WTSN (Women's Sports Television)

Celebrating the achievements of women in sport while showcasing, encouraging and aiding in the development of a healthy, sporting lifestyle.

Website: www.wtsn.ca

Owner: Sports Network Inc. (NetStar)
Extra Data: The network ceased operations on September 30, 2003 due to lack of expected growth, limited ad revenue and the high cost of running a sports service.

TSN did not immediately surrender the channel's licence, and filed an intervention in January 2005 with the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) against a proposed licence amendment for Fox Sports World Canada that may have impacted on WTSN's mandate. Media analysts therefore considered it possible that the channel might have relaunched at a later date if economic conditions were found to be more favourable. The licence was eventually revoked at the company's request on December 19, 2006.
