Watch AFL on TSN and TSN2
Aug 6, 2009
The AFL has partnered up with ESPN to provide live and replay coverage of AFL games in North America! With TSN and TSN2 slated to televise at least one live or delayed match per week in Canada. Previous broadcaster Setanta did not renew their rights to broadcast AFL in North America allowing ESPN to step in as the AFL’s new partner in the North American market.
"The AFL's agreement with ESPN in the U.S. and Canada follows last week's confirmation that the league had secured ESPN as its broadcast rights partner in the UK and Ireland...."
"AFL Chief Operating Officer Gillon McLachlan said, "We are extremely pleased that ESPN will be working with us in the United States and Canada. They are a global leader in multimedia sports entertainment and the collaboration will ensure our expanding supporter base in the U.S. and Canada enjoy the highest standards in live AFL broadcast coverage going forward."
"Coverage will begin Friday, August 7 live in the U.S. and on delay Saturday, August 8 in Canada, with the Round 19 clash between finals aspirants Carlton and Geelong from the MCG."
