Bernie Ecclestone founded ISC in July 1982.[1] In 1996 ISC signed a 14-year agreement with the FIA for the exclusive broadcasting rights for 18 FIA championships. In early 2000 the ISC/FIA agreement was modified to reduce the number of rights packages to two, the World Rally and Regional Rally Championships. In April 2000 Ecclestone sold ISC to a group led by David Richards.[2] In October 2007, North One Television purchased ISC.[3]

In June 2001, Simon Long joined International Sportsworld Communicators as Sales Director before later being promoted to Media Director. In June 2003 Simon was appointed to the position of CEO of ISC replacing William Morrison.[citation needed]. In February 2010 ISC was renamed North One Sports.[4]
