Corus should probably get rid of channels not on the STACKTV service or the Global TV app.

Bell, Rogers, and Remstar seem like perfect buyers.

DTOUR, DejaView, The History Channel 2, MovieTime, Cartoon Network, and Nickelodeon are the six that might need to be shut down permanently.

National Geographic Wild should probably be renamed to The Movie Network (second incarnation) and remove advertising campaigns.

all other Corus specialty channels will remain the same.
I really don't think these channels would shut down anytime soon unless there is a much larger point to reconsider as Cartoon Network Canada serves as a stand-in for Teletoon which in my opinion serves as the primary basis for Turner/WB library programming and for Nickelodeon, Who cares about this channel anyway?

Besides that, the least Corus would've done is bring back Teletoon Retro.
What I am thinking is Corus get rid of all channels except those on the Amazon Prime Video service STACKTV. These will help them concentrate on the channel line-up who gets a lot of attention.

Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network must be rebranded to retro offshoots of Teletoon and YTV, so the old school programming for children get the spotlight back.

And ABC Spark barely airs any films for the family (they are airing Abominable on Saturday late night, and both Secret Life of Pets movies on Boxing Day). None of the Corus channels air any movies from Disney, Pixar, nor Blue Sky anymore, which is heartbreaking since early this year.
Canadian versions of Disney Channel, Disney XD and Disney Junior have now been added to STACK TV.
That was thirteen days ago. They were already mentioned on the Corus Entertainment website.
To be honest, Boomerang Canada debuts March 27, as a renaming from Cartoon Network.

Teletoon, on the other hand, is becoming Cartoon Network Canada.

And by the way, none of Corus' channels have aired Disney and Pixar movies, as well as the 2019 Blue Sky Studios film Spies in Disguise in the past 62 days.

Oh, so you think?
Somebody hacked into the website, and took away schedules for some Corus TV channels. From what I saw last night into this afternoon, some stations are ending on either May 29 or June 5, which is false information.

Hopefully, the channel listings get fixed and straightened up.
Soon time to close this thread, because the 2023 Corus Entertainment upfront is on June 7, 2023.

I wonder what new programming will be announced. Also, their first upfront where Cartoon Network Canada will be mentioned instead of the late TELETOON.
Apparently, YTV fired its hosts earlier last month, without any fanfare or official announcement.

And the channel's broadcast license is forecast to expire on August 18, 2023.

I don't want what happened to TELETOON to happen to YTV.
