MTS Scores a Hat Trick with Three New TSN Channels
Winnipeg Jets™ coverage now included as part of MTS TV basic package
WINNIPEG, MB, August 18, 2014 – (TSX:MBT) MTS, Manitoba’s leading full-service telecommunications provider, today announced that it will carry TSN’s expanded line-up of five national feeds: TSN1, TSN2, TSN3, TSN4 and TSN5. With this expansion, Winnipeg Jets™ games will now appear on TSN3 and be included in MTS TV’s Basic Service channel group.
“At MTS, we understand how much Manitobans love their Winnipeg Jets,” said Paul Norris, Vice President of Brand & Consumer Marketing for MTS. “With even more great sports programming included in MTS’s basic channel package, Jets fans will be able to watch more than 60 games – home and away – without paying a separate fee.”
TSN3 will appear in standard definition on Channel 22 for MTS Ultimate TV and Classic TV subscribers, and high definition on Channel 1022 for MTS Ultimate TV subscribers. MTS Digital Cable subscribers can also catch the hockey action on Channel 6.

Audio Control To Gain The Advantage in Battle
August 14, 2014, Milpitas CA, USA – Tesoro Technology USA Inc., a manufacturer of high-tech gaming products, today releases the Kυνέη.pro true 5.1 surround sound gaming headset. With a total of 8 drivers (4 in each ear cup) and fully customizable control of every channel, the Kυνέη.pro immerses the player into the battlefield by providing realistic, directional audio.
Gain the Tactical Advantage
Named after the helmet of the Greek god of the underworld, Hades, the Kυνέη allowed its wearer to turn invisible to gain the tactical advantage in battle. Much like the mythological Kυνέη, the Kυνέη.pro allows its wearers to gain the advantage over their enemies by letting gamers pinpoint enemy movements, such as footsteps, before the enemy sees them.
Customizable Audio Control
Each ear cup of the Kυνέη.pro contains 1 subwoofer, 1 center speaker, 1 front speaker, and one rear speaker, to truly provide directional sound. Each channel (Voice / Front / Rear/ Cen. / Sub.) can be customized via the removable in-line control. The controller also allows gamers to instantly turn off the microphone or speaker. Additionally, for those looking for even more, the Kυνέη.pro can be switched to virtual 7.1 surround sound audio mode. The unidirectional noise canceling microphone blocks out distracting noise for crystal clear chatting.
The Tesoro logo embroidered headband with a leather lining is adjustable to fit any size. Both the headband and ear cups are padded with memory foam for a comfortable and personal fit. The ear cups can be folded in, for easy and safe transport when heading out to LAN parties or gaming competitions.
Stylish aluminum plates with a laser cut Tesoro face line the sides of the Kυνέη.pro. The eye of the Tesoro face as well as the in-line control feature purple LED illumination.
Price and Availability
The Tesoro Kυνέη.pro will be available at the end of August for USD 109 at Tesoro Gaming USA, Newegg, Amazon, NCIX.
