Sports on digital cable in Canada

According to the Toronto Star (from Nielsen Media Research):

Average viewers per hour for digital sports TV channels between sept 7 2001 and Aug, 2 2002:

1.FXSW 900
2.ESPN Classic Canada 800
3.NHL Network 800
4.WTSN 700
5.Raptors NBA TV 700
6.Xtreme 400
7.Leafs TV 200
8.Racing Network 200

Fox Sports World is Number 1
but later in the aricle they say this about FXSW:
"...likely has little demand...."

It is big article, sorry couldn't find a weblink, I got it from the print version.

Here's the weblink.

This is really not much of a surprise. Digital cable is not cheap as cable TV goes, and there's still plenty to watch on regular cable and TV.

Actually I am not surprised that it is this 'low' but that among those available FXSW is doing the best. Guess that can attributed to them offering something different (ie soccer, rugby,....)
