What about Corus's Specialty channels including Lifetime, OWN, Cooking Channel, BBC Canada and other specialty channels. There are no new fall and midseason shows announced for these channels. I was wondering about this when I was reading the Corus press release last night. Hopefully we will find out this week.

I do not see Lifetime Canada listed as one of the brands on Corus Entertainments website. I am surprised about this.

Corus finally updated practically all of there specialty websites (minus HGTV, Food Network, History, W, Showcase, etc.). I like the simplicity, looks like they are using a uniform coding skeleton similar to Showcase's website, but man... these are some bare bone sites. Can't even watch shows anymore on some of their sites and can't even find a list of shows, just the tiles on the landing page.
