There is BBC Canada/America and the BBC is on TV in Korea too. So, why isn't the CBC on TV around the world? English is the big language and people around the world love Canada's scenery.

In this age of electronic globalization, why can't we get TV from other countries?

Two reasons, Canada never had an empire and no one would watch.

Supply and demand. If there is no demand for CBC or CTV outside of Canada, then why bother wasting the money on it?

CBC has a hard enough time getting viewed in Canada. Though I love CBC.

That was a news channel, nothing to compare with the BBC which exports a multitude of programming besides news.

Hockey Night in Canada and the Trailer Park Boys are the only valuable assets which an export audience would be interested in.

Trailer Park Boys, yes.... Hockey Night in Canada? No....

If people outside of Canada want to watch hockey, they'd rather watch the US stations.... with their glowing pucks on the screen and litte animated characters beating each other up on screen after every goal and what not. Apparently the puck is too hard for some people to follow.

Why would anyone want to inflict Don Mumbles and Henry Chump on anyone?

I think Fox dumped the "glow puck" a few years back.

I tried watching one of the games they televised, it was a farce lol
