Industry Recognition

Impact of NHL Lockout
Audiences on TSN were down slightly in the Fall due to the lack of NHL programming on TSN. Fortunately the depth and breadth of TSN's broadcast schedule allowed the network to capitalize on additional programming opportunities that drove audiences for viewers and advertisers. Even without NHL games, TSN delivered a strong fall schedule that included NASCAR Sprint for the Cup, NFL Monday and Sunday night games, and CFL playoff games. TSN complemented its schedule with new programming that included expanded coverage of the MLS Playoffs, CANADA CUP OF CURLING, VANIER CUP, NCAA Football, and ESPN programming, including prime time broadcasts of the acclaimed 30 For 30 documentary series.
