Citytv has signed an affiliate agreement with Saskatchewan Communications Network (SCN), the broadcast networks announced Thursday. The networks said the agreement is part of “an aggressive pursuit to increase presence in key markets across Canada.” Starting Jan. 2, Citytv will air from 3 p.m. to 5:59 a.m. Central Standard Time every day as “Citytv on SCN.” For the remainder of the day, the station will air as SCN with commercial-free educational and children's programming. "Early on, we identified Saskatchewan as one of the key markets in which we sought to expand our footprint. This deal allows us to deliver our world-class programming to the entire province and extend the popular Citytv brand," Scott Moore, president of broadcasting at Rogers Media, said in a statement. Citytv is owned by Rogers Communications Inc. "Having a dedicated Citytv presence in Saskatchewan gives viewers a more consistent and reliable viewing experience. It also offers the people of Saskatchewan great Canadian programming, which cannot be found on U.S. networks,” Moore said. The Citytv on SCN lineup will air Citytv's national programming with shows such Terra Nova, New Girl, Modern Family, 30 Rock, Alcatraz, Canada's No. 1 daytime program, CityLine, and Canada's Got Talent, which debuts in March, the broadcaster said. Local Saskatchewan SCN programming will air after 3 p.m. in mid-2012 and into the fall television season, featuring programs such as The Neighbors Dog, 15 Minutes of Fame, and documentaries. SCN, Saskatchewan's provincial educational broadcaster, will make no changes to its educational, children's or local programming from 6 a.m. to 2:59 p.m., a release said. SCN will continue to operate out of Regina with its current management team and employees.
