One Caribbean Television, a 24/7-television network that presents news, lifestyle and entertainment programming about the Caribbean and its people, will provide a “free preview” on Bell Fibe TV, Channel 2481, until the end of next month.
While millions of Canadians are observing the “stay-at-home” restrictions during the current COVID-19 pandemic , the network will bring them the sights and sounds of the Caribbean until they are able to resume travel to the region.
(Roughly four million Canadians travelled to the Caribbean last year.)
Throughout the free preview period, the network will air a special report, COVID-19: Impact on the Caribbean – an in-depth look at how the virus has impacted nearly every aspect of life in the Caribbean.
One Caribbean Television is based in Erie, Pennsylvania and has a close relationship with the Caribbean community in Toronto. For the past five years it has provided live coverage of the Toronto Caribbean carnival.
Popular Trinidadian Canadian DJ and MC Damian Sogren provides on-air special reports from Toronto and the Caribbean.
