In December 2000, MLSE was granted approval by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) for a category 2 digital specialty channel license tentatively known as Raptors Basketball Channel, a channel described as being devoted primarily to the Toronto Raptors basketball club and the National Basketball Association (NBA), with additional programming related to other aspects of basketball.
The channel was launched on September 7, 2001 under the name Raptors NBA TV, with programming on the NBA and other basketball-related programming, although with a particular emphasis on the Toronto Raptors. On October 15, 2010, the channel was re-named to NBA TV Canada, as the network began to air more programming devoted to the NBA and international basketball in general, much like its American counterpart.
NBA TV Canada broadcasts programming primarily related to the National Basketball Association (NBA), as well as coverage of other basketball leagues including the Euroleague and the WNBA. Programming includes live games during the regular season and playoffs, classic games, the NBA All-Star Game and NBA Finals, and other NBA-related programs. Regular hosts for shows include David Amber, Sherman Hamilton, Matt Devlin, Leo Rautins and Jack Armstrong.
As they share ownership with the team, NBA TV Canada produces all Raptors telecasts, accompanied by elements (such as graphics and studio hosts) provided by the game's respective broadcaster. Game broadcasts are currently split between TSN, TSN2, Rogers Sportsnet, and Sportsnet One. NBA TV Canada airs pre-game programming, and encore presentations of Raptors games ("Raptors Game in An Hour").
