HGTV, TLC, MTV, Discovery, Food Network (?), E all have the same names as U.S. counterparts. Canadian TV companies buy rights to the name and then buy enough of the same programming to make it convincing. There was once an MSNBC Canada, Canwest had the name rights to Fox News. Fox Sports World and OLN were licenced from U.S. networks of the same names, but the U.S. versions now have new names. I'm sure there's more. Why there's even a BBC Canada.
