This thread will discuss the schedule updates for the CBC broadcast network and their specialty channels.

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.

CBC Gem Streaming Service and CBC Listen free audio streaming service have their own threads.

CBC showed season 1 of Pure, but decided not to pick up season 2. Super Channel picked up the rights for both seasons and is still showing them in reruns. I guess they had the season 2 exclusive for a year and it will now be available on both channels.
