Bell Media’s The Movie Network, HBO Canada and CraveTV have come together as the all-new Crave.
For the first time ever, current HBO programming, including new episodes of Game of Thrones, are available directly to all Canadians with access to the internet. The all-new Crave is available through participating TV providers today and directly to consumers as of November 5 on Crave.ca, iOS and Android. Crave becomes available on additional platforms in the coming weeks, including the ability to subscribe directly via the Crave app on iPhone, iPad and Apple TV. The pay-TV service The Movie Network rebrands as Crave.
Crave’s entertainment offering is home to HBO, Showtime, Hollywood movies, VICE programming, kids’ content, including from WOW! Unlimited Media, and thousands of hours of TV series and original shows.
“We’re excited to present one of the best entertainment offerings in North America, delivering thousands of hours of prestige programming at an unbeatable value,” said Randy Lennox, president of Bell Media. “Crave is immediately positioning itself as the leading option in Canada’s increasingly competitive streaming and SVOD market.”
“As HBO continues to create ground-breaking content, movies are bringing in record-breaking pay-TV audiences, and family-friendly titles continue to be some of the most popular On Demand and SVOD selections,” said Tracey Pearce, president of distribution and pay at Bell Media. “This is the content Canadians crave, and we’re delivering it on whatever platform they want.”
