The new channels will carry different editions of the sports broadcaster’s flagship evening news show for different time zones, along with programming that includes content from ESPN.
The three new channels – TSN is calling them “feeds,” – will allow the service to air numerous editions of Sportscentre, its nightly flagship sports news show, to serve different time zones. TSN says it will add more college sports programming from ESPN, as well as the U.S. channel’s news and other studio shows.
It is also promising simultaneous coverage of events with multiple matches, such as Grand Slam tennis, and expanded coverage of marquee events such as the FIFA World Cup.
TSN says the new channels will be available on all of the major cable lineups at launch time. But it did not immediately make clear whether subscribers would be asked to pay more for the additions.
