Looks like the Amazon Thursday Night games are staying on CTV2 most likely.
For those too lazy to open the link:
The multi-year, extended agreement includes:

  • THURSDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL regular season games
  • Sunday 1 p.m. ET regular season games
  • Sunday 4 p.m. ET regular season games
  • SUNDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL regular season games
  • MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL regular season games, including the new slate of games produced by ABC
  • NFL RedZone, available every Sunday beginning at 1 p.m. ET, taking football fans inside the 20-yard line with real-time look-ins and highlights, all in one broadcast
  • All International Series Games, including the recently announced game live from Germany
  • All Playoff Games
  • The Super Bowl, the most-watched television event in Canada

Uncertain whether or not Red Zone will be like last year or if they will show it on an actual channel

Having it on a linear channel would mean no 2 minute delay from live as you currently experience it on

Thank God I own an antenna and live close to the U.S. border. Best way to avoid the Bell Media carpetbaggers.
VPN and an Xfinity account is my best weapon! Thank goodness my Florida place has free cable which allows me access to the Xfinity stream app! Got all the networks and ESPN's. Only issue I have is no way around the Amazon games on Bell cause I don't have a US Amazon account.
