Corus Entertainment’s content will include episodes of lifestyle programming from W Network experts while E1 Entertainment brings feature film titles such as “Trailer Park of Terror” and “Steel Trap.”
Rogers said it would be announcing additional content partnerships for On Demand Online ranging from lifestyle shows to popular TV series and feature films.
