Sun News Network reaches two major distribution agreements

Sun News Network is expanding its reach across Canada after securing a couple of major deals.

The all-Canadian channel has secured a long-term spot on Bell TV’s basic satellite television and Fibe packages, and will soon be available for the first time ever to more than 150-thousand East Coast and Northern Ontario customers of Bell Aliant.

“This is a great way to celebrate the third anniversary of Sun News, and we thank our distribution partners at Bell TV and Bell Aliant,” said Sun News Vice President Kory Teneycke in a statement Wednesday.

The agreements follow a CRTC ruling in December that told cable and satellite TV providers to treat all Canadian news channels equally.
