hercules130 All is good, WCCO aired the game even though they seemed to forget about it themselves. The game was aired only after 15 minutes, after infomercial which they cut and shifted to the game.

Dr.Dave I just remembered this and tuned into WCCO (I'm not an NFL fan.) The game is on, so I checked the WCCO site and TitanTV lists paid programming until the late game starts (obviously wrong.)

Dr.Dave Zap2it now shows New York Jets at New England Patriots and Jacksonville Jaguars at Tennessee Titans on WCCO on Sunday

WCCO's site just shows whatever is listed by TitanTV, which is just another listings service like or Zap2it. TitanTV may be be wrong, although I don't know one way or the other.

hercules130 According to WCCO (CBS Minnesota) own site, they will not have any early NFL game. The same thing is also reflected on and Bell MTS on-screen guide.

magnet From Wikipedia:

As of the 2014 season, these rules do not apply in Week 17, where playoff or draft implications are affected by many games. Because of the nature of Week 17 games with playoff implications, all restrictions except the blackout for failure to sell out games rule are waived, giving Fox and CBS doubleheaders for Week 17 in all markets, regardless of whether the local team is at home

hercules130 I want to reach out to the gentleman who manages, as I do not have Twitter account. The maps for week 17 indicate that there is no exclusion for home team games. That seems to be incorrect. Here in Winnipeg my "local" US affiliates are in Minneapolis. FOX Minneapolis airs Chicago @ Minnesota on Sunday early. Thus, CBS Minneapolis does not air any NFL game at that time while the map show that CBS Minneapolis airs NY Jets @ New England.

mark_42 I used to have Bell as well and switched to Sasktel Max. That only lasted 2 months before I dumped it and went to Shaw Direct. Picture quality of Max is worse then satellite and almost seems as if you are watching internet video. Price is a joke too for what you get.

RyanW 4 morning games missing is not exactly what they promised at the start of the year.
I patiently waited slightly past the half way point of the season to move on from Bell after 17 years. I had hoped they would negotiate something with DAZN to broadcast sunday ticket again. I have sasktel maxtv scheduled for a friday install. They negotiated with DAZN a few weeks back. $99 for the remainder of the season. It also includes use of the DAZN app.

Note: There is a game at 16:25 ET: NE @ OAK in Mexico City. Bell carries it but only on CTV Two so it may not be universally available by Bell in Canada. However, that game is available on many CBS affiliates that most of Canadian viewers get.

Dr.Dave "Cineplex ... will bring Sunday Night Football and the Super Bowl live to Cineplex theatres across Canada."

frenchophile @Inglewood according to the press release it's $5. It's interesting for sure. I wonder what regualr season games they are planning to show? I'm guessing it's the Sunday night game
2017-11-03 03:12 PM
Inglewood Depending on the price, the Cineplex deal interests me.

I've been to other events (WWE) in the past at Cineplex, and adding food/beer to the mix would be interesting if the price is right and the game match-up is good.

Note: There is a game at 16:05 ET: WAS @ SEA. Bell carries it but only on certain CTV Two channels so it may not be universally available in Canada. However, that game is available on FOX Seattle.
