Transcontinental ends 61-year run for TV Guide Canada, but listings to continue

MONTREAL - Transcontinental is ending the 61-year run of TV Guide Canada, but will continue to digitally publish its weekly television listings.

The Quebec-based company says the change, which took effect Wednesday, has resulted in the elimination of one full-time editorial position.

TV Guide Canada started publishing in 1953 and was spun off from the U.S. weekly magazine TV Guide in 1977.

Transcontinental Media (TSX:TCL.A) acquired it from Telemedia in 2000. It subsequently underwent a string of changes and by 2005 it was reduced from six regional editions to two — one for Eastern Canada and one for Western Canada.

Aside from special editions, the print version was cancelled entirely in 2006 when TV Guide Canada became available online only.

In December 2012, tvguide.ca was incorporated into Bell Canada's lifestyle and entertainment webmagazine, The Loop.
