"This has been a dream of ours for more than three years, and our passion for sports has had us work hard to build the type of sports channel we that we would take great pleasure in watching ourselves.

"We are so pleased to be offering free sports for Kiwis and are committed to acquiring sports programmes and content that Kiwis want to watch." Reeves said more announcement on content are expected soon.
