    As expected, we are getting the watered down version of Paramount Network.

    According to Zap2it, the mini-series launching the network, Waco, is not going to be shown on the 'canadian version'... Maybe someone else has the rights here, but haven't heard anything.

    Probably the same story as last summer's "The Mist" : not available on the canadian version, then shows up internationally the day after the finale on Netflix, already dubbed in many languages.

    Thanks for nothing, CRTC.

    CRTC has nothing to do with the content of the channel. NOTHING.

    Whatever an international channel puts on the air, they must be sure they cleared the broadcast rights for Canada, which is why the yearly Star Wars trilogy marathon on Spike was replaced with Pam Anderson's V.I.P. series marathon, without any paying commercials.

    Maybe if they had enough sense they'd just boot the network out of our country.

    Well this channel is even more watered down than Spike TV was. NONE of their new scripted shows have been showing in Canada.

    From Waco that opened the network and a comedy I forgot the name. Now American Woman is not showing and the upcoming Yellowstone seems it is not on the Canadian feed either.
    We get endless repeats of Lipsync Battle , Bar Rescue and Ink Masters instead of original sho ws.

    At least if someone else would pick them up that would be not as bad, but I am not seeing any of those elsewhere. Maybe Netflix but I don't have that.

    If not only for Lip Sync Battle, I would have dropped this channel from my package by now. Not sure for how much longer that show will continue, but once it ends, then out goes my subscription to this channel.
