On CTV and TSN2, the new NFL season kicks off on Sunday, Sept. 12 at 1 p.m. ET with a full slate of marquee NFL match-ups. This weekend’s games on CTV and TSN2 are as follows:

• Cincinnati @ New England – airing on CTV HD West, CTV British Columbia, CTV Saskatchewan, CTV Winnipeg, CTV Northern Ontario, CTV Ottawa, CTV Montreal and CTV Atlantic

• Miami @ Buffalo – airing on CTV HD East, CTV Toronto and CTV Southwestern Ontario

• Carolina @ New York Giants – airing on CTV Alberta and TSN2

I wonder, will Rogers simsub CTV-W HD over Seattle-CBS-HD for the [email protected] game?

Cant find what Citytv is doing at 4pm, but I would wager its [email protected] with Sportsnet picking up the scraps from the other 4 pm games. (if theres no baseball?)

So glad to see NFL is back and in full force. For the Saints - Vikings opening game yesterday the average overnight rating was 17.7 with a 28% share for NBC (per NFL Network). I have to wait a week and a half now until my Saints play their next game. :(

I was mostly watching tennis but I tried to watch some NFL. But almost every time I put it on they were at a commercial. :rolleyes:

Horrendous simsubbing for the buf-mia game, especially at 4pm.

Simsub was dropped automatically (I guess assuming tennis was supposed to kick in), but this froze the CBS feed, and missed a good minute of the LAST minute of the game. BIG TIME error.

And isnt FOX now doing all letterboxing? Citytv's Foxs SD simsub was just plain weird, things look cut off, and when Fox went to show stats, higlights, etc, it was really cut off bad.

And now with the citytv sub dropped, Fox buffalo is picking up extra Stl-Ari coverage, and its letterboxed. So citytv screwed up?

Not technically simsubbing... but Sportsnet East is missing commerical breaks something fierce...

The reason FOX looks messed up is because only the score bug and FOX Sports logo are 4x3 safe. The normal in game graphics still use the full 16 x 9 screen, so when the Canadian channel chops down the sides to get it 4x3, those are lost... funny because in the preseason even the score bug and FOX logo were all outside the 4x3 safe zone.
