The last press release that mentioned Much Countdown was in 2015. They haven't published their official fall grid yet, so I don't if it's a temporary hiatus or they dropped the show altogether.

I checked the schedule at Much.com, Zap2it.com and TVGuide.com before I posted. The first 2 had removed Countdown from their schedules and are generally more accurate. Rovi supplies the guide data to TV Guide, a lot of cable service providers and Windows Media Center. They sometimes miss schedule updates, especially to Canadian specialty channels, so I didn't bother posting what is probably the old schedule. You can give it a try, but I think it's a long shot.

Last night I also checked Much on Twitter and there was no mention in the last couple of months. You can try asking there and see if you get any response.

The problem with a series like this is that it better be good right from the start. The fact that there are no continuing characters or story arcs to keep the viewer coming back to see what happens next makes it imperative that every story be compelling. The legendary Rod Serling did it with The Twilight Zone. Few have been able to do it since. Good luck to this series.

Has there been any mention of the Much Countdown in press releases? Much doesn't have it on their schedule anymore.
It appears that Much's evening music programming is gone too... did Bell negotiate Much's terms with the CRTC and reduced how much music they must broadcast or what?

@MTV the CRTC changed the standard requirements for all providers last year to remove "genre protection" so any channel could compete. Whatever specific requirements a channel had regarding their "nature of service" were removed when the licences of the large media companies were renewed September 1. If you want to discuss those topics further, you can use either of these threads:
