This thread will discuss the schedule updates for the Bell Media Specialty Channels for the 2022-23 broadcast year. Here is an alphabetical list of Bell Media Specialty Channels:

Animal Planet, BNN Bloomberg, CP24, CTV Comedy Channel, CTV Drama Channel, CTV Life Channel, CTV Sci-Fi Channel, CTV News Channel, Discovery, Discovery Science, Discovery Velocity, E!, Investigation Discovery, MTV and Much.

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.

I noticed this morning that past seasons of the Star Trek franchise will be leaving CTV Sci-Fi On-demand and CTV.ca effective September 6. This includes Discovery, Picard, Prodigy and Lower Decks. The only thing left will be season 3 of Lower Decks which will only be available until November 26. I take this to mean that the contract with Paramount has not been renewed under the previous terms and that Crave will also be affected. I expect Paramount+ Canada will have exclusive rights to past seasons. Lower Decks Season 3 and the older series continue to air on the linear channel.
