Canadian 24-hour sports channel which debuted in 1984. Percentage of it was purchased by ESPN in 1995 after the Canadian government, in their protectionist infinite wisdom, revoked the American network's entry into the Canadian TV market. (After all, everyone knows the biggest cultural threat to Canada is the NCAA). Gradually since, all graphics, logos and names have been styled in the ESPN format - i.e. "Sportscentre" with Canadian spelling. The essential result is a network which devotes 90% of its time to hockey and curling while using exciting teases and graphics. Only notable upside is simulcasting of some ESPN programming.
