CNN set to launch new Canadian channel?

We’ve just got wind of a possible new CNN channel, specific to Canadian viewers. The news comes to us by way of Bell Canada. The cable provider is currently setting up their channel programming information for the upcoming 6 month period, and the company is preparing for the arrival of a brand new network on channel 499. The slot was purchased by Time Warner, which is CNN’s parent group, and the information points to a Canada-specific channel broadcasting news of National importance. No further information is available as of yet, but all signs point to a late 2008, early 2009 launch based on previous channel registration time lines. Wolf Blitzer will have to start brushing up on his Canadian. Wait, you’re telling me they speak the same language we do?

[Thanks, Ash!]
