Not yet at least

Claude J. Pelletier, editor in chief of Protoculture Addicts has informed us that TechTV Canada (available on cable and satellite TV like Bell ExpressVu) will not carry Anime Unleased.

Tech TV Canada informed Claude that, “At the present time we will not be airing the anime program, however our Programming Department is constantly reviewing our schedule based on our viewer's feedback. Your comments do help us to evaluate our programming.”

Very few channels show anime in Canada. YTV is showing a few anime, and canadians can get some more through the American Networks such as FOX and ABC, but most of the better shows in the USA are shown on Cartoon Network which is not allowed in Canada because of CRTC rules. Now, Anime is being shown on a US station that has a Canadian sister channel, but the latter is not showing it.

Claude suggests that anime-starved Canadian fans should let TechTV Canada know that they would like to see those anime shows. Tech TV Canada can be contacted at the following co-ordinates:
