TSN announced today that its highly-anticipated expanded package of five national feeds will debut across Canada on Monday, Aug. 25 - delivering more sports, more choice, and #MoreTSN to Canadian sports fans than ever before.

Optimized to give Canadians the most extensive selection of sports programming on television, TSN's suite of five national channels - branded TSN1, TSN2, TSN3, TSN4 and TSN5 - will deliver a slate of expanded programming, including the ability to schedule key programming to serve multiple time zones.

TSN's five national feeds will be available to subscribers on the first day of the U.S. Open, broadcasting an unprecedented amount of live coverage of the final tennis Grand Slam of the season, including more of Milos Raonic and Genie Bouchard following their historic run at Wimbledon last month.
