Here at Rogers, we are passionate about sports. When we announced the recent acquisition of Maple Leafs Sports and Entertainment,you could feel the excitement all around the office and whether I’m in the elevator or walking past colleagues’ desks, people always seem to be buzzing about what’s happening on the field, on the ice, on the court, and so on.
That’s why we’re pretty excited to tell you about today’s launch of Sportsnews, a new sports cable service at no additional cost for Rogers digital cable customers. It’s the channel you flip to for your real-time sports fix. It’s the first cable service of its kind in Canada. Head over to channel 999 to check it out (available in SD or HD).
Here’s a quick rundown of what you can expect to see on Sportsnews:
- Large scoreboard (one-third of the screen) with scores, including pre and post-game notes and in play scores and stats.
- Twitter feed streaming from your favourite Sportsnet personalities.
- The headline zone featuring breaking news and fun trivia facts.
Pulling in real-time scores, stats, breaking news and fantasy info, means there’s always something interesting for avid sports enthusiasts. Especially with the NHL All-Star Weekend around the corner, can’t wait to see how my favourite players stack up in the skills competition and how they’ll perform in the All-Star Game. Pretty sweet I can get those updates while I’m channel surfing or working out.
Will you be tuning into Sportsnews?
