HBO Canada

HBO Canada is a Canadian television channel primarily devoted to original programming sourced from the HBO subscription service in the United States. HBO Canada is not available as a standalone channel, but as one multiplex channel within two regional premium television services: The Movie Network (TMN), which is available in Eastern Canada, and Movie Central, which is offered in Western and Northern Canada.

As different multiplex channels of a single pay service cannot have separate sets of owners, each service's parent company (Astral Media for TMN, Corus Entertainment for Movie Central) officially retains full ownership of the HBO Canada channel in their respective territories. However, in practice the channel is jointly managed by both companies, and thus the HBO Canada schedule is common to both services, except that TMN's feed of the channel operates on Eastern Time while Movie Central feeds the same programming two hours later, i.e. on Mountain Time. HBO's parent company Time Warner is not a shareholder, and only licenses the name to Astral and Corus.

Famous quotes containing the word canada:

    Though the words Canada East on the map stretch over many rivers and lakes and unexplored wildernesses, the actual Canada, which might be the colored portion of the map, is but a little clearing on the banks of the river, which one of those syllables would more than cover.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
