First off, keyboards are cheap.

 

Second, what is CTV by your definition?  I can think of several things it could be.

CTV (Candian Network) would have to be carried by Bell (or another Canadian carrier)

The only way it could be added is if the station is listed as a significantly viewed local in select border counties.

CTV's schedule has changed a lot in the past few years, the Canadian shows that were a staple of their primetime lineup like Corner Gas and Canadian Idol ended, Degrassi moved to MuchMusic and the rest is US programming. Daytime is mostly syndicated US talk shows like Live with Kelly and Michael, Ellen, Dr. Phil, Dr. Oz and ABC's The View, late night is encores of the Daily Show, Colbert and Conan. There's very little content they could clear on a national basis in the USA outside of Canada AM, eTalk, the Marilyn Denis Show, W5 and the evening news.

With the exception of CBC, most Canadian broadcast networks are full of the same programs we get here in the U.S.A. just all mixed up (I.E. the FOX line up with some on CTV, some on Global the rest on "E", "CH", The New Net or whatever they are calling their nets now (I used to get them at times when they were still analog but not since they went digital).

 

The only Canadian network that would make sense "importing" would be CBC.  Perhaps they couild do what BBC did, have a "CBC America" (I know that that name wuld never fly as they too see themselves as "Americans").

The CBC would be nice or CBC Newsworld. Also BBC World. We have CCTV and Russia today. So why not a bundle of International news channels in English?

Yes, Dish should have an "International English" bundle, perhaps on 118 along with the other international channels.  As well as BBC World and one or both of the Canadian news channels (CBCNW and CTVN), consideration should be given to France 24, Aljazeera English (NOT America), Euronews, Skynews, Russia Today, DW (Germany) in English and possibly the South African, Australian and Chinese English all news channels.  I would certainly subscribe to such a package as I am sure would many of the tens of thousands English speaking expats in the U.S.  Add to that similar numbers of Americans wanting a diverse source of news about the world and I am sure Dish would have a winner!

I agree that international English language nets need to be added,  NOT ON 118!  If it's in English it should be on one of the "core" sats.

 

Also, please add my name to the request for CBC.  I used to get it on cable back in the 80's. 

 

BTW: I don't believe any "border" DMA's get any Canadian stations (they do on the Mexican border but those stations carry a U.S. network).  Not even Detroit, where CBET-9 is programmed differently than the rest of the CBC stations (i.e. they took off the few U.S. syndicated shows that CBC carries so that the station would be compatible with Detroit cable systems).  If I was in the Detroit DMA I would specifically ask for that station.

It would be hard for Dish to do it outside of border areas like Detroit, Seattle, Buffalo and other northern areas where some Canadian stations are on the significantly viewed lists so they wouldn't be subject to blackout. For much of their programming the CBC only has the Canadian rights, especially when it comes to the movies, sports, imported shows from the UK and shows they sold to 3rd parties for international distribution. The movies are with various distributors, UP has the rights to Heartland, Live Well has the rights to Steven and Chris, Trifecta has the distribution rights to the Republic of Doyle, NHL has the rights to Hockey Night in Canada, NBC has the rights to the playoffs, Hulu has the exclusive rights to Coronation Street, much of the kids programming is held by other preschool networks like PBS and Nick Jr, some of their non NHL sporting events are held by Universal Sports. CBC could make an American feed with programming they can clear nationally, which they did at one point with Trio and Newsworld International, but budget cuts forced them to sell those networks in the early 2000s, and a lot more cuts have happened since then. They even lost the rights to produce Hockey Night in Canada to Rogers who will now have creative control next season and CBC will just air whatever Rogers lets them air as part of a sublicensing agreement.

CBC News Network cannot be offered in the USA because of the documentaries and other programming they air in the evenings and overnight, you'd have a better chance of getting CTV News Channel where it is all in house.

Al Jazeera English is up to Al Jazeera itself to reconsider their decision. They pulled the network from the few US providers and OTA stations that carried it when Al Jazeera America launched, encrypted their free to air satellite feed and geoblocked the stream.

ABC News 24 cannot be offered outside of Australia because their license for much of the 3rd party content they use to fill time between simulcasts and encore presenations is licensed for Australia only. They make a point of this on their website.

Back in the 80's there was Fraggle Rock on CBC.  In the U.S. it was on HBO.  Since my cable system carried CBC that program was available w/o an HBO subscription.  Then there was a live Who concert on Pay Per View.  It came in for free on CBC, explicates and all!  They did not break for a commercial for over an hour! Then there was SCTV - in prime time on CBC, it was on at 1 AM in the U.S.A., also they did a different version for Canada.  No blackouts or "sim-sub", just a variable quality in reception (the station was 110 miles due north, however the 1st 60 miles was Lake Erie so no ground clutter to interfere).  The cable company had a short tower, about the height of today's cell towers, with a quad-stacked yagi for ch 10.

 

I miss CBC!

I agree with the rest of your post outlining why we won't get Canadian channels on US satellite ... but it annoys me when cable can and satellite cannot. Whatever law allows the local cable company to carry a channel should allow satellite to carry the channel.

What gets me is the US networks are carried on the Canadian systems, but for some reason recipricacy is not allowed!

Basically, the lawyers need to get out of the mix and let the systems focus on serving the viewers.

 

MPAA, RIAA and other such rackets are destroying the business.

In Canada you rarely see the full US networks. If a Canadian channel is airing a program at the same time as the US station it is replaced with a simulcast of the Canadian network. Even the Superstations like WGN, WPIX, WPCH, WSBK and KTLA get programs replaced. The only thing you do see is local news, the morning shows like GMA and Today, infomercials, select syndicated series as long as a Canadian station isn't airing the syndicated strip at the same time, Jimmy Kimmel Live since City still airs it at midnight, and the occasional freshman series that hasn't been picked up by a Canadian network yet.
