This thread will discuss the schedule updates for the Bell Media Specialty Channels for the 2020-21 broadcast year. Here is an alphabetical list of Bell Media Specialty Channels, including French channels:

Animal Planet, BNN Bloomberg, Canal D, Canal Vie, Cinépop, CP24, CTV Comedy Channel, CTV Drama Channel, CTV Life Channel, CTV Sci-Fi Channel, CTV News Channel, Discovery, Discovery Science, Discovery Velocity, E!, Investigation, Investigation Discovery, MTV, Much, Super Écran, VRAK, Z

I post schedule updates, series premieres and specials based on press releases as well as series renewals and cancellations as they are announced. I don't usually post on-going episode information, repeats, program descriptions or "PR-speak," so if you want more info, you can click on the associated link in the post. I don't post sports news since that is best discussed in the sports forum.

They have started issuing weekly Programming Highlights for The CTV Channel Group. I usually extract any schedule changes or new series or movies that haven't been posted previously. You can always click on the link to see the full press release, including top picks of on-going series.

There is a separate thread for Crave Schedules Including HBO, Starz, Showtime and Movies.

Mud Mountain (working title), the second spin-off of the Highway Thru Hell franchise. Bell Media has ordered eight one-hour episodes for Discovery and will distribute the series around the world.

Thunderbird has implemented strict health and safety cultures on all of its shows, which has enabled the Company to remain fully operational throughout COVID-19. These protocols and measures were key to the safe development and production of the new Mud Mountain series.
