RFD-TV and The Cowboy Channel Have Come to Canada In Partnership with Wild TV

Today marks the launch of RFD-TV Canada and The Cowboy Channel Canada, bringing Rural Media Group’s TV Programming to an all new audience in collaboration with Wild TV Network.

“We have adopted a new culture, acquired a powerhouse sales team, and increased our staff to accommodate even more new channels in addition to RFD-TV Canada and The Cowboy Channel Canada,” he says.

The two networks launch Canada wide on Shaw Direct TODAY, with planned expansion to the rest of the cable and satellite companies across Canada later in 2020.

I found the press release dated February 3rd for the Canadian version of these U.S. channels. They don't need a licence from the CRTC until they reach 200,000 subs.

Shaw Direct channel numbers:
337 Cowboy Channel
456 RFD TV

From the press release in post 1:

"We can bring the outdoorsmen and -women in the rural areas of Canada the best niche channels in the world. RFD-TV Canada focuses on agriculture, rural lifestyle, traditional music, and entertainment. Together with The Cowboy Channel Canada, featuring western sports and the most iconic PRCA rodeos in North America, we’ll offer Canadians two more outdoor and rural lifestyle-themed channels to choose from."

Here's the wiki page for the American channel - I don't know if there's a lot a difference between the two.
