As the CFL moves to digital formats, it’s not just the CFL’s games that are changing.
It’s also the way they are being consumed.
The league is also considering the possibility of switching the games it produces to digital as well.
As part of its strategy to adapt to changing consumer expectations, the league is looking at how to bring digital games to as many of its games as possible, including its on-field action.
“We have had a lot of discussion with our teams and coaches and with the players, and we are working to develop a digital-only strategy,” said Mike Ouellette, the CFL president and CEO.
“I’m confident that we will get the coaches on board as well, but we are looking at the players and the coaches. “
We will see what the marketplace looks like as we move forward.” “

The league has had a digital strategy for a long time.
It was introduced in the 1990s to meet the demand of new video-on-demand services like Netflix.
It now operates in 16 territories across Canada.
In the United States, it is also offering its games to more than 25,000 viewers on PlayStation Vue, which is available in the U.S. and Canada.
The new digital strategy will be part of the league’s efforts to remain relevant and innovative in a rapidly changing marketplace, Ouellett said.
As digital gaming becomes a more popular and mainstream option, it will also impact the way the league deals with its games, said Chris Mims, a senior vice-president for CFL operations.
“It’s about making sure that our games are available to the fans and to the players,” he said.
“And if the players are not happy with the content, they will have a say in what they’re seeing.”
The changes to the games can affect how they are played and how the players view them.
For example, the current game between the Ottawa Redblacks and Winnipeg Blue Bombers on Saturday night will not be played on the old-fashioned Canadian Football Association format because the league has changed its game format from the old CFA to the CFL Digital Game.
Instead, the new game will be played with a CFL digital broadcast.
The players will also have to watch the replay.
“If they want to watch it, they’ll have to re-watch it,” Mims said.
The same is true for the Winnipeg Blue Bomber-Ottawa Redblackers game at BMO Field on Sunday, which will be broadcast using a digital game format.
It will be the first time in CFL history that a regular-season game will have to be played using a CFL game format, but Mims believes the format will help ease some of the stress that players face in the past.
“We are not going to be able to have a regular season game that is played in the same way,” he explained.
“That’s a challenge, and it’s a problem.
It really changes the way players look at the game.”
The CFL has had two previous games on digital format: the 2002 Grey Cup, which featured an all-digital presentation, and the 2007 Grey Cup.
The teams played a series of regular-year games using the old CFL format, and a lot has changed in the CFL since then.
In 2002, there was no CFL digital presentation.
The 2013 Grey Cup featured an All-Canadian presentation and the 2011 Grey Cup was streamed on mobile devices, and many fans thought that the old format was a bad idea.
“The format has been a success,” said Mims.
“But it’s been a problem for us.”
There are some positives for the league to take from the new format.
“For a lot, we’re still using the same game plan and the same team as we used for 2002, 2003 and 2006,” said Ouellet.
“Our broadcast partners and our fans have embraced the digital format.
They are satisfied with the way we handle our games.” “
When we look at how we do our games and what we do to make them look good on a digital screen, the fans are happy with our broadcast.
They are satisfied with the way we handle our games.”
It is important to note that the CFL has not made a formal announcement yet about what it will do about the on-the-field games.
The CFL’s players have been vocal about their support for the format.
Mims noted that the league still has some work to do to convince players and fans that the format is a good fit for the game.
“Players have a lot to learn about how to play on the field,” said the CFL chief
