MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(CCNMatthews - Jan. 31, 2006) - The Canadian Football League unveiled today its 2006 broadcast schedule and all games this season will be televised, meaning that all of the Alouettes' regular season games will be available in both official languages on radio and television.

RDS has already been broadcasting every Alouettes' game for several years now; for the first time in team history, all games will be broadcast in English, either on TSN or on CBC. TSN and RDS will air an Alouettes' pre-season game for the first time, as the Alouettes take on the Ottawa Renegades at St. Mary's Huskies Stadium in Halifax, Saturday, June 3, 2006.

CBC and RDS will air every playoff game, both Scotiabank Division Championships and of course the 94th Grey Cup game scheduled for Nov. 19 at Winnipeg.

Excluding the playoffs, 19 Alouettes' games will be broadcast on RDS, 13 on TSN and six on CBC.

Please find the game schedule attached.
