Fantastic news about Sunny. Showcase has done a pretty horrible job with airing Sunny, I'm very glad it'll be in the hands of a network that will treat it right.

Few new channels have excited me over the years since they're all the same, but must admit FX is looking pretty good.

There is lots of promised programming but it's still just promises. Looking at the current schedule, I find it difficult to get excited about endless reruns of 30 Rock, Da Vinci's Inquest and Murdock Mysteries. And just exactly what is FX (special effects) about those? (Or Russel Brand's show for that matter?) I hate that specialty channels are being so dumbed down by channel proliferation and Cancon rules.

My mistake. Yet another useful acronym co-opted by a commercial identity. My opinion of FX, in general, stands though.

ExDilbert FX has some really good shows like Justified and the Americans. Also the Bridge looks pretty good.

Agreed. I watched The Americans and enjoyed it. It's one of the best of it's genre. I'm just wondering why we needed yet another specialty channel to get these shows in a timely manner. If FX Canada does a good job of airing them, which appears to be the case, I will give them lots of credit for that.

I think that The League is moving to FXX so it may not be airing on Sept 5 in Canada. :(

The press release I posted is from Rogers Media - the owners of FX Canada - they would have the Canadian rights based on the pre-existing contract.

There is another thread that says Rogers will be starting FXX Canada in Jan. 2014.

'The Tunnel' airs Tuesdays at 10 p.m. beginning January 7.

Home to the most gripping and envelope-pushing series on specialty television, FX Canada continues to break down boundaries with the new 10-part, one-hour crime drama The Tunnel. Hot on the heels of the hit summer series The Bridge, The Tunnel – also based on the Danish/Swedish crime series Bron – joins FX Canada’s world-class roster of critically acclaimed programming, airing Tuesdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT (check local listings) beginning January 7.

quite enjoyed The Bridge and look forward to seeing the tunnel . The international cast/aspect is usually appealing and the chunnel will be a new cross border location .

I have just got this channel so would like to watch The Bridge and The Tunnel from the beginning but they do not seem to offered on-line. Any one know if they will be repeated? THanks

Cheadlebeagle, they do series marathons on most long weekends so keep an I out for them. I'm pretty sure they just played the entire Bridge series last weekend during that long weekend.
