  • TORONTO — CBC said Monday it plans to launch a paid version of a new CBC TV app that will let viewers watch programs without ads.

    The broadcaster said in a memo that the new app, which will also be available for free in an ad-supported version, will allow users to live stream CBC TV, watch episodes on demand on the same day they’re released, see ad-free children’s programing and see series not aired on the network.

    “It is our hope that this new offering will entice an increasing portion of our audience to spend even more time with us each month,” said Heather Conway, executive vice-president of CBC’s English services, in the memo.

    CBC said that starting Tuesday, all of its 14 regional linear channels will be live-streamed, and audiences will also be able to sign in with a CBC account to access more features.

    The broadcaster said it will cost $4.99 for the ad-free, premium version of the new CBC TV app.

    It says the app is part of its expanding offerings to new digital platforms as customers get more of their content from digital services such as Netflix.

    CBC says more than 1.1 million unique visitors used the CBC TV digital service in November.

  • TORONTO — Ontario Liberal Leader Kathleen Wynne began the third and final televised debate of the provincial election campaign with a hashtag-worthy phrase: “Sorry not sorry.”

    Wynne’s approval ratings plummeted below 20 per cent as premier, and her party is trailing in a distant third in the polls.

    Speaking in Toronto this evening, she says she’s “genuinely sorry” that more people don’t like her, but she’s not sorry about what she has done to make life in Ontario better.

    NDP Leader Andrea Horwath and Progressive Conservative Leader Doug Ford used their opening statements to stress their main messages: Horwath’s change for the better, and Ford’s government for the people.

    Ford and Horwath sparred in response to the first question about trust, with Ford slamming the NDP leader over an error in the party’s platform that means it will cost $1.4 billion more per year than expected.

    Horwath shot back that Ford hasn’t even unveiled a platform, suggesting that’s disrespectful to voters given that advanced polls have already opened.
