CBS Sports Network (CBS SN) has unveiled its U.S. broadcast schedule for the 2023 CFL season. The league struck a deal with the network in April worth a reported $1 million after previously partnering with ESPN.

“The CFL is an exciting brand of football, with a great history that has long included some of the stars of the game,” said Dan Weinberg, CBS Sports executive vice president of programming, at the time. “We are excited for the CFL to join our robust line-up of live events on CBS Sports Network and we look forward to showcasing the current generation of CFL stars.”

CBS SN will carry 34 of a possible 86 games in the U.S., while the remaining 52 will be carried exclusively on CFL+, the league’s new American streaming service. The service is free for users and will carry the postseason, including the 110th Grey Cup.

The major U.S. network has already started promoting the upcoming season with legendary commentator Jim Nantz plugging the season-opener on a PGA Tour broadcast this past weekend.
