MSNBC Canada
MSNBC Canada is a now defunct Canadian category 2 digital cable specialty channel. It was the Canadian equivalent of the American television news service MSNBC, operated by Rogers Communications and co-owned by Rogers, Shaw and MSNBC (NBC/Microsoft), with each party owned a 33.33% voting interest in the service.
Programming included some MSNBC programs, plus repeats of shows from CBC and CPAC, as its way to fulfill its Cancon requirements. They also ran infomercials, which the American service never shows.
As of December 15, 2004, the network and its Canadian content were discontinued and was replaced by the American service.
