CFL returns to ESPN networks

ESPN will open its Canadian Football League schedule with four games on its TV networks this week. ESPN networks have 13 regular-season games scheduled through August 13, with more to be announced later. The networks will also carry the CFL playoffs and Grey Cup championship in the fall.
Montreal Alouettes night games can be heard on CKGM (690-AM) in the Hudson Valley. All games are available on the TuneIn radio app.
The CFL schedule on ESPN:

Here are the games not yet assigned – you can bet ESPN3 will air most of these with so many college football conflicts on Fridays and Saturdays. I wouldn’t be surprised to see ESPN2 or ESPNews carry some of the Sunday fall games as counter programming to the NFL.
