This thread will be used to post the schedules for HBO Canada, The Movie Network and Movie Central.

The Movie Network (TMN) is owned by Bell Media and is only available east of the Ontario/Manitoba border. Movie Central (MC) is owned by Corus and operates in the west. HBO Canada is jointly marketed in conjunction with the respective movie network in each territory.

The schedule for HBO Canada is the same across Canada aside from a time zone adjustment for the east and west feed. Movie content is generally similar on TMN and MC, although there may be some differences for individual shows and daily schedules.

I won't bother posting press releases from Bell and Corus that announce the same thing.

I don't subscribe to the premium movie channels, so I am only generally familiar with the shows and schedules. Contributions from other members are welcome.

There are separate thread for other Corus and Bell Media channels.

While this may sound crass, but I think one notable difference in content between TMN and MC is that MC does not air porno at late night while TMN does through MXS.

movie Central seems to air hardcore porn on Wednesdays and then for some weird reason almost every other night they seem to show edited soft core versions of porno movies

..or the Boob Tube!! :eek:

Is it because they have no choice in good movies to show? No premieres of any type? Does Movie Central have the equivalent of what we have in the East, Encore or Movie Fest?

Dr.Dave, as this thread is about Canadian premium channels, do you also take Super Channel into consideration? It is the 'other' premium channel and it carries a number of shows from U.S. premium channels, mostly Starz and Showtime.

Sure, we can include Super Channel, but I just post press releases that I come across from Bell Media and Corus. Someone else will have to contribute the Super Channel information.
