    Icon7 Sundance Channel becomes Treehouse Retro later this year!!!

    I am told by Corus Entertainment who acquired Shaw Media that later this year, as we prepare to bring the American SundanceTV channel to Canada for the first time, Sundance Channel will officially relaunch and rebrand as Treehouse Retro, it will be your new commercial-free channel (like Treehouse TV and unlike Sundance Channel) for classic Treehouse TV favorites like Treetown, Crazy Quilt, Ants in your Pants, Wumpa's World, Pirates, Wee 3, and many more!!!

    Please let us know when you want to reply if you have any questions and answers about the new Treehouse Retro, the new name for Sundance Channel.

    And don't forget to visit treehousetv.com when Treehouse Retro launches later this year, hopefully by July or August.

    Hey, let's get some REAL news about Corus:

    http://kidscreen.com/2016/03/23/deir...at-corus-kids/
    [Kids programming is apparently important to Corus]

    Excerpt:

    March 23, 2016

    Deirdre Brennan lands at Corus Kids

    Corus Kids EVP Colin Bohm, to whom Brennan will report, says his new colleague’s holistic perspective on the kids business will prove to be beneficial during a time of continued growth for the company.

    “As we look at the next couple of years, Brennan is a key part of the puzzle. Our two objectives are to grow our domestic portfolio of channels, while also really expanding our global business through Nelvana, and she will help shape a slate of content that works domestically and globally,” says Bohm.

    “Brennan has so much experience working abroad, which informs this content outlook, and leveraging all of her relationships is an important element.”

    First, any non-canadian channel wanting to enter the canadian market has to be sponsored by a canadian company that will submit a request at the CRTC. That didn't happen... yet.

    Once submitted, canadians can support or oppose the CRTC request. Unless Allarco is on-board with this, they will oppose this request as some IFC shows are programming supplies for Super Channel.

    Corus will soon inherit Shaw Media channels, and yes, IFC is the weakest link. H2 is another one. Both are Cat A licences, meaning wider distribution. Teletoon Retro launched as Cat 2 specialty and was bundled with the original Teletoon. I don't see the point in wasting a Cat A licence for a retro Treehouse channel when they can swap a Cat B licence and force-bundle it with the original Treehouse.

    I have a contact that works for Corus and I can tell you that this is absolutely not true. Plus there is no market for retro channels these days. Library content is easily accessible on on demand services and over the top services like Netflix.

    One thing to keep in mind is Category A license status goes away as of August 31, 2017. After that, all channels will essentially be category B channels including IFC and H2. Bell Media tried unsuccessfully to convert many of there category A licenses early however were denied. Category A licenses aren't worth anything any more.

    So, you want Treehouse TV to bring back all of your old Treehouse shows to the newly revamped schedule instead of launching Treehouse Retro please???

    I for one don't see any proof or evidence of a TreeHouse retro launching and highly doubt that Sundance Channel Canada is changing. And before we heard this bogus story of Treehouse Two and now this Treehouse retro which I don't even think Corus is ever thinking of launching. But now that Corus was approved purchase of Shaw I wonder if this will mean some channel rebrandings...Like Deja View for instance That needs a facelift as their same lineup has made the channel anything but boring. Guess we'll just have to wait and see. But Treehouse retro this is a SPAM and I know deep in my heart is not True. I'd rather see Teletoon Retro back again.

    Where's the "official Press Release" from Corus stating this? Is even the Sundance US Channel even licensed for Canada by the CRTC?Is there any truth to this? Just like Treehouse II? I highly dought this will happen. Sundance may re-brand itself into something else , but I can't see it being Treehouse Retro? I believe it when I see it, then and only then when it up and operating will I believe it.

    There isn't and never was one. Look at the posting history of the person who started this thread (and some other very similar ones). Everything he or she posted on this board was falsely claiming that something was real, when it never existed anywhere except in their own imagination.
