Turner Sports (TS) is the division of Turner Broadcasting System responsible for sports broadcasts on Turner channels including TBS, TNT, TruTV, and CNN en Español (for occasional Spanish language simulcasts), and for operating the digital media outlets NCAA.com, NBA.com, PGATour.com and PGA.com. Turner Sports also operates NBA TV on behalf of the NBA.

In August 2012, Turner Sports bought the sports news website Bleacher Report for an estimated $200 million.[2]

In March 2018, Turner Sports announced to launch B/R Live, a subscription video streaming service, featuring live broadcasts of several sports events.[3]

Turner also owned Peachtree TV, the former WTBS, which was the longtime home of Atlanta Braves Baseball. This relationship ended after the 2013 season. Peachtree was itself sold to its operator, Meredith Corporation in 2017.
