CTV Launches Two New Free VOD Channels


CTV Movies and CTV Throwback are two new digital-only offerings that are now available exclusively on CTV digital platforms in Canada.

The expanded CTV digital universe enables Canadians to stream thousands of hours of uncut movie titles and full TV series for free on, as well as through the CTV app on iOS, Android and the Amazon Fire Stick. New titles will be added each month.

“As the next step in the evolution of the CTV Super Hub, we are proud to announce these two new digital destinations,” said Mike Cosentino, president of content and programming at Bell Media. “We’re putting thousands of hours of additional entertainment at the fingertips of our users for free, expanding our catalog of hit long-form entertainment.”

Stewart Johnston, president of media sales, marketing and TSN at Bell Media, added: “Our advertising partners have told us that they love their access to Bell Media’s content….and they want more of it. These free, ad-supported VOD channels with outstanding catalogs will unlock an exciting new opportunity for Canadian advertisers to connect with audiences on CTV digital platforms.”
