Where To Watch: 2023 Broadcast information
With the introduction of CFL Preseason Live and CFL+, there is a growing number of viewing options for CFL fans in Canada, the United States and around the world that includes the league’s longstanding partners TSN and RDS and now features CBS Sports Network.

The complete 2023 season broadcast schedule for TSN, RDS, CBS Sports Network and CFL+ will be announced prior to the season kicking off on Thursday, June 8 when the BC Lions travel to McMahon Stadium to visit the Calgary Stampeders.
CFL PRESEASON LIVE
For the first time ever, all non-broadcasted preseason games will be available to stream through CFL Preseason Live to all fans across North America and internationally.
In Canada, three preseason games are exclusively slated for TSN and/or RDS; those broadcasts will be made available outside of Canada on CFL Preseason Live. The online platform will also carry the six remaining contests for all viewers. The CFL will work together with the host club of each game to broadcast the in-stadium video feed, while play-by-play and analysis will be provided by local crews.
