I reckon they'll start with a national (re: provincial) news operation out of Montreal (at CTV Montreal?), a parliamentary bureau in Ottawa using CTV's resources, stringers for regional Quebec, and dub any CTV News stories from across the country in French. Bell would probably have bigger issues to take care of before they get to news. Does anyone think a re-naming of the network might be in the works? I could see them literally take the green triangle 'V' from the CTV logo and use that as the logo. As for the news, you are correct. Currently, they offer a program called 'NVL'. Here's the description from their website (translated from French) "News in a dynamic newsletter that offers you a different and effective way to keep you informed about local and national news." The program itself is a 30-minute show broadcast twice a day with news read by an unseen announcer with music underneath. They seem to have some videographers - the show is produced out of house by a company called Attraction Images. At one point, the news output was produced by staff at a company called '@DN5' - they produced 5-minute inserts. They were also a company that supplied news and advertising content to out-of-home locations such as malls and other publicly-displayed screen so this is a step up. They did also do local content but that seems to be gone now. V did have a morning program previously but now it seems to be filled with 3 and a half hours of nature scenes, or as it's known "slow TV" https://noovo.ca/articles/5-raisons-dintegrer-la-slow-tv-a-votre-vie Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
