Why not wait till January and rebrand it as OWN - Oprah Winfrey Network?? I guess that would cost them too much money. Don't really see how you can say they are ruining it as the new channel appears to have similar programming to what is currently on Discovery Health. Part of the reason this is happening is because CTV acquired the rights to most Discovery programming. I guess perhaps CTV will launch OWN next year.

And why would we need a Canadian version of that??????

Makes more sense to just get the US feed. Hell, apparently Shania Twain's getting her own show on the channel, that should count for enough CanCon :)

Just something wrong with the new naming process for channels.....Twist...Cave......Bite......must be pulling the names from grade one classrooms.

IDK, I kinda like names like that. They do it in the UK sometimes. For example, they have a history channel is called "Yesterday", a game show channel is called "Challenge", and a men's channel is called "DAVE", with it's +1 service(timeshift) called Dave Ja Vu.

It kinda depends on the name I guess. I agree though that "The Cave" was not a good choice of name for a men's channel, kinda makes us sound like cavemen.

Just wait until CTV brings in their Canadian version of Oprah's network. You know there's no way they, or rather Bell, will pass up on a money making opportunity like that and you know with Oprah's name behind it, it will make money for sure.

Not really, last time I checked that channel was owned by Discovery and CTV owns the rights to most Discovery programming which makes a Canadian version entirely possible.

It's owned 50% by Discovery and 50% by Harpo Productions which is Oprah's company. I'm not saying a Canadian version is impossible, but it's a matter of necessity.
