Unless you’re one of the handful of CFL fans in the U.S. with high-definition equipment and Dish Network’s VOOM WorldSport HD channel, one game per week is completely blacked out. You can’t even get the standard-definition version on DirecTV, AmericaOne, or your regional sports network.
How is this supposed to benefit CFL fans in the U.S.?!?!
Here’s how the Friday Night Blackouts break down by team:
Winnipeg - 7 games unavailable
BC - 6 games unavailable
Edmonton - 6 games unavailable
Calgary - 5 games unavailable
Hamilton - 4 games unavailable
Montreal - 4 games unavailable
Saskatchewan - 4 games unavailable
Toronto - 4 games unavailable
I’m a Blue Bomber fan with DirecTV, and this arrangement blacks out nearly 40% of the games.
This really stinks!!!
