TCM Canada Schedule

63 posts in this topic

Yes, CineTFO airs great films. Basically, it's the French-language version of TVO's "Saturday Night at the Movies" for people in Ontario, Canada.

 

CineTFO has a magazine, different themes - world cinema, great directors, etc., commentary either before or after the films, etc....

And films are aired commercial-free.

 

Recently watched many films as part of a Rainer Werner Fassbinder theme - "Lili Marleen," "Effi Briest," "The Marriage of Maria Braun," and "Berlin Alexanderplatz," for examples (and all with the excellent Hanna Schygulla).

Also the French classic "Le Rouge et le Noir" (1954): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Le_Rouge_et_le_Noir_%281954_film%29

 

The film guide (magazine) is available here (covering June to September 2014 and in French):

<< TCM Canada:  keeping Canadians from seeing To Be or not to Be since 2007. >>

 

No idea, Skimpy. We'd need to hear from TCM "rights guy" Lee Tsiantis:

http://selfstyledsiren.blogspot.ca/2010/02/matter-of-rights-talk-with-lee-tsiantis.html

 

Also want to mention Hollywood Suite in Canada:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hollywood_Suite

 

I don't subscribe to it as part of my cable TV package, so don't watch it, but it airs many classic Hollywood movies in Canada:
http://hollywoodsuite.ca/movies/

 

And "classic" films it airs in Canada here:

Ok, I understand why TCM can't show certain movies in Canada due to access right issues,  but one would think TCM's staff would be able to find out which movies they can show, months in advance,  so there wouldn't be last minute changes to the Canadian schedule.

I don't know? Have to figure out a monthly percentage (percentage of regular schedule Canadians get to see), I guess, and track it month to month... Somebody on the Internet used to do that years ago... Really... :o

 

No complaints from me, just FYI for anyone who cares (U can see the Canuck schedule on the TCM website:

http://www.tcm.com/schedule/canada/

; and the monthly guide "Now Playing": https://secure.palmcoastd.com/pcd/eServ?iServ=MDI2MzE1ODA5NA==

notes films that won't air in Canada - but not the replacement films for Canadians).

 

"Guns for San Sebastian" looks good on Oct. 13/14 at 2:00 a.m. EST:

 

 

And note my spelling mistake on the October schedule - it's "San Sebastian" and not my "San Sebastion." :P

 

One more thing. Canuckleheads did get "The Deep Six" with Alan Ladd...

The more we complain, the worse the problem seems to get.

Apparently. I have to admit I don't read this thread regularly-- have other months had as many substitutions as October? In other words, is this the norm?

I'm never going to read this thread again. What's the point of tormenting myself?

 

I've bookmarked the Canadian schedule and will no longer look at the U.S. one - to do so only makes me see what I can't have, and it's a very unpleasant feeling.

I'll try and maintain the percentage coverage... My figures show an 84% match for October between the US and Canuck schedules...

That means Canucks get 16% different films than Yanks and that those below the 49th get 16% different flicks than us up here in The Great White North.

The other guy on another site on the Internet who did this got in the 80's... So that may be the norm...

I'll try and do the monthly percentage from now on... :o

October 6

 

Interesting to notice the schedule for Canadians does include “To Be or Not to Be” (1942).

This could change ‘tho between now (September 7) and October 6??? Maybe not??

 

 

Yes, it did change. No "To Be or Not to Be" at 12:30 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 6, for Canucks. Instead we get 1940's "Vigil in the Night."

Some of these substitutions are improvements. THE UNSUSPECTED is very good and certainly not shown as much as the overplayed TO BE OR NOT TO BE. FOREIGN CORRESPONDENT and ARSENIC AND OLD LACE are definitely overplayed, too. Then there's PORTRAIT OF JENNIE which has been shown at least a half dozen times this year, if not more.

 

Yes, Canadian viewers are being saved from some of the usual suspects. It's the U.S. viewers that are forced to sit through the programmers' favorites again and again.

The large majority of the Canadian substitutions on this list would be preferable to me to the U.S. films offered.

Very solid point TB.   Just goes to show that one needs to be nuanced when they complain about TCM programming (either US or Canadian).     Also,  the rule of 'be careful what you wish for' often applies as well.
