There you have it folks, all the channels that are approved or maybe approved someday.
I hope this is what you are looking for SMCKINNON, happy now :)
I don't think most of these channels will see the light of day, but hey that's just my opinion.

saskatoondavid 2005-10-01 04:16 AM

With the exception of maybe reality tv channel and hallmark tv channel in canada similar to US, nothing is appealing on here at all!!! Wasn't Oxygen channel and a few other US imports approved awhile back, but noone has picked them up yet! To not carry more American channels when they are available is F'N Crazy!!!

SMCKINNON24 2005-10-01 03:52 PM

Theat A great list of channels coming./ I wasn't expecting to see that kinda of list. But thanks for posting it.

I will imagaine 90 % of them will be carried by Rogers, as Rogers likes to bring in the most channels in for it's customers.

PlayitSimple 2005-10-01 04:24 PM


Here are the US channels on the approved list that are not currently available (as you will see, I believe its because they would compete with CDN channels):

American Movie Classics (AMC) [rights issues, has commercials so forget about it I say]
C-SPAN [who cares?]
Comedy Central [competes with comedy network]
Lifetime Television [competes with W]
Oxygen Network [competes with W]
Turner Classic Movies (TCM) [rights issues]
TV Land [Time to put it on and fold the CDN version because it sucks!]

I hope someday Boomerang is added to the approved list, but that may take a miracle me thinks!


Glad you like the list, I think we should use it as the de facto list for new channels. I will try and update when something changes (i.e. channel not currently approved is approved or not, approved channel launches, etc.). Hey Hugh, maybe you could put it as a sticky so that its there as a reference for people, just a suggestion.

chris3579 2005-10-01 04:39 PM

i hope one day that NasaTV get's apporved

PlayitSimple 2005-10-19 12:09 PM

The Watcher 2005-10-19 08:48 PM

The Casino & Gambling Channel is on the air 288 in Durham.

james99 2005-10-19 09:10 PM

So tell me, how can this category exist: [2] PENDING (BUT NOT YET APPROVED)?

Those channels may not be approved. Interesting that Discovery HD Theatre is on the list but not HDNET. Any reason?

PlayitSimple 2005-10-19 10:46 PM

The channels on this list are CANADIAN, thus no HD NET. These are all digital channels that companies have applied for a license to operate or to keep American versions out. The pending ones will most likely be approved, this is the CRTC we are talking about. You think they won't approve Teletoon Retro, for example, which would keep Boomerang out or Discovery HD Theatre Canada?? There may be the odd exception but I believe most will be rubber stamped, so to speak and it started today with 3 of the French ones.

Watcher, I am assuming you are referring to Rogers when talking about this channel?

The Watcher 2005-10-19 11:10 PM

Yes, I am referring to Rogers Cable in Oshawa.

Why has no one proposed the "Watch Paint Dry Channel"? :rolleyes:

PlayitSimple 2005-10-20 01:42 PM

Don't give them any ideas :)

ryoung 2005-10-20 02:15 PM

What an incredible list of ... crap.

I'll take HDNET over ALL of those channels (combined).

Zelko 2005-10-20 04:23 PM


Why is Raptors TV HD not part of this list since it has already been approved by the CRTC?
