Rogers Communications Inc. temporarily dropped CTVglobemedia Inc. content from its on-demand cable service due to issues related to carriage negotiations, CTV and Rogers say. CTV content became unavailable on Rogers last fall, about the same time that BCE Inc. announced its intention to acquire CTV, but the two developments were unrelated, the companies say. Andrea Goldstein, a spokewoman for CTV, said in an interview that Rogers On Demand stopped offering CTV content on Sept. 2 because the companies' one-year online carriage agreement had expired. BCE announced its intention to acquire CTV on on Sept. 10. Goldstein said the CTV acquisition was unrelated to the drop in carriage, which lasted 38 days. She said Rogers resumed carriage after negotiations closed on Nov. 28. Carly Suppa, a spokeswoman for Rogers, said by email that the negotiations led Rogers to carry an additional 28 shows and series from CTV and CTV-owned A Channels. “We are carrying more CTV content on Rogers On Demand than in previous years,” she said. Suppa added that the negotiations followed standard procedure and were not affected by BCE's acquisition of CTV.
