NEWSnet has apparently quietly launched a sister network: Sports News Highlights


Recommended Posts

I tried to turn into NEWSnet as background noise here in the L.A. wee hours, and the network was apparently moved up in the last couple of days to the main .1 feed of the digital channel (previous position was .7).  However, on a channel rescan, there's also a new network on .10 : Sports News Highlights, which is from the same folks who brought you NEWSnet, with the same graphics and the studio.  This is probably a soft launch of sorts since the ticker doesn't have a website, just an "#SNH" hashtag and the repeated text "This is Sports News Highlights | Your new source for Sports Highlights and News, 24/7."  The NEWSnet website and social accounts have no mention of this new channel, and a search for the #SNH hashtag on Twitter and Instagram turned up nothing relating to the network (unsurprisingly).  I will say that the anchor at least has a decently polished delivery, with the appropriately excitable inflection during highlights.  Some screen pix (gotta love the creative spelling of "Calgary"; NEWSnet's gonna NEWSnet, even on its all-sports sibling).  But, hey, they have a legit sponsor in 5 Hour Energy, apparently.
