TSN.ca relaunches, celebrates traffic milestones
TSN, which has a new online look in time for the NHL playoffs, took yesterday's relaunch announcement as an opportunity to share some traffic stats.
TSN has relaunched TSN.ca and timed the move with the NHL playoffs. The new look features five applications, a cleaner design, bolder images and easier navigation. It’s the fourth major redesign and the eighth relaunch since TSN.ca debuted in 1995.
Today, TSN.ca attracts an average of 4.9 million unique visitors and 90 million page views per month – more than double the monthly traffic of other English Canadian sports broadcasters’ websites.
The net has added interactive video and more user-generated content in the ‘Your Call’ section. Users can vote for the best video submissions and share video comments on social networking websites. Last month, Your Call recorded 2.4 million page views. The site also has a live scoreboard, an in-game tracker set for debut with the playoffs and an embedded video player.
