CBC Update on catching up to the UK timeline

I saw a news headline in my inbox tonight regarding the CBC double episode "catch up" that we're seeing. The article is dated about a month ago but it's still relevant. People have been asking how long CBC is going to continue to catch up and how much will they catch up?

This article states that CBC will play catch up until they're pretty much up to date. We don't know if we'll be 100% caught up as the CBC might keep it about a week or so behind the ITV episodes in case of a technical glitch. Fair enough! There's also mention of not suspending Corrie anymore during sporting events, though they may play with the schedule and air it at a different time. “Even if it doesn’t play in its normal timeslot we’ll put it in another timeslot,”

Also fair enough. Most people have vcrs or dvrs these days and CBC also carries it online. They estimate we should be caught up by September. CBC posts the week's episodes on Mondays following the airing of the Sunday omnibus in all regions so you can always catch it there as well. Kudos to CBC for this! An hour a day for the next 8 or 9 months is a lot to keep up with but it's worth it!

They did this in Aussie about a year ago, it was great. Now we're about 2-3 months behind UK

My family in Canada are loving this! Corrie is mega popular there.

Nothing like a good pot of tea and 5 hours of Corrie on a Sunday morning before the rest of the house stirs. No better way to begin the day.

CBC, please let your American audience watch Coronation Street on line. Some of us do not have access to viewing it on a television, our provider does not have CBC in its line up. We would love to stay current. Remember, lots of loyal fans south of your border.

Great news!

I fell behind what is even on the CBC Website that I've taken to watching episodes on Youtube, just so that I have more access. I'm pretty much at the far end of the episodes that are online that I decided I was just going to Youtube the episodes - after hearing the same commercials all the time, I'm thankful for other means - and that in time I hoped that I would slowly catch up with the UK. Obviously now I'm going to have to try and stay on track! I suppose I better go and watch a couple of episodes before I fall even further behind! :)

I agree with "pvgloss" - I'm a Canadian living in the US and would love to see Coronation Street on line!!

Anonymous, thanks for the support. I have been watching on Youtube but one of the uploaders of the episodes stopped posting and I have to search for someone else who is providing them for us. Thanks to xXQGXx, you are a lifesaver for this fan.
