Bad cess to the CBC for screwing around with the schedule already (Friday).

Instead of France-Senegal live at 7 a.m. and on tape at 7 p.m. EDT, as the published schedule said (and still does, dammit), they pre-empted the 7 p.m. game for some hockey game or other :rolleyes: and instead showed the tape delay at 3:30 p.m. EDT (and I believe even earlier in some other time zones).

As a result, people who decided to forgo watching the live telecast in favour of catching it in prime time came home from work to find they'd missed the repeat broadcast.

Luckily, I wasn't one of them, but there must be thousands whose interest was piqued by news of the result of the game, who decided to watch it in replay.

Now they have to wait till Saturday at 10:00 a.m. to watch it on TSN, assuming they know about it.

Flash! Update! Now TSN is screwing with their schedule, and they plan to show the France game at 11:30 p.m. EDT/ 8:30 p.m.PDT Friday night as well as 10:00 a.m. EDT Saturday

Well, here it is June 10 and we still don't know what game CBC will show on June 11 at 3:30 p.m., at least not from the CBC website or the online TV listings.

CBC is also keeping a secret of its one-hour "World Cup Highlights" package shown every day sometime after midnight.

For your information, here are the EDT times of the next few Highlights broadcasts:

Tuesday June 11 1:30 a.m.
Wednesday June 12 12:30 a.m.
Thursday June 13 1:30 a.m.
Friday June 14 1:50 a.m.
