up as the one NCAA game on Saturday nights. I don't think SEC or ACC networks will come to Canada ever as with the ESPN ownership of TSN they wouldn't want to cannibalize anything. PAC 12 might and B1G is here as it's a FOX network. I wish we got SEC Network though as it's great for Football, Baseball and Basketball. I'm a big Gators fan so I wish I could easily watch their games.

DAZN doesn't have all Pac-12 games though this year for some unknown reason. This past week they didn't have a Friday night match and in Week 1 there were no Thursday night or Saturday afternoon games streamed on DAZN. Jerks.

Finally an option to watch Fox-produced college football broadcasts in Canada. Their pricing seems to be $12.50 a month.

https://www.flofootball.com/articles...co-september-7

Today, FloSports, the innovator in live digital sports and original content and FOX Sports announced a partnership to provide live and on-demand content and coverage internationally of college football and basketball from FOX, FS1, FS2, and BTN through 2021 on FloFootball.com and FloHoops.com. This partnership includes top tier Big Ten, Big 12 and Pac-12 football, as well as Big Ten, Pac-12 and Big East basketball, and additional programming that will be distributed in both Canada and Mexico. Additionally, FloSports will distribute all BTN football and basketball games in Mexico.

Well, Sportsnet promised that they would air FBS games from Fox Sports library. What happened then, instead of airing games from FS1, Sportsnet just aired the games already on Fox, OTA. There was no added values of Sportsnet FBS coverage whatsoever since they were just simulcasting Fox.
