So they are charging us for shows that are on our federally funded network?

You couldn't pay me to watch most of that lineup.

hit shows from cbc?? :blink:

Well they could use one of the many quality Canadian shows that CTV and Global have, no wait, they dont have any they just syndicate US shows.

Sorry if one network actually tying to promote and improve the Canadian television industry offends you in some way but there many shows on the CBC that are way better than any US made show Ive seen.
