PlayItSimple, will you be a bit offended if I prove you wrong on that last statement?
What part of the statement are you referring to? That all the channels the CRTC keeps approving are crap or that the only channels being added are ones that belong to big media companies? Either way go ahead and prove me wrong, I am not offended. Merely expressing an opinion which is just that and based on the info I have available to me. Things may change that may cause me to change my opinion.

BTW, any progress on getting your channel on the air? Good luck, we need more independent voices on the airways, enough of these corporate bigwigs, time to bring them down a few notches.

This one.
The only channels that have a fairly good chance of launching are ones owned by the 'big' guys like CTVglobemedia, CanWest Global, etc.
As for my progress, I've founded the corporation and I've applied for the trade-mark. Next up is preparing the business plan, finalizing my start-up budget, applying for a small business loan (the bank is excited about my project), building the automated broadcast system and on-line auction site, getting the satellite uplink, signing up a distributor...

There's still a lot of work to do which is why it'll take me almost a year to launch the channel. Luckily my schedule is very flexible. And since I'm the only shareholder, I don't have anyone pushing me frantically to get the channel on the air as soon as possible.

This should be a fun experience! :)

Cosmo/ Reality

When does Cosmopolitan channel start, as previews always advertised? Who is all carrying it for air? Reality tv channel should be launched as there is certainly enough stuff to fill a channel worth!!!!!

CTV Newsnet HD might be a sign that there newscasts might be switching to HD, hopefully they will switch the 11:00 news to HD :)

Kinda confused why MTV would apply for HD

The MLB network launching on Jan 1st isn't that only in the U.S

What could be CBC SportsPlus ????

MLB Network IS only for US that is why I mentioned that Rogers is applying for a Baseball Channel. So when the MLB Network launches they will launch their own Canadian baseball network which I think will be similar to Raptors NBA TV. It will have programming from MLB Network as well as Canadian programming probably Blue Jays stuff.

As for CBC SportsPlus, its a Sports channel from CBC that will air amateur sports as well as some professional stuff. Most likely the events that CBC has the rights to like Blue Jays baseball, soccer, Raptors basketball, etc.

Ahhh ok. I can see rogers launching a jays HD channel. As for CBC if they start putting all there sports content on that channel, they will almost have nothing to fill up there schedule on the regular cbc.
