Where sports, pop culture, and media meet
Independent station CHCH-TV in Hamilton, Ontario (outside of Toronto) is converting its’ entire programming schedule (sans news and prime-time programming) to E! programming, beginning Sept. 1. This marks the first time that a U.S. cable network is taking over a broadcast station and its’ repeaters in Canada.
CHCH owner CanWest has pledged to continue airing Canadian content on the station, but I have a feeling this will rub Canadians – particularly in Hamilton – the wrong way.
