I've had good luck feeding the Manifest URL directly to youtube-dl. The terminal fills with warning messages about invalid DTS/PTS and invalid timestamps as the stream downloads, but the file you get in the end is perfectly good! For example, this worked for me:
```console
$ youtube-dl -o 'CBC - Curling, Feb. 8 - mixed doubles (Draw 4 - CAN vs. FIN).mp4' 'https://dvr-i-cbc.akamaized.net/dvr/701e3ca5-9f3c-4dc4-ac69-f1e2574da38d/701e3ca5-9f3c-4dc4-ac69-f1e2574da38d.ism/QualityLevels(3449984)/Manifest(video,format=m3u8-aapl-v3,audiotrack=english,filter=hls)'
```

You still have to sniff out the Manifest URL yourself, but at least youtube-dl can automatically and correctly assemble the stream using ffmpeg for you. I'm hoping that might be an indicator that this won't be too difficult a site for which to have someone implement an extractor.
