Réseau Info-Sports (often referred to as RIS or RIS Info Sports), is a Canadian French language category 1 digital cable specialty channel. It is a 24 hour sports news channel owned by CTV Speciality Television Inc; a division of CTVglobemedia (80%) and ESPN (20%).

Programming

RIS operates on a rotating 30 minute news wheel of sports scores, news and highlights. All programming contains a continuous on-screen ticker of current sports scores and news. It could be considered a French language version of ESPNews. As a result, the on-screen ticker is the same size as ESPNews, and remains on screen throughout most commercials.

In addition to sports news, the network also shows some live sports action, serving as a spill-over station of sorts for RDS. Live programming includes National Hockey League regular season and playoff games, Monday Night Football, and other events.
