2012 TSN Curling broadcast schedule

Great news for Canadian curling fans that TSN signed a new long term deal with the Canadian Curling Association to expand coverage of top curling events on the network through 2020. As part of the deal TSN will be the exclusive rights holder for Season of Champion events like the Tim Hortons Brier and the Scotties Tournament of Hearts.

Check out this page for a full listing of 2012 curling broadcasts on TSN and TSN2.

This is an important deal for all involved:

“The Canadian Curling Association is absolutely delighted to be announcing that our partnership with TSN has not only been extended, but also further enhanced for the long-term. This is one of the most significant items that the CCA has been able to achieve in our recent history,” said Greg Stremlaw, Chief Executive Officer, CCA. “This exclusive broadcast partnership with TSN, and now RDS, has provided an exceptional opportunity to further expose our sport to both existing and potential curling enthusiasts across Canada; grow our already significant programming hours; and ensure comprehensive broadcast stability for the next decade. The fact that approximately 250 hours of Season of Champions coverage will also be shown on French- language television is a wonderful success story for curling.”

It’s great to see curling become a cornerstone sport in TSN’s lineup. It should provide Canadian curling fans the breadth and consistency of coverage they have come to expect.

The Scotties gets going from Feb 18-26th, 2012.

Meanwhile the Brier is back in Saskatoon this year and happens Mar 3-11th, 2012.

  • I love watching curling, however, I am not sure of the players names and cities they represent. On the board they say the ‘skips’ names and that is all of the info stated. Could you please send me a listing of the teams & names of the ones that are on TV, example ‘Kevin Martin’ etc. Thanks, Mary.

  • Good morning. I don’t know who to contact about my problem. I am delighted that TSN is the voice of curling, they are the best! However, I am watching the Scotties from Red Deer and I am so sick of the repeated advertising every game, every day. I know that these spots are very expensive to put together, but surely each segment could have an alternate so that watchers wouldn’t be bored to death and ready to slam something through the TV!!!!!

  • Why must Glen Howard be the featured game most of the time on TSN curling? And with his brother Russ Howard commenting, it is no fun to watch, I am sure people are interested in knowing and watching other teams. Please feature all teams and not just Howard team? I could understand it if he was the prior Brier winner, but he is not.

  • I am disappointed that the time allocated for the gold medal game was allocated to 20:00 hrs., at 19:45 hrs the curling time was done with for other sports highlites. They never continued to see and hear the Swiss anthem being played for the Gold medal world champions, after all it was a World tournament. Also one other game of curling was over a half hour late starting because of colledge basketball which was not a playoff , why did they not switch that game to the computer. Also not everyone has a computer. We that like curling and we have lots in Canada that do see very few curling games through out the season. I hope things change at least a little in the future for curling on TV.
