Is there any chance of getting the Knowledge Channel in Alberta on Optik TV?

And for those in Vancouver, I see it's on Channel 117?

 

What do you see on channel 117 in Alberta?

Hi XL,

 

We researched this question within the content team and I wanted to provide some quick background on why the Knowledge Network isn't available outside of BC. Here's more information:

 

Knowledge Network’s is a provincial broadcaster who’s content agreements only allows them to offer the channel in BC. Your previous provider must have been a national satellite service, otherwise they would not have been allowed to broadcast the channel outside of BC.

 

We hear your pain, but unfortunately this is outside of our control. However, on a positive note, if you like Knowledge Network content, we will be launching Knowledge Network’s popular Vancouver ER series On Demand, free to all Optik TV subscribers. This series was filmed in Vancouver General Hospital emergency room and shows real life stories from the ER. Find out more at http://er.knowledge.ca/ or watch it On Demand this August.
