TSN, RDS claim first with OTT day pass, slash monthly cost

Canadian pay-television sports broadcasters TSN and RDS have introduced what they claim is the country’s first 24-hour streaming subscription option, along with cutting the monthly cost of their OTT platforms.

The new TSN Direct and RDS Direct Day Pass launched yesterday (Monday) for C$4.99 (€3.3/$3.7). The networks also confirmed a new lower price of C$19.99 for their monthly streaming subscriptions, down from C$24.95 when the services launched in June 2018.

TSN Direct features access to TSN’s five English-language feeds, on-demand content, and exclusive bonus streams. RDS Direct delivers French-language content from RDS, RDS2, and RDS Info.
