TORONTO — The Canadian Football League (CFL) and content streaming platform, Visaic, are teaming up to deliver the 2022 season to over 130 countries and territories around the globe. Single-game and multi-game packages will include all regular season and post-season games en route to the 109th Grey Cup in Saskatchewan on November 20.
I like the notion of steaming around the globe. Many Canadian's live / work abroad example our military, some would enjoy the CFL. This most likely came about because of single game betting. Curious I wonder if the PA was aware of this revenue stream last week, hope they get a few pennies from streaming.
Funny many years ago CFL tried PPV that went over like a lead balloon lost a lot of fans back then but times are different now. People can watch on their phones anywhere.
All the CFL broadcasts around the world use the TSN video feed and hear the same announcers. This would include Yare, ESPN in the US, and BT Sport in the UK. CFL also had/has a deal in Mexico as well, but I believe they might only air one condensed game per week.
This CFL collaboration with Yaretv is also not new. They began working together in late 2016 for the playoffs and then in 2017 for full season coverage.
The CFL ain't going back to Mexico. No CFL team drafted a Mexican player from this year's global draft. No Canadian payer played in the LFA because of the shoddy treatment some players got in the country
Seems like I am not making myself clear. Since Visaic bought Daretv in 2020, they are the same company. That is why I am saying there is nothing new about this announcement. In fact, this is the 5th year of their partnership.
If we compare the availability of the international streaming service when they first started in 2017 as compared to today in 2022, you will notice that the CFL actually had more tv deals 5 years ago.
