TSN launches five national channels
Toronto-based sports specialty television channel TSN will launch five national feeds of programming today. The channels, called TSN1, TSN2, TSN3, TSN4 and TSN5, will carry approximately 300 hours of live sports programming per week. TSN is a subsidiary of Bell Media.
"We're thrilled to bring fans more sports and more choice than ever before," said Shawn Redmond, vice-president of programming and marketing at TSN. "This week alone, fans can choose from more than 300 hours of live programming across TSN, and it all starts today, with our new feeds featuring three Canadian tennis players on the first day of the US Open. This is an exciting day for sports fans and an historic day for TSN."
