CRTC reveals 2017 TV channel financial data

The CRTC released their financial report for Canadian broadcasting in 2017. Tracked between September 1, 2016 and August 31, 2017, total broadcasting revenue dropped 3.3% year-over-year. The total number of TV (cable/IPTV/satelite) subscribers in the country declined 1.9% from the year before.

Do note that the CRTC has changed the way they’ve distributed information on individual channels. Rather than separate pages for each service hosted on their website, they’ve instead dumped all of it in a large PDF file on Open Canada. View the blog’s coverage on last year’s results here.

CRTC reveals 2016 TV channel financial data

Warning: This is a long one.

It took a little longer than usual, but the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission has revealed the individual TV channel financial data for the broadcast year starting September 1, 2015, and ending August 31, 2016. I’ll be highlighting figures from channels that are somewhat relevant to this blog, so feel free to dig through your favourite (or least favourite) TV channel’s data. How many of them operate with 0 full-time staff? The answer is too many. Continue reading

The Guardian Code reveal disappoints ReBoot fans

With shooting in Vancouver and Victoria set to wrap up this week, Corus Entertainment and Mainframe Studios (a unit of Rainmaker Animation, which in turn is a division of WOW! Unlimited Media) have officially announced new details and have shared the first production stills from their reboot of the classic 1994 Canadian animated series, ReBoot. The live-action/CG-animated hybrid, titled ReBoot: The Guardian Code, is set to air on YTV in Canada in 2018. Confirming some things we already knew, the first season will run for 20 episodes (down from its initial 26 episode order in 2015) and will be an action-comedy about four teens becoming Guardians of cyberspace.

Ending A 16 Year Run On YTV, Pokémon Heads To Teletoon

It looks like Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal‘s Teletoon premiere was foreshadowing something yet to come. Ending a run that started in 1998, YTV has pulled Pokémon and the rest of its anime programming from its lineup. This includes shows like Beyraiderz, Digimon Fusion, B-Daman Crossfire and the aforementioned Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal. That would usually be bad news but along with Power Rangers: Super Megaforce, most of those shows are moving to Teletoon. Continue reading

YTV debuts the final seven episodes of Beyblade: Shogun Steel exclusively online

unairedshogunsteel

When Beywarriors: Beyraiderz began airing on YTV, I mentioned that the western-exclusive Beyblade spinoff had replaced the time slot of the latest mainline show, Beyblade: Shogun Steel. YTV’s broadcast of the show ended prematurely at episode nineteen. At the time, I expected the show to simply go on hiatus while Beyraiderz aired as a promotional tie-in for toys hitting the shelves, but it looks like that won’t be the case. YTV has announced that the final seven episodes of the series will only be available to stream through their website. They’ve already posted the first four episodes to watch. Continue reading
