Major League Soccer has announced their MLS Canadian TV details for the upcoming season.
The Sports Network (TSN) and Reseau des sports (RDS) are both set to feature a plethora of top flight MLS matches throughout the 2023 campaign.
Two Canadian networks share MLS workload
TSN handles the English-language broadcasts of MLS matches featuring Canadian clubs. RDS, on the other hand, airs these select games in French.
Each north of the border channel broadcasts at least one game from the league each week. Along with regularly featuring Canadian clubs, these two networks also air select American team fixtures as well.
Select playoff and cup games also available in Canada
In addition to regular season MLS games, playoff matches, MLS Cup, and Leagues Cup fixtures are also available on TSN/RDS.
As of now, eight playoff and MLS Cup games are set to air on the Canadian networks. TSN also broadcasts 16 Leagues Cup matches during 2023. RDS is set to air seven of these games as well.
Along with the select fixtures being available on TSN and RDS, Canadian soccer fans can catch every match on MLS Season Pass.
Apple TV previously announced a 10-year partnership with MLS to stream every match of the top flight. MLS Season Pass, found on the Apple TV app, can be accessed for $14.99 per month (or $99 per year).

MLS Canadian TV: Canada’s trio of MLS teams
MLS currently has three Canadian teams in their top flight. Toronto FC was the first Canadian club to join the league in 2007.
The Vancouver Whitecaps then followed suit four years later. Finally, Montreal CF transitioned from the NASL to MLS in 2012.
All three Canadian clubs begin their 2023 MLS season on Saturday, February 25th. Toronto FC start the slate with a matchup against D.C. United at 7:30 PM (ET) on TSN. CF Montreal also play Inter Miami during the same time slot, with that game being available on both TSN and RDS.
Vancouver then host Real Salt Lake at 10:30PM (ET) on TSN and RDS2 to finish out a packed day of MLS matches.
