Friends don't let friends watch the Bills..

I didn't get Sunday Ticket this year and its programming decisions like CTV's that make me regret it at times.

I don't see how you can consider this a bad decision. The game is taking place in Toronto and both Toronto and SW Ontario get Bills games often. Just be glad it isn't at 4:00 because it would probably be on all City stations and Sportsnet East.

I guess this is rights issue since CTV Montreal gets Patriots @ Browns from CBS.

However, I can not help that the schedule is rather strange that day. Usually both CBS and Fox air one game each at 13:00 and at 16:00 either one of them continue with its double-header. For 07 November CBS has the double-header and Fox the single one. However, Fox Burlington will air its single game at 16:00 instead of the usual 13:00 making the Bill game not available.

It usually works that way because the single-header network schedules the best game at 1:00. This week the best game on Fox is at 4:00 because it is in Seattle. Of course when I say "the best game", I mean the best game for the Burlington market.

You are right, now I see that it is the best game for that market. And it is not as much as Seattle as it is the away game for New York Giants. Fox Burlington serves Vermont, part of New Hampshire, Northern New York and Southern Quebec.
