TSN Adding Second Channel


TSN announced today the launch of its new 24-hour sports digital network, TSN2, which hits Canadian TV airwaves on Friday, Aug. 29 at 7 p.m. ET with a jam-packed lineup featuring 800+ hours of live and exclusive major league sports action. Today's announcement further illustrates TSN's leadership and commitment to delivering marquee sports properties and better serving sports fans from coast to coast.


1) Live Sports – a total of 800+ hours of live sports coverage, with an average of one exclusive live event/game per day, available only on TSN2.

2) Encore Telecasts of Live TSN Programming – TSN2 programming features encore performances of key sports events, which aired live earlier in the day on TSN. For example, European-based sporting events which air live on TSN in the daytime, such as Champions League Soccer and select IIHF tournaments and games, will be repeated later in the day on TSN2.

3) Better Timeslots for Western Canada – TSN2 presents better timeslots for Western-based viewers with alternative showings. Events and programming which air in late-afternoon/early-evening in Eastern Canada on TSN will now be repeated in Western prime.


“By taking the TSN alternate feed to a full-time service in TSN2, we are better positioned to serve sports fans by being able to consistently provide live coverage of two events taking place concurrently. TSN2 is a must-have for sports fans,” said King

Maybe one day, TSN will find it's way onto my Direct TV package.

Ballhype: hype it up!
