TORONTO (October 28, 2014) – It’s the return of #WeTheNorth. Coming off their red-hot division-winning performance that swept the nation, the Toronto Raptors return to TSN beginning Oct. 29. As the team’s official broadcaster, TSN delivers 47 regular season games – more Raptors games than any other broadcaster in the country.

Throughout the Raptors’ 2014-15 campaign, TSN provides extensive coverage of the team across its broadcast, radio, and digital platforms.

Television coverage tips off with the Raptors’ season opener against the Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday, Oct. 29 at 7:30 p.m. ET on TSN2, TSN3, TSN4, and TSN5 (see below for complete broadcast schedule). The network’s live coverage of the Raptors is also available live and on demand to TSN subscribers via TSN GO.

“Fans across the nation demonstrated a passion for the Toronto Raptors last year like never before,” said Shawn Redmond, Vice-President of Programming and Marketing, TSN. “We join the rest of Canadian basketball fans in welcoming the Raptors back to TSN after their wildly entertaining last season.”

TSN’s Raptors broadcast package includes every game against:

  • LeBron James and the new-look Cleveland Cavaliers
  • Canadian superstar Andrew Wiggins and the Minnesota Timberwolves
  • Reigning NBA champion San Antonio Spurs

Calling all Raptors games are Matt Devlin and TSN Basketball Insider Jack “The Coach” Armstrong, while TSN’s Rod Black hosts game coverage alongside analyst Leo Rautins in the TSN Studio and on-site at the Air Canada Centre.

Last year, the Raptors’ First Round NBA PLAYOFFS series against the Brooklyn Nets on TSN attracted a total reach audience of 6 million unique viewers through the first four games*.

TSN has broadcast Toronto Raptors basketball since the 1997-98 season.

TSN’s television coverage of the Raptors is complemented by live radio coverage on TSN Radio 1050 in Toronto (see below for complete broadcast schedule).  Throughout the 2014-15 season, TSN 1050 broadcasts 39 regular season Toronto Raptors games live on AM 1050 in Toronto, on TSN.ca and via TSN GO.
