BBC Canada missing


When did Telus drop BBC Canada?  I've had it for over a year and my current bill just arrived and it shows that I only have four channels added and BBC Canada isn't one of them.

Did Telus really drop a channel without any communication?  Did they really let me pay for five channels while only providing four?

BBC Canada wasn't dropped by TELUS. Corus Entertainment, the owner of the channel, shut it down on December 31 2020.

Additionally, in April 2021 the BBC is planning to start up a streaming service in Canada called BBC Select. It won't be available as a TV channel directly but through Amazon Prime and their AppleTV app. There's no clear listing of the content expected to be offered on that service yet.
