HDNET Programming Discussion for Canadian Viewers NO NHL discussion

Now that it appears that ExpressVu is airing HDNET, this thread is to discuss the actual programming.

If you have questions about HDNET, see these threadsPosts asking about whether your provider has HD etc will result in short term banning!

This thread is ONLY to discuss the actual programming!

Canadian HDNet 7 day schedule:

Remove any scripted tv series or sports and what you have left is the BEV hdnet schedule

I don't see anything in CCTA's HDNET "licence granting decision" that would require HDNET to alter their programming schedule

http://www.crtc.gc.ca/archive/ENG/No.../pb2006-75.htm


.... other than that #20 really surprised me:

"20. The CCTA strongly disagreed with parties, such as the CBC, who suggested that it is premature to consider the addition of non-Canadian HD services. The CCTA submitted that such a delay would not be in the public interest. It also stated that to ask consumers to forego an existing service dedicated to true HD content until Canadian specialty services are ready to make a comparable investment in a 24-hour HD service would be unfair to viewers who have made the substantial investment in HD television sets and related equipment."

It is not the CRTC, but broadcast rights in Canada.
Look at SPIKE TV's schedule. They blackout 007 movies in Canada, because they don't own the CDN distribution rights, and they show MXC instead. I think Global (DejaView) owns Hogon's Heroes in Canada for example.

When it comes to humility, I am the greatest!

CRTC is not the copyright watchdog.
Broadcasters should take care of that. Lawsuits will fly if they don't.

agreed.
I just wanted to reiterate that it is not CRTA's fault if HDNET was to start blacking out things. People tend to blame CRTC for everything (most of it well deserved).

in this case CRTC is not limiting HDNET in any way (as far as I can tell)

Maybe the guide data was incorrect when it was on Bell since they knew it was a test and didnt bother doing the data as should have been. For the time it was on it was the same as the schedule on the hdnet site.

I could be wrong, but I thought hd copyrights and sd copyrights were separate. I can't see DejaView having hd copyright for Hogan's Heroes.

But the issue is rights to air specific programming in Canada. Sports events, and movies, are usually subject to territorial exhibition rights. This is not a CRTC issue; it's the deal struck by HDNet with various leagues and studios. Canadian rights for many properties have already been sold to Canadian broadasters. HDNet, to honour its contract, must either put up a blank screen or program something else when these conflicts occur.

agreed re: regional broadcasting rights.
I'm guessing you have not read the follow up posts as you'd understand my point better and wouldn't writing the same thing as two other people ;-)

Hogan looks good in HD.

Anything can have rights attached to them.

hogans heros was one of my favorites growing up and yes he does look good in hd, just can't imagine another network not letting hdnet broadcast the show in canada, if they are indeed banned from showing these so called exclusives along with hockey etc. etc., bev better not want extra cash cause can't imagine many shelling out

There is announcement somewhere else in DHC that Dan Rather is doing a "Dan Rather Reports" week-daily program on HD.net? Is this a Canadian version or the straight forward American version, I am getting Bell in November.
