It looks like that on March 1 at 6 am estern time talktv will sign off and be replaced with the "MTV is Coming" promo. Currenty program info only goes to March 9 which lists the promo restarting every hour until after March 9 (No I'm not saying the launch will occur at March 10.If I had to guess I would say late March or early April.) I assume it will be the same few segments looping over and over similar to the previous launch of MTV Canada. If anybody else remembers they showed the same 5 videos over and over for a month.
I don't know if this intrests anybody but rumour has it that MTV.ca will offer the Canadian version of the broadband video channel Overdrive. I can hear the endless promos now..."to see exclusive scenes log onto overdrive.mtv.ca"
Does Rogers still list Talk TV programming in the IPG? I have StarChoice and it says MTV is coming! I have no idea if the channel is playing regular programming still or if it is now just playing promos.
By the way, Rogers carries Talk-TV as Basic in Toronto, so the new MTV Canada will be on Basic, while Muchmusic is in a Pay Tier. MTV will technically be available in more homes than MM at least on Rogers in Toronto.
In Vancouver & most of the lower mainland BOTH ARE ON BASIC!!!
Location: Winnipeg with MTS Ultimate TV, MTS Lightning 25 & VOIP Phone Service.
Just to note too, channel 81 call letters have been changed to MTV now, but the program listings are still there for what is on the channel, whereas our TV listings channel (channel 54) is showing like Star Choice and says MTV is coming all the time now.
