It gives the sports fan quick and complete access to all sports news when he or she wants it,” said Gerry Frappier, President of RDS.
RIS will broadcast sports news bulletins in 30-minute loops that are updated continuously. The coverage provided will be among the most complete and will include international, national and regional professional and amateur sports.
