Fantasy Sports Network is launching today (Sept. 1) on Rogers Cable in Canada, available in free preview until Oct. 31 and, after that, on the cable provider's Super Sports Pak, Extra Sports Pack and Sports Theme Pack packages, and as a separate purchase. It can be found on channel 499 in high definition and also is on the standard-definition lineup. Programming includes studio and call-in shows to inform fantasy-sports players.
“Our distribution on Rogers, combined with our presence on other systems across the country, now significantly expands FNTSY Sports Network to having a truly national footprint in Canada,” Leonard Asper, CEO of Anthem Sports & Entertainment Corp, said in a release. “With football season right around the corner, the demand for 24/7 innovative fantasy sports coverage is greater than ever. We’re answering the call with expert-driven, relevant and timely content that will engage viewers year round.”
Anthem's combat-sports focused Fight Network is already on Rogers on channel 475 (HD) and 427 (SD).
