I've decided to start a new thread to post schedule announcements for all Crave-related TV channels, including the Crave streaming service. This includes the Crave TV channels (formerly TMN) which include movies and many Showtime series, HBO Canada and Starz (formerly TMN Encore.)

Bell Media issues a combined press release for all these services for the upcoming month. I post schedule updates, series premieres and specials based on press releases. I will also post updates from U.S. sources such as series renewals and cancellations as they are announced. I don't usually post program descriptions or "PR-speak," so if you want more info, you can click on the associated link in the post.

On-air 24-hour schedules are available on the Crave site. These seem to extend for 2 weeks currently, and there is a print option that may show the full schedule for a month or two, but I'm not sure how often it will be updated.

To discuss the Crave service in general and to see previous schedules, please see this thread:

Revised press release: VEEP, BARRY, LEAVING NEVERLAND and THE CASE AGAINST ADNAN SYED were mentioned in the text of the press release, but not on the HBO lineup. They corrected the press release, so I replaced the HBO section.

Counterpart and other Starz programming is being taken off the Crave + HBO + Movies service. An additional Starz subscription will be required to access it.

Thank you Dr. Dave this makes it easier to find HBO shows. ExDilbert I read that the ppl who make Counterpart are trying to find some body else to pay for it.

That was really fast. I still have another 5 or 6 episodes from season 2 to watch, so I guess I need to hurry up, before they take them down. Makes me think whether it was worth renewing Crave subscription for another full year.:rolleyes:

Maybe somewhat related, all episodes of The Expanse have been taken off Crave and Space. My suspicion is that Bell lost its rights to Amazon Prime Canada who will have all seasons when season 4 starts there sometime this year.

VEEP, BARRY, LEAVING NEVERLAND and THE CASE AGAINST ADNAN SYED were mentioned in the text of the last press release, but not on the lineup, so I updated that post.

I have been posting renewals and cancellations in the Bell Media Specialty Channel 2018-19 schedules. Future posts will now be in this thread, making things easier to follow.

There were several other renewals and cancellations posted in addition to the Counterpart cancellation. Here are some new HBO Canada updates.

Camping - limited series, no plans for a second season. (Hollywood Reporter)

Chernobyl (five-part miniseries) debuts on HBO in May. (Bell Media)

C.B. Strike (Cinemax) will get four new episodes on the BBC (UK) based on J.K Rowling’s latest book Lethal White. No word yet whether HBO Canada and Cinemax will show the new episodes. (Deadline)

Warrior (Cinemax) premieres Friday, April 5 at 10 p.m. ET. (Bell Media)

Outcast cancelled by Cinemax after two seasons. (Hollywood Reporter)

The March printable PDF daily schedule is now available for HBO and Crave channels. April is not included and there isn't a schedule for Starz.

----

OPRAH WINFREY PRESENTS: AFTER NEVERLAND will debuts on HBO/Crave on MONDAY, MARCH 4 (10:00-11:00 p.m. ET/PT), immediately following the conclusion of part two of Leaving Neverland on HBO/Crave. (Bell Media Press Release)

....there isn't a schedule for Starz.
Just as an FYI, there is a schedule in Movie Entertainment Magazine, which is where the Crave pdf comes from.

Those who need this information, feel free to contact Starz/Crave.

(I have no idea why they make such a mess of the pdf with HBO out of place and the dates all jumbled. It would be possible to take a "screenshot" of the pages as laid out in the magazine...)

Is the magazine only available as hard copy, or is there an online link you can post?

There is provision for a PDF schedule at Starz.ca, but there is only the Jan/Feb Crave/HBO schedule there as a placeholder.

It appears to only be available as hard copy. It costs about $2/copy, but it's included in my overall package with Rogers and my "Grandfathered Ultimate VIP with Movies" package.

I tried searching the web for Movie Entertainment Magazine and like you I just found links at Crave or Starz and those either contained nothing as a pdf, or a link to an old Encore page from last November...

Interestingly, there is a link printed near the front of the magazine, but it's dead.

movieentertainment.ca

It also stated that it was published by "Feature Publishing Ltd" and I didn't find anything there either.

I thought that Counterpart was supposed to be available on Crave until March 19, but there's already a message that the Starz subscription is needed, when I try to watch any episode. I guess I made a mistake by renewing my annual Crave subscription, but I am not going to make that same mistake again.

@DonR, StarZ is available as a $5.99/mo add-on to Crave. See https://www.crave.ca/subscribe. Scroll down to see the add-ons.

@57, I had that package and found out that I could cancel the magazine subscription and get the bill reduced by $2/mo.

movieentertainment.ca belonged to Astral Media. It looks like nobody at Bell could be bothered to renew it or maintain the site. Typical Bell, buy up the competition then gut services and raise prices.

I know, but I am not going to spend extra $5.99, just to see a few episodes of Counterpart. And by the way, Counterpart is still available...I just figured it out. Works fine on my Amazon Fire TV Stick, but for some reason my Apple TV is giving me that message about having to subscribe to StarZ. Everything else from Crave works fine on Apple TV...go figure.:confused:

The On-Air schedule of the Crave.ca site has been enhanced to include the schedules for Starz 1 and 2. The "print schedule" function now loads the March PDF including Crave 1-4, HBO 1 & 2 and Starz 1 & 2.

----

Starz announced that The Spanish Princess will premiere Sunday, May 5 in the U.S. (Source) The limited series is a followup to The White Queen and The White Princess, which were originally shown by Super Channel in Canada and are now available on Starz Canada. It's not clear if Super Channel will get first-run rights as a result of their previous contract, or if the series will go directly to Starz Canada since Lionsgate is the international distributor.
