Timewasting: AFTN’s Must See Football TV In 2015

Not coming soon to a television screen near you, AFTN brings you another new season of must see football TV. Vancouver’s cable station of the imagination.

The 2012, 2013 and 2014 shows went down well, got the ratings and fell on the right side of the bubble watch, but the TV industry is so demanding that we had to come up with a whole new schedule for the remainder of 2014 and into 2015. Have any of your favourites made it back?
