Bell's A network renamed CTV Two

Bell Media announced Monday that it will change the name of its A network to CTV Two this fall. The change will coincide with the launch of the network in high definition, and its expansion into the full Toronto extended market next year.
The move will affect local stations serving Vancouver, Toronto, southwestern Ontario, Ottawa and Atlantic Canada, including the conversion of A News outlets in these markets under the CTV News banner. CTV is also moving forward with plans to add a re-broadcast transmitter in southern Ontario in 2012. Extending the reach of the current transmitter in Barrie, Ont., the move will create a larger simulcast opportunity for advertisers in the Toronto/Hamilton extended market, subject to CRTC approval. The new CTV Two schedule will include eight new programs to the network, seven in simulcast.
