What is sntv?

sntv delivers the world's leading sport to global media organisations. It provides the most important events in the sporting calendar, while providing aggressive newsgathering and original journalism to break sports news stories.

The emphasis is on providing a service of a higher quality and more comprehensive nature than any other sports news provider.

Why should I subscribe to sntv?

sntv is the world's leading sports news video agency, providing highlights and breaking video news 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year. Its sole aim is to be the first to provide media organisations with top quality footage of the sports news of the day.
With IMG Media as one of its parent companies, sntv has unequalled news access to top sports. Over the years sntv has developed relationships with all of the major rightsholders to enable coverage of the most prestigious global sports or events. Where possible sntv has cleared rights centrally although occasionally customers will need to clear access with local rightsholders.

For newsgathering outside of the main events, sntv has access to AP's worldwide bureaux enabling sntv to get staff and cameras in place for breaking news stories. sntv also has access to IMG's offices around the globe and crews insitu at relevant sporting events.

sntv's crews are present at all major sporting events such as the Olympic Games, World Cup, Grand Slam tennis events and major golf tournaments.
