Bell Media announced today that it will rename the /A\ network to CTV Two this fall.

Bell says the rebranded network will broadcast in high definition to English Canadian viewers in Vancouver/Victoria, Toronto/Barrie, Ottawa, London, Windsor and Atlantic Canada.

Bell also announced that in order to expand its reach to almost 90% of English Canadians, the telecommunications giant will apply to the CRTC to extend the reach of its Barrie transmitter to Toronto and Hamilton and will move forward with plans to add a re-broadcast transmitter in southern Ontario in 2012.

The complete CTV Two schedule will be announced this Thursday at an advertising industry event in downtown Toronto. It's expected the network's programming will be dominated by U.S. network programming such as NBC's Tonight Show, Fox's American Idol and CBS's Two and a Half Men.
