OneSoccer began as a streaming service but seeks to extend its reach by getting its live coverage on major cable systems. In a filing with the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission, it alleged Rogers is refusing to carry it because it competes with the Rogers-owned Sportsnet channels—and sometimes outperforms them, as when the Canadian men’s team was pushing to qualify for the World Cup. If Rogers concludes its buyout of Shaw, whose cable component the CRTC has already approved, the lack of competition will be even worse, OneSoccer asserted. (The Globe and Mail)
