Question Which network will carry "Wynnona Earp"?

Anyone know if this series will be carried on shaw cable in the west ? CHCH apparently has the Canadian rights but i don't believe they are on shaw .Syfy in the states is showing it but space has no listing .

As far as i can tell shaw cable in the west does not carry CHCH so that does not help me answer the question .

So you can't stream CHCH from their site?

No, CHCH only streams live news.

It's interesting (and seemingly silly) that the series is a canadian/usa co- production and has canadian distribution but only in the east unless telus carries chch in the west .

Telus doesn't carry CHCH either. Only way to get it in the west is on satellite. That article says CHCH.com will stream it, so while they only stream news right now, maybe that won't be the case after April 1? The website for it on CHCH.com lists their own logo alongside Syfy's and the Bell Fund logo, so it seems like they are partially funding it as original content for that channel.

For the westerners in Manitoba, CHCH HD is channel 1261 on MTS TV.

It looks like CHCH will be experimenting with streaming for this show. I wish them luck since they don't seem to be able to get carriage out west. This probably also marks a transition to a greater dependence on airing new shows.

CHCH did have live streaming before but the site for it is now not working.

One of the financing partners for the series is Bell fund and Bell satellite carries CHCH so that's probably why the only carriage at least for the first run is through them .CHCH on bell satellite is on 218 .I'm sure that the series will show on one of Bells other stations such as Space for the second run (It premieres on SYFY in the states)

The Bell Fund participates in a lot of non-Bell programs for Family channel, Global and HGTV (Shaw Media), CBC/SRC, etc.

I did a quick check and CHCH is carried on Rogers, Eastlink and Bell Aliant FibreOP in Atlantic Canada as well as Sasktel, MTS and the satellite companies, but they obviously focus on Ontario. According to their media kit, their "weekly reach" is:

Total Ontario: 3.5 million
Rest Of Canada: 642,000
Total Canada: 4.1 million

The TV Junkies article has been updated:
Quote:
The network will stream episodes live on its website simultaneously with the SyFy and CHCH broadcasts. That means fans can watch the live stream on Friday at 10 p.m. EST with the SyFy broadcast, and then it’ll be available again on Monday at 9 p.m. EST with the CHCH broadcast.

I would have thought it was a natural to assume Space would carry this show. I do see it in my guide for CHCH next Monday.
