That explains why it's missing from Paramount Network, not that I watched it there anyway. Paramount Network aired a rerun of 1883 on Jan 2. I'll take a look for The Road West.

I find it interesting that Paramount+ shows which rights in Canada are owned by Rogers or Corus, e.g. The Good Fight, The Twilight Zone, Interrogation, Evil, SEAL Team, Five Bedrooms Why Women Kill are available on Paramount+ in Canada, while shows which rights in Canada are owned by Bell are not available, e.g. Star Trek: Discovery, Star Trek: Picard, RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars.

The rights negotiated for the Star Trek franchise preceded most of those other programs and, judging by the bragging done by one Bell executive, probably include exclusive rights for a very long time. Another reason may be that Bell is willing to pay a lot more for ongoing exclusive rights than Corus. Corus does retain exclusive rights to the new shows mentioned for some time. That was once up to a year after initial airing but now appears to be as little as one week after the initial airing, depending on the show. Another trend seems to be for Paramount+ exclusive programming in the US to not be aired on TV in Canada but going straight to Paramount + Canada, as seen with Seal team.

There appears to difference between Bell and Corus with Bell airing more shows on its channels that are exclusive to Paramount+ in the US (The Good Fight, Star Trek spinoffs) but Corus is not (Seal Team.) Again, that is determined by negotiation between the parties and on how much broadcasters are willing to pay. Bell appears to be a tough negotiator when it comes to programming rights and carriage of US stations and also appears to be willing to retain rights in order to retain the market positions of its Crave streaming service and conventional TV services.

... Five Bedrooms are available on Paramount+ in Canada.
Can you confirm if that's correct? I thought it was only available on STACKTV (seasons 1 & 2) and Global TV (season 2).

I don't think you can draw the general conclusion you're drawing, but I would have to double-check.

For some reason I wrote Five Bedrooms when what I meant was Why Women Kill.

I did not draw any conclusion, I just found that fact interesting. In addition, several of current CBS shows carried by Global are available: NCIS franchise, FBI franchise, CSI: Vegas, Survivor, Good Sam etc., while none of current CBS shows on CTV/CTV2 is available.

CBS shows carried by Global are subject to a minimum one week delay on Paramount+. I've seen some shows occasionally delayed by several weeks.
