TORONTO (November 3, 2015) Driven by an unforgettable 2015 MLB Postseason and the launch of the 2015-16 NHL season, Sportsnet recorded its best month ever – and the best month ever for a sports TV network in Canada – delivering a 10.3 audience share and an average minute audience of 446,000 viewers (2+) in October. This marks a year-over-year increase of 122%.
Baseball led the way in October, with 21.1 million Canadians watching some part of the 2015 MLB Postseason, and 19.6 million Canadians watching some part of the Blue Jays ALDS and ALCS post-season broadcasts on Sportsnet.
Also in October, Sportsnet was the second most-watched Canadian network (conventional and specialty combined). And, for the third month in a row, Sportsnet was Canada’s highest-ranked specialty channel.
