*RIP* Gord Downie of The Tragically Hip Past Away

It was announced today that The Hip Frontman Gord Downie past away in his sleep from Brain Cancer last nite. This is sad. As a kid I really enjoyed listening to "The Hip" on the radio and TV. If it wasn't for our conventional Radio and TV Broadcast system I would have never known about The Hip nor listened to their music but I do and I'm damn proud I am a fan of theirs

By coincidence, CBC announced this a few days ago:

GORD DOWNIE'S SECRET PATH IN CONCERT TO PREMIERE SUNDAY, OCTOBER 22 ON CBC - CBC Media Centre

Filmed at Roy Thomson Hall in Toronto on October 21, 2016, GORD DOWNIE’S SECRET PATH IN CONCERT will make its broadcast premiere on Sunday, October 22 at 9 p.m. (9:30 NT) on CBC and will also stream at cbc.ca/arts/secretpath, commemorating the 51st anniversary of Chanie Wenjack’s death.



Just a reminder that CTV will show The Tragically Hip Tour Documentary LONG TIME RUNNING on Sunday, November 12 at 8 p.m. ET. The commercial-free theatrical version begins streaming on CraveTV on Monday, November 13.

I am waiting for the program guide to update so I can set my PVR as I will be out of town that day.

I would suggest a manual recording.

Calgary, Vancouver and Toronto schedules (local time)
7 PM Marvel's Inhumans
8 PM Long Time Running
9:38 PM COURAGE | IN MEMORY OF GORD

From zap2it:
COURAGE: IN MEMORY OF GORD
Footage of interviews with rock band The Tragically Hip in tribute to musician Gord Downie.
9:38 - 10:00 PM

CTV.ca/schedule shows the program runs past 10 PM, so I would add extra time.

ok but everywhere just advertises the "START" time, which is 8 O'Clock in the Centre of the Universe aka Toronto, no one is advertizing the "RUN" time anywhere, so its hard to do a manual recording you kinda need that info, too.

Bell's press release in post 3 says the 95-minute film will run commercial-free and that is confirmed by Zap2it. The length of the program "COURAGE: IN MEMORY OF GORD" that runs afterward isn't clear. Zap2it says it ends at 10, but CTV.ca/schedule says it ends sometime after 10. You can use your own judgement if you want to record that as well.

UPDATE: CTV Confirms Live Stream for LONG TIME RUNNING - Bell Media
Quote:
CTV confirms today that all Canadians with access to the internet will have the opportunity to watch LONG TIME RUNNING tonight when it has its commercial-free world television premiere at 8 p.m. ET/MT.

In addition to the CTV broadcast, the film is available in a free live stream on CTV.ca and in the CTV GO app, beginning at 8 p.m. ET/MT.

Immediately following the LONG TIME RUNNING broadcast, CTV presents Courage | In Memory of Gord, a 20-minute tribute piece comprised of archived Much interviews with Gord Downie and The Tragically Hip from throughout the years. The special will also stream on CTV.ca and in the CTV GO app.
Courage | In Memory of Gord is 20 minutes, so the entire special will wrap up at 10 PM to allow Blue Bloods to start at it's normal time.
