RDS History, Coverage, Features
Reseau des Sports is a French-language specialty channel broadcasted in Canada. It is partially owned by Bell Media and ESPN, and it specializes in live broadcasts of sporting events and sport-related shows. The network’s name translates to The Sports Network, which is the name of its English-speaking “sister” channel, TSN.
RDS was launched on September 1, 1989 on a very limited budget, which made it complicated for the network to secure broadcasting rights in its early days. Years later, the network secured broadcasting rights to the extinct Montreal Expos (MLB), the Montreal Impact (MLS) and the Montreal Alouettes. RDS is frequently named as a major influence in Canadian football’s rise in popularity during the early 90s due to their broadcast efforts. During the late 90s, RDS was acquired by a consortium named NetStar Communications, which was comprised by Bell Media (80%) and ESPN (20%).
In the early 2000s, both RDS and TSN shaped their logos in a similar style as ESPN. During those years, RDS broadcast some historic live events such as the final game for the Montreal Expos before they moved to Washington. Other relevant broadcasts aired by RDS include Montreal Canadiens’ games, Ultimate Fighting Championship fights, NBA matches, and more.
RDS can mostly be found on HD, but a standard feed is also available on select carriers.
