Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment

Raptors NBA TV

Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment, owners of the Toronto Raptors basketball team, were granted a licence in November 2000 for a cable specialty channel, then called the Raptors Basketball Channel, which planned to include panel and phone-in shows, player profiles, statistics and analysis, and historical material about the Raptors and other teams. The channel was specifically prohibited from providing any live coverage of professional basketball games.
