CTV Strikes iTunes Canada Deal

From a CTV media release:

Hit programming from CTV and its specialty channels The Comedy Network and MTV are now available from the iTunes Store in Canada (www.itunes.ca). iTunes becomes the next digital platform for CTV’s original Canadian series, in addition to The CTV Broadband Network and Rogers’ CTV on Demand service. The iTunes deal represents for CTV yet another opportunity for viewers to catch up to episodes already broadcast on CTV.

CTV programs for purchase include Canada’s most-watched comedy series, Corner Gas, international hit Degrassi: The Next Generation, critically-acclaimed series Robson Arms and Gemini Award winner Instant Star.

“I’m very excited about Corner Gas being on iTunes,” said Brent Butt, star of Corner Gas. “Initially I was excited because I thought it meant Corner Gas was going to be turned into a musical. But it turns out I was confused. The show will be available on iTunes just the way we made it, which is also awesome.”

iTunes’ CTV content will allow viewers to catch up to previously-aired episodes and purchase just-broadcast episodes the day after their television premieres:
