CNN/SI aimed to provide the most comprehensive sports news service on television, including news from around the country and around the world.


What led to CNN/SI's demise was that it had the misfortune of being born about the same time as all-sports news rivals ESPNEWS and Fox Sports Net's National Sports Report. Though CNN/SI could boast of exclusives such as the tape of Indiana University player Neil Reed appearing to be choked by former coach Bob Knight, the channel reached about only 20 million homes, not enough to receive a rating by Nielsen Media Research, which was a killer with sponsors. ESPNEWS benefited from the leverage ESPN (86.5 million homes) has with cable operators. In contrast, news channel parent CNN didn't have the same clout with cable operators for its all-sports news channel.
