I am going to do this again. A Canada-specific thread is needed due to CRTC Canadian Content and media ownership issues that are specific to Canada. No more "ccg3332" is a sock puppet of "huhe888" crap, please. We are different people. "ccg3332" is obviously European, whereas I am American of Chinese descent. --- Canadasoccertv (on Twitter) is reporting that beIN SPORT LLC (USA) has blown away the incumbents Maple Leaf Sports Entertainment (MLSE) and Score Media for the Canadian video rights to La Liga and Serie A in August 2012-May 2015 within the past 45 days. Coupled that with the English-language rights to Ligue 1, and a Canadian partner can launch beIN SPORT 1 Canada as a reasonably close copy of beIN SPORT 1 USA, but with Canadian advertising. Knowing that the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunication Commission (CRTC) requires a Canadian media company to hold majority equity ownership of a pay sports TV channel before the CRTC will issue an operating licence, beIN SPORT LLC must partner with a Canadian company in order to launch beIN SPORT 1 Canada. In my opinion, the most likely scenario is for beIN SPORT LLC (USA) to partner with TeleLatino Network in Toronto to rebrand EuroWorld Sport into beIN SPORT 1 Canada. EuroWorld Sport's programming lineup in the next 9 months have been completely gutted by either beIN SPORT LLC (Serie A, Ligue 1) and Rogers Media (UEFA Europa League) so its only live event programming for now will be the FIFA events via sublicense from CBC. The less likely option is for beIN SPORT LLC (USA) to partner with Shaw Media to launch beIN SPORT 1 Canada using the CRTC licence for the defunct FOX Sports World Canada (which has not been revoked yet by the CRTC.) I do not believe that Rogers Media or Bell Media are likely partners, as beIN SPORT LLC (USA) is expected to challenge the Roger Media (Sportsnet, Sportsnet ONE, Sportsnet World) - Bell Media (TSN, TSN2, ESPN Classic Canada, RDS, RDS2, RDS Info) - Quebecor Media (TVA Sports) consortium for the Canadian rights to English Premier League for August 2013-May 2016.
