Sportsnet Ontario (formerly known as CTV Sportsnet Ontario and Rogers Sportsnet Ontario) is a Canadian regional sports specialty channel owned by Rogers Communications serving most of all Ontario. It is one of four Sportsnet regional feeds.

It is the main television channel of the Toronto Maple Leafs, Toronto Raptors, and the Toronto Blue Jays (although the latter carried nationally).

Originally, Sportsnet operated one national feed that consisted primarily of a simulcast of Sportsnet Ontario, carrying nationally televised events, or separate content from other regional feeds. That feed was launched on September 1, 2003. In 2007, Sportsnet began utilizing a second high-definition feed in order to broadcast select Toronto Maple Leafs and Ottawa Senators hockey games in HD, beginning in the 2007–08 NHL season,[1] activated only in the regions a game is to be televised. On January 26, 2009, the national HD feed was replaced by individual HD feeds for Ontario.
