This thread will discuss the schedule updates for the Bell Media Specialty Channels for the 2021-22 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, VRAK and 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.

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