Now that we have Fox News on Telus, kindly advise when Telus will able to broadcast FBN the most watched business network in total day and primetime.  Fox Business have a very entertaining & informative morning lineup consisting of Mornings with Maria Bartoromo,   Stuart Varney & Co,  Neil Cavuto &  Charles Payne.   BNN Bloomberg & CNBC are definitely not as entertaining as FBN.  

 
Also please note Fox Business is way ahead of  CNN and MSNBC in ratings within the USA

CRTC approved FOX BUSINESS CHANNEL for distribution in Dec 2016.

 

TELUS needs to add this channel to their lineup. 

 

 

Following is the revised List of non-Canadian programming services and stations authorized for distribution as of 20 December 2016. Only those services and stations appearing on the most recent list are authorized for distribution. 

 

 

Fox Business Network

Fox News

FOX Sports Racing

Telus needs to add Fox Business Network the most watched business network in total day and primetime.  Fox Business has a very entertaining & informative morning lineup consisting of Mornings with Maria Bartiromo,    Stuart Varney & Co,  Neil Cavuto &  Charles Payne.   Sure this may be a conservative leaning US business channel however their business personalities are far superior to the mundane folks on CNBC.

Just because the CRTC has approved a channel, doesn't mean much. Seeing posts that read like a full blown advertisement doesn't feel like a genuine consumer requesting a channel.

 

  • The CRTC actually approved Fox Business Network channel back in 2009 at the request of Rogers. Rogers no longer offers Fox Business Network.
  • The CRTC actually last updated Fox Business Network as authorized for distribution as of December 20, 2018, not December 2016.

 

And the single biggest point to note:

  • At present, not one single provider in Canada offers the Fox Business Network. The demand is very likely just not there, especially if even Rogers dropped the channel they helped bring to Canada a decade ago.
