Green Channel expected to be back on air this week
The independent Category 2 digital service Green Channel is expected to return to the airwaves this week. The channel has been unavailable "due to technical difficulties" for three weeks, according to a message that appears on the screen as management sought new investors. "We’re refinancing and we’ll probably be back on air this week," says Linda Rankin, executive VP and general manager of WETV, which runs the Green Channel. Rankin says the channel got new investors and is in the process of going through the paperwork with the CRTC. With the new investment, which comes from Canadian sources, Rankin says that new programming that should hopefully reinvigorate the channel will be introduced.
