The Sports Network (TSN) is a Canadian English language sports specialty service. Established by the Labatt Brewing Company in 1984 as part of the first group of Canadian specialty cable channels, since 2001, it has been majority-owned by communications conglomerate Bell Canada (presently through its broadcasting subsidiary Bell Media) with a minority stake held by ESPN Inc. via a 20% share in the Bell Media subsidiary CTV Specialty Television. It is the largest specialty channel in Canada in terms of gross revenue, with a total of $400.4 million in revenue in 2013.

It’s flagship news program is SportsCentre, a sports news program airing several times throughout the day. Formerly known as Sportsdesk, it was revamped to closer resemble ESPN’s own SportsCenter (including the use of its theme music, logo, and opening) in the Fall of 2001 as part of a corporate restructuring, closer aligning itself with minority owner ESPN. In 2006, a new studio was built in order to prepare the show for its transition to high definition – becoming the first daily news program in Canada to be produced in HD beginning on September 25, 2006. Other original programs on this channel include the daily hockey news program That’s Hockey, the talk show Off the Record with Michael Landsberg, the automotive newsmagazine Motoring, and TSN The Reporters.

In connection with ESPN’s minority ownership in this channel, the network has a long-term agreement with ESPN International for the Canadian rights to ESPN original and studio programs, including Pardon the Interruption, Around the Horn, Sunday NFL Countdown, NFL Live, Baseball Tonight, ESPN FC, and ESPN Films documentaries including the 30 for 30 series, among others, though it does not always air these programs simultaneously with their U.S. broadcasts.

Along with its coverage of Canadian events, it also airs coverage of international sporting events (primarily American), often simulcast from other broadcasters. This channel also currently airs Formula One and NASCAR racing events. TSN2 carries a weekly early NFL game (to compliment sister terrestrial network CTV’s other regional games), NBC Sunday Night Football and Monday Night Football. TSN also carries some of ESPN’s NFL analysis and highlight programs, including NFL Live, Sunday NFL Countdown, and Monday Night Countdown. In December 2013, Bell Media and the NFL agreed on a multi-year extension of their broadcast partnership which will see more NFL games on TSN, including the Sunday 1pm and 4pm et regular season games. It also currently serves as the main Canadian outlet for TNT’s NBA coverage, along with exclusive Canadian rights to the NBA Finals.

It is a major broadcaster of ice hockey in Canada. From 1987 to 1998, and again from 2002 to 2014, It held national cable rights to broadcast the NHL in Canada. Under its most recent contract, it aired regular season games on week nights and Sundays, including exclusivity on Wednesday nights, as well as various Stanley Cup Playoffs games, as the league’s secondary rights holder after CBC Sports. Its most recent contract expired at the end of the 2013–14 NHL season (following the 2014 NHL Draft); Rogers Communications (owners of Sportsnet) secured a twelve-year contract for sole national rights beginning with the following season. TSN’s then-parent company CTVglobemedia attempted to strike a similar exclusive deal in 2006 ($1.4 billion over ten years), but was not successful. CTV acquired the rights to The Hockey Theme, which has been the theme song of Hockey Night in Canada for 40 years, after the CBC decided not to renew its rights to the theme song in June 2008 amid a legal dispute with its composer, Dolores Claman. A re-orchestrated version of the tune has been used for hockey broadcasts on TSN and RDS since fall 2008
