History

Sportsnet was launched on October 9, 1998 as CTV Sportsnet. The name was chosen to match the regional "Fox Sports Net" operations across the United States. CTV owned 40% and was the managing partner of the new network; Rogers, Molson and Fox owned 20% each. is the 282nd day of the year (283rd in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

When CTV purchased NetStar, the former parent company of TSN, in 2000, the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) ordered CTV that it must sell either CTV Sportsnet or TSN. CTV ultimatly chose to sell Sportsnet, on which the other shareholders had first right of refusal; as Rogers was the only interested party, Rogers acquired the channel from CTV and therefore it was renamed Rogers Sportsnet in 2001. During the transition period, CTV was allowed to control programming on both networks, and some cross-affiliation and programs that were going to be tape-delayed on TSN, most notably figure skating, were given to Sportsnet. Rogers has since acquired the shares of Molson and Fox, but does air some programs from Fox networks, notably including Major League Baseball, though MLB coverage outside of the Blue Jays has not always been the Fox domestic feed. The Sports Network (commonly known as TSN) is a Canadian English language cable television specialty channel and is Canadas leading English language sports television channel. ...

The "Parking Lot"

Until April 30, 2008, both Rogers Sportsnet and its main competitor TSN were based at CTV's studio complex in the Toronto neighbourhood of Agincourt. Sportsnet, originally controlled by CTV prior to its acquisition of TSN in 2000, has been based there from the start and never moved out. Hence, when on-air hosts, such as Darren Dreger, move from one channel to the other, it has been referred to as "crossing the parking lot" or, less commonly, "crossing the street". Some at Sportsnet had complained about feeling like "poor country cousins" to CTV and TSN at Agincourt [1].

This peculiarity has been made light of by a couple of notable hosts on Rogers Sportsnet. Bob McCown, a radio host on Rogers-owned The Fan 590, has constantly commented on his show Prime Time Sports (a simulcast of his radio show on The Fan 590) that Sportsnet executives throw bottles across the street at the TSN studios. In addition, Sportsnet Connected anchor Sean McCormick has openly stated on-air that he drives to work with his wife, Jennifer Hedger, who anchors SportsCentre on TSN.

Sportsnet HD

Sportsnet HD is a high definition simulcast of Rogers Sportsnet. Most of the time, the channel is a mirror of the Ontario feed, but will sometimes simulcast content from one of the other three regions or air completely separate programming. The channel was launched on September 1, 2003. Toronto Blue Jays games make up the majority of Sportsnet's live HD programming, as the team is owned by Rogers and can have its games shown across the country. When High-definition television Blue Jays games are aired, the SD stations currently crop the picture to fullscreen aspect ratio. Prior to the 2007-2008 season, the SD stations would use the widescreen feed with a letterbox for the 4:3 screen. Sportsnet began broadcasting selected Vancouver Canucks, Calgary Flames, Edmonton Oilers, Toronto Maple Leafs and Ottawa Senators hockey games in HD, beginning in the 2007-08 NHL season.
