RDS Info is a Canadian French language Category A digital cable specialty channel. It is a 24-hour sports news channel owned by CTV Specialty Television Inc., a division of Bell Media (80%) and ESPN (20%).

The channel was launched on October 21, 2004 under the name Réseau Info-Sports (or RIS)[1]

On January 23, 2012, RIS launched a high definition feed and rebranded as "RDS Info".[2]


RDS Info operates on a rotating 30 minute news wheel of sports scores, news and highlights, along with a ticker containing current sports news and scores which remains on-screen during most programming, a format similar to ESPNews.

Before the launch of RDS2, RDS Info also served as a secondary feed for sister network RDS, airing alternate programming that could not be aired on the main network, such as National Hockey League regular season and playoff games, Monday Night Football, and other events. It continues to act as a tertiary outlet for RDS programming in the event of multiple schedule conflicts.
