2016 CFL Draft on TSN

2016 CFL Draft on TSN

[b][i]The league announced Wednesday that the draft will also take place starting at 7 p.m. Eastern this coming Tuesday (May 10), and that the first hour of the draft will be aired on TSN2 and RDS2 (with subsequent rounds airing on TSN Go)

On the broadcast side, this draft will be the third straight one in the evening, and the second-straight one on TSN2/RDS2. The evening draft is likely better for the CFL rather than the previous noon Eastern start, as many potential viewers will be at home rather than at work (it's still a 4 p.m. start for those on the West Coast). However, the challenge is that evening TV time is more valuable to networks: televising only the first hour (with the remainder streamed) certainly isn't ideal, and having this on TSN2 rather than the main TSN network also isn't ideal, but both are understandable moves, as the main TSN network is carrying a NBA playoff game (Hawks-Cavaliers) that will probably draw more viewers.[/i][/b]

For those interested and frustrated with TSN draft coverage , Ticats tv is live streaming 2 hours of the draft on ticats.ca.

Im looking forward to it. This is a deep draft. Cant wait to watch it.

I have all five tsns and tsn go. Should just stream it on the website too if they arent

I don't know if they've changed their broadcast ideas since originally publishing tsn2, but it looks as though the draft will air on all but tsn2. Which is great.

I suspect that is becausse originally they had NBA Game 5 Cavs vs Hawks scheduled on some of the TSN channels for 7:00PM - but the Cavs won in four straight games.

Logical

I have it PVR’d for the main TSN channel? I’m okay right? Sometimes stations have a show “advertised” but plays something else entirely. I’ve been burned by it a few times, not so much for sports but you know… Better safe.

Could not find a Ticats tv link on their website. Instead after a search, I found a livestream link.

TSN pathetic attempt to show the draft one round really? And not much commentary on the player being selected. I have seen more action at a hog sale.
