Why pay for the license for the Fox name when they will share no similar programming come August (except for Europa League, maybe)? If anything wait and reach a deal with Al Jazeera to become beIN Sports Canada. Will probably carry a lot more weight for what the channel will air in a few months.
That way they could keep Ligue 1 rights, plus if they gained rights to Serie A, La Liga or Europa League, they could rely on Al Jazeera's productions around the world.
Shaw isn't responsible for anyone carrying EWS, except themselves I suppose. That is up to Corus and Telelatino.
