CH to become E! Canada in Sept.

TORONTO (CP) _ The popular E! network is coming to Canada. CanWest MediaWorks announced Tuesday that it has entered into an agreement with E! Networks in the United States to bring the entertainment channel north of the border.

CanWest’s CH network will be rebranded as E! on Sept. 1, the company says.

It will be available on multiple platforms including broadcast, online, mobile, video-on-demand and satellite radio. Canadian content will be combined with the E! offerings from the U.S., like the popular "E! True Hollywood Story."

CanWest’s deal with E! features a commitment to develop and co-produce Canadian content programming for the network, the company says. That initiative will be supported by a development fund.

The Canadian E! menu will feature a mix of prime-time network programming and will add the extensive library of E! content during daytime, late prime time and weekends.

"We are very confident that the powerful combination of the E! brand and content, alongside our Canadian and local programming, will resonate strongly with Canadian audiences," Kathleen Dore, president of Canadian Television at CanWest MediaWorks, said in a statement.

She referred to the launch of E! in Canada as CanWest’s "second conventional television network" alongside Global-TV.
