CBS Sports Network has a base presence and compared to the others, quite a small presence on cable.
There is also some content via a presence via free Pluto TV as well as I have to also wonder, and it would make great business sense, to simply simulcast the games on Paramount+ just like almost all other content on the CBS Sports Network cable or on CBS proper.
The latter is already done via Paramount+ for UEFA Champions League soccer and for various other sports on CBS.
I’m thrilled that the CFL chose the network partner in the US that makes the most sense and with a genuine interest in exposing the games and not sidelining them with poor publicity like those increasingly worthless and antiquated dolts at Disney and ESPN.
Or just simulcast to Pluto TV or Paramount+, which they do already for other CBS sports content, unlike NBC and Disney / ESPN when they marginalize content to only cable or only Peacock or only ESPN+ as if it is still cable TV 2018 when it was already well on the slide.
@montypython In the 3downnation article above, you’ll see that John Hodge reports the money to be $100,000 to $200,000. That’s not included in the cfl.ca article.
Although not much money and 34 not being many games, it’s CBS who can be trusted to present our games well (although I don’t think Pat Summerall and Tom Brookshier will be doing play-by-play and colour) but it’s still C-B-BLOODY-S who some of us think is pretty top rate.
