    Notes:
    - Yoopa & Zeste hasn't launched yet. It was confirmed in Zeste's press release that it will be carried by BellTV, so it ain't missing.
    - French conventional High-Def, both are missing some local channels: Quebec's SRC, and direct-to-BDU V (Quebec, Sherbrooke), and Quebec's TVA station.
    - English conventional High-Def, neither carries direct-to-BDU CTV's CFCF and CJOH. Global Montreal was added in december. Search the forum, it was mentionned.
    - As for Multicultural, Rogers carries at least 75 of them, while Bell carries like 30.

    I know they haven't launched yet but as far as I know neither provider has announced that they will be carrying them. I was not aware Bell will be adding Zeste, thought only Videtron had agreed to carry them?! I will update the list once the channel launches.

    As for Multicultural, Rogers carries at least 75 of them, while Bell carries like 30.
    My list is just a comparison of the two satellite providers not cable. I am aware that Rogers is the leader (by far) for multicultural channels.

    As for the locals, I have placed a little more emphasis on the specialties but I can add more to the locals section of each if people would like to see that expanded?!

    I don't know why Shaw doesn't get CNN HD, PBS W HD and Spike HD, there must be a high demand for these channels.

    Interesting,

    The Bell TV technical site (bellsrdu.ca) does not list it on their channel lineup page or at least I cannot seem to find it- what is the channel#?!

    Told ya earlier that Global Quebec was there... and to search the forum! ;)

    Hint #1: http://www.viewers.ca/discuss/showthread.php?t=3257 post #4
    Hint #2: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Bell_TV_channels (search CKMI)

    Also missing from your lists: History Television HD (missing on both) and Big Ten Network HD (missing on BellTV)

    WFN HD is distributed in the US, but not in Canada.
    And which provider(s) carries WildTV HD already?

    Okay, Okay I found it on the TV guide on Bell's website- happy now?! :D

    History Television HD is available on Shaw Direct, not on Bell TV (added to the list). Big Ten Network HD has been added as well.

    Wild TV HD is available on Sasktel.

    don't understand that we don't have ctv ottawa. we should be able to have it we pay for local tv. it is a shame of bell tv not to have cjoh.

    Under CRTC rules, satellite providers do not have to carry every station from every province. They are required to have at least one station from each network from each province. Thus for your list above, Shaw carries Global Saskatoon and CTV Regina so they have at least one station from Saskatchewan.
