Leading Canadian Sports broadcaster taps ‘nimble and creative’ Enterprise sQ

Over the last 15 years, Sportsnet has risen to become one of Canada’s leading sports media operations. The Sportsnet and Sportsnet One TV channels are complemented by Sportsnet Radio, Sportsnet Magazine and its premium international sports channel, Sportsnet World. In May 2013, parent company Rogers Media also acquired Score Media, owner of The Score Television Network, further extending its reach in the sports broadcasting market. For the last five years, Sportsnet has been relying on a SAM Enterprise sQ system for all its production needs. Over this period, the system has not only handled Sportsnet’s full workload, but also accommodated a doubling of operational requirements.
