I know only a couple of years ago half the regular season CFL games weren't even televised, but that was due to a "lack of knowldege" of the broadcasters, not a lack of interest in the CFL.
The CBC started getting record TV ratings for their Sat. night CFL games in the summer, only a year or two after they had completely shunned the CFL until Sept.
I'm sure the exhibition games would draw at least 250,000 viewers, which is perhaps only half the regular season audience, but comparable to the ratings of NFL Sunday, which CTV has paid big money for. So it should be worth a networks while to televise the preseason.
Wouldn't most fans enjoy watching the road exhibition games next week? Will they be available on broadband??
