2017 North American TV Coverage Is Still Up In The Air

(Ed note: 3/23/17 7:00 PM EDT. We have added almost all known schedule listings to our TV schedules page. We still await the official announcement from the AFL and Fox Sports. TSN did issue a press release today.
3/22/17 9:15 PM EDT. We have now confirmed the round 1 schedules with all parties. We also will be adding Round 2 to 5 for Fox to the schedules page in the next 24 hrs. However, we understand that contractual issues remain between Fox and the AFL. 
3/22/17 4:00 PM EDT. We have posted the schedule info we have so far on our TV schedules page but nothing has been officially confirmed by the AFL, Fox Sports, or TSN. We anticipate an announcement in the next 24 to 36 hrs. More will follow as available.)

With a little over two weeks until the 2017 AFL season kicks off, the league and its North American broadcast television partners are still in the process of negotiating television rights for the 2017 season and beyond. The AFL is hopeful that the deal is finalized before the Round 1 opener of Carlton v Richmond on March 23rd.  This applies to both US and Canada.

While AFANA understands this is not ideal, we are encouraged that the parties involved are still negotiating and are hopeful that an agreement can be reached quickly. None of the parties has indicated that any specific problem is the cause of the delay and we discourage fans from uninformed speculation. While the delay is of concern, we do not suggest fans take any action at this time.

All games will still be streamed on WatchAFL Global to subscribers, regardless of the current broadcast television situation.

Australian Rules Football Television Coverage in 2020

We have full schedules at our AFL TV schedules page.
We have weekly radio listings for the AFL at our AFL Radio page

(9/20/20): We will have schedules for the AFL finals as soon as the AFL releases them and Fox and TSN add matches to their schedules. This is likely late this week. There are no matches next weekend. All finals matches will be live on FS1, FS2, and one of the TSN networks including the Grand Final. ESPN coverage has likely concluded for 2020. WatchAFL has announced prices for the finals for online coverage: US$17 per week, US$72 for all 4 weeks, and the annual price remains US$165. Please use our links on this page. We need your support. Schedules, as released so far and on our schedules page, are through Round 18 for ESPN; and on Fox Round 18 (live) / Round 18 (repeats); and Round 18 on TSN Canada. These are the changes in coverage for 2020: There is live coverage on FS1 & FS2 and on all TSN [Canada] networks including multiple live matches. ESPN carries two live games per week on ESPN2/ESPN3 (no repeats) for the rest of 2020 and schedules will be updated as we receive them. The expanded coverage on ESPN, FS1, and FS2 is not guaranteed to continue past the end of this season as the future contract status is not yet known. US repeats are only on FSP. We also have the WatchAFL schedule and WatchAFL carries every game live and on-demand. WatchAFL subscription costs changed as of the start of round 2.

This page will give you the basic facts you need to know about TV Coverage in the USA, Canada, and Mexico in 2019 and is expected to be largely unchanged from late 2018. Information will be updated as necessary throughout the 2019 season. It appears we will get one live game per week on FS2 (rarely on FS1) and three on FSP. This year there is extensive coverage of the AFLW, AFLX, and AFL preseason. Coverage in Canada is unchanged from last year, mostly on TSN2 and occasionally other TSN channels.
