Category C Services
A Category C service is the former term for a Canadian discretionary specialty channel which, as defined by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission, provides a national news or mainstream sports service. This designation applies to specialty services which operate under the "conditions of license for competitive Canadian specialty services operating in the genres of mainstream sports and national news".[1] Under previous policies, these services were intentionally unprotected from competition by other Category B services of the same genre, but are still "protected" from competition by other discretionary services. In other words, if someone wants to launch a competing service, they must do so by committing to the same obligations, including common requirements for the exhibition and funding of Canadian-produced programming, as others

CNN Headline News
HLN is an American cable television in the United States news channel owned by CNN. The channel primarily carries a schedule of news programming during the daytime hours, with the remainder of its schedule dedicated to true crime programs drawn largely from the library of sister network Court TV, as well as new original programs within the genre. The channel originally launched in 1982 as CNN2, a spin-off of CNN. Its original format featured a cycle of regularly updated segments at thirty-minute intervals twenty-four hours a day, briefly covering various areas of interest, such as news broadcasting, sports journalism, infotainment, weather forecasting, and business journalism. Shortly after launching, the network was rebranded as Headline News and later, CNN Headline News.

Timeshift Channel
A timeshift channel is a television channel carrying a time-delayed rebroadcast of its "parent" channel's programming. This channel runs alongside their parent: the term "timeshift" does not refer to a network broadcasting at a later time to reflect a local time zone, unless the parent is also available. Often the timeshift channel's branding and advertising will be the same as that of the parent, with the channel number and respective timing being the only distinction between the two, but some, such as Channel 4 +1 in the United Kingdom and TVNZ 1+1 in New Zealand, will overlay a different digital on-screen graphic to distinguish the two channels. A few channels, like Film4 +1 in the United Kingdom, do not carry a digital on-screen graphic on its regular channel or its timeshift channel. In the United Kingdom, most timeshift channels have a time delay of one hour, and are thus described as a +1 channel – for instance, ITV2 has a timeshift channel known as ITV2 +1

Sports Broadcasting
The broadcasting of sports events (also known as a sportscast) is the live coverage of sports as a television program, on radio, and other broadcasting media. It usually involves one or more sports commentators describing the events as they happen. Broadcasting of sports started with descriptions of play sent via telegraph in the 1890s. In 1896, a telegraph line was connected to the Victoria Rink in Montreal to update fans in Winnipeg of the Stanley Cup challenge series between Montreal and Winnipeg ice hockey teams. In 1923, the first radio broadcast of an ice hockey game took place on 8 February, with the broadcast of the third period of a game between Midland and North Toronto of the Ontario Hockey Association.[1] Later that month, the first full-game broadcast took place in Winnipeg
