A name is just a name. CTV got nothing on Sky. Just look up SKY branding makes CTV look pail in comparison. Almost every single channel Sky owns has SKY in front of it.
SKY Sports channels
SKY movie channels
SKY News channels

Given how bare-bones and cheap these new brands are, you could probably rope Book Television and Fashion Television into this mess for just a full day's pay.
Their lineups scream CTV Drama Channel 2 (CTV2 Drama?) and CTV Drama Channel 3 at the moment

The Comedy Network, Space, Bravo, and Gusto become CTV Comedy Channel, CTV Sci-Fi Channel, CTV Drama Channel, and CTV Life Channel, respectively. People should check their PVR schedules as some TV providers have problems with channel rebrands.
Two new press releases for the rebrand.
The Comedy Network is Now Canada’s #1 Entertainment Specialty Service # # # Bell Media Entertainment Portfolio Charts Record Growth to Close 2018/19 Season
CTV Specialty Fall Programming Addendum

Maybe that's how the CBC explains it today but when the original version was introduced in 1974, a sarcastic writer of the day called it an "exploding grapefruit" in his newspaper article ("The Star?). His description has stuck with me for at least four decades. By the way it has also been called the exploding pizza.

I hear another rebrand will be MCIBUS to CTVBUS. Get ready for it.
Another possibility is a takeover of DigitalHome and rebranding it to CTVHome.
Toronto may become CTVoronto and Canada, CTVanada.

I posted the Bell Media press release in June announcing the Sept. 12 launch date. I just confirmed it here:
"Starting September 12, Space becomes CTV Sci-Fi Channel." https://twitter.com/spacechannel

|ExDilbert||And goodbye all my timers on those channels, not to mention the channel names Canadians have been accustomed to for 25 years. Change, whether it be for change sake, corporate greed, corporate bragging rights or all three is not necessarily good for Canadians.|
