The Original Santa Claus Parade will be converted into a 2-hour national, primetime television special with broadcast partner CTV, airing Saturday, December 5 at 7 p.m. ET on CTV and CTV2. Staged in a closed set parade route, the CTV broadcast will be produced by Bell Media Studios and will adhere to local COVID-19 safety protocols. Additional details will follow leading up to the broadcast. (Bell Media Press Release)

CTV made a last-minute schedule change on Thursday to drop the broadcast of STAR TREK: DISCOVERY and simsub MATCH GAME at 10 PM ET instead. I can only receive Canadian channels by antenna, so that got screwed up, but fortunately I recorded the U.S. channel on my Fibe PVR. Bell never updated the CTV.ca or Fibe TV guide, but Zap2it had the correct info. Zap2it says the same thing will happen next Thursday.

But these are just repeats of season 1 and season 2 episodes, right? Season 3 (ie; new episodes) are promoted as coming on Oct 15.

That's correct. Season 1 is new to broadcast TV on CBS and CTV. Season 3 will be on CTV Sci-Fi.

CTV will re-air this week’s original episode of JANN, entitled “Tomato, Tomato”, on Thursday, Oct. 8 at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT following YOUNG SHELDON. The episode is currently streaming on Crave, CTV.ca, and the CTV app. A power outage at Bell Media’s broadcast facilities in Scarborough, Ont. last night, impacted CTV programming in some markets.

JANN returns to its regular Mondays at 8 p.m. ET/PT timeslot on CTV with an all-new episode Oct. 12. Please note the Oct. 12 original episode of JANN airs at a special time (8 p.m. MT/AT) on CTV in Alberta and Atlantic Canada. (Press Release)

That explains why I couldn't stream a program from Crave last night. I'm assuming the outage wasn't scheduled.

A bit off topic, I have a question. CTV2 Alberta and CTV2 Atlantic are cable-only stations. Do they have simsubbing authority in their respective territories?

It used to be that they can ask for a simsub but as they are not OTA the cable/satellite company can decline the request. Things may have changed.

The short answer is no. They do not have the right to simsub or even request simsubs if no station is operating with a grade 1 or grade 2 signal contour. The long answer is that special exceptions to simsub rules have been granted and some companies just flout regulations if it is to their advantage. (Yet another reason to reduce concentration of ownership in the broadcasting industry.) The worst offender is Bell. They obtained an exception, due to technical shortcomings on their satellite equipment, allowing national simsubs on their satellite service. They appear to have perverted that exception to performing simsubs on all their services for all channels, even non-OTA channels, and performing simsubs on the feeds they provide to third parties such as cable systems.

Actually according the CRTC CTV2 Atlantic and Alberta are mentioned explicitly in the regulations


local television station, in relation to a licensed area of a distribution undertaking, means
  • (a) a licensed television station that
    • (i) has a Grade A official contour or digital urban official contour that includes any part of the licensed area, or
    • (ii) if there is no Grade A official contour or digital urban official contour, has a transmitting antenna that is located within 15 km of the licensed area;
  • (b) an educational authority responsible for an educational television programming service; or
  • (c) the station CTV Two Atlantic or CTV Two Alberta. (station de télévision locale)
So those two stations do have the right. Services like TSN no longer have the right.
