Already Have them in my package*:

That's why I said "offering some or all of the following news channels." It sounds like you're on Rogers and they haven't included LCN on their preview page.

Most of the others you listed seem to be specific to Rogers. Shaw and Rogers both announced Treehouse March 16 - March 31. Salt + Light was posted previously.

Yes, I'm with Roger, in New-Brunswick and with the (now) legacy digital system, that 's maybe why. Thinking about upgrading to Ignite TV next month when my discount expires.

I probably missed or didn't reminder of the announcement for Salt and Light, sorry about that, I was just doing my (almost) weekly channel scan, I like to do that when I have nothing else to do or watch at that moment. :)

This thread is for national previews that are available on multiple providers. Each provider forum on this site has a sticky thread for previews, so you should post in the preview thread in the Rogers forum. People that use Rogers are more likely to see it there and it won't confuse others.

Both Rogers and Cogeco have made made a large number of extra channels available. They don't seem to be national previews, but are probably because have both have large Ontario customer bases. Other smaller Ontario providers may also participate, although Bell isn't.

Bell has also joined the wide-scale previews, so these could be national.

To help Canadians stay informed and entertained during the COVID-19 situation, several channels are currently on free preview. A selection of news, entertainment, family and lifestyle channels will be available for free over the next few weeks. Including CTV News, Hollywood Suite, Disney Channel and HGTV Canada.
