Rogers Inks Deals with NBCU, Warner Bros. Discovery 


Canada’s Rogers Communications has clinched multiyear deals with NBCUniversal and Warner Bros. Discovery for lifestyle and entertainment content.

Starting September 2024, Rogers is launching NBCUniversal’s Bravo channel in Canada and will become the English-language television content rights holder in Canada, featuring unscripted programming that includes new seasons of Bravo’s hit franchise series.

Starting January 2025, Rogers will be the home of Warner Bros. Discovery’s suite of English-language U.S. lifestyle and factual brands, including HGTV, Food Network and more.

The content will also be available on Citytv+.

“Rogers invests to bring Canadians the most coveted sports and entertainment,” said Colette Watson, president of Rogers Sports & Media. “We’re evolving our business to reflect where consumers are going, bringing the best mix of U.S. and Canadian content to audiences in the way they want to watch it. This investment also advances our position as a strong Canadian broadcaster that can compete with foreign streamers.”

“We’re already home to Canada’s #1 sports network, and these partnerships solidify our leadership in entertainment with a diverse media portfolio of TV’s most iconic brands,” added Watson.
