THE NEWS FORUM Launches Nationally on Bell Platforms in Canada

A new Canadian news broadcaster “where all voices matter,” launches nationally on broadcast with a mandate to encourage critical thinking and to celebrate diversity of opinion.

Welland, Ontario, CANADA

TORONTO, Sept. 29, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The News Forum ("TNF") announces today that it is now available on all Bell platforms across Canada. The News Forum is a new Canadian broadcaster dedicated to providing viewers with domestic and international news and commentary. In addition, the new channel has partnered with two Canadian technology companies for master control, distribution, and sales and advertising.

The News Forum believes that Canada’s diverse society is enriched when we engage together on the tough issues facing our nation. Free and democratic countries like Canada are bolstered by a healthy menu of news outlet selections. This issues-based small ‘c’ conservative channel enhances those consumer choices.

The mission of The News Forum is to foster a renewed commitment celebrating true
diversity in how we engage in public discourse. We encourage viewers to take the time to deliberate between different viewpoints and stances, in the hope that reason, healthy compromise, and a true meeting of the minds will prevail.

Nextologies, headquartered in Markham, Ontario, is providing The News Forum's signal and delivery to television providers across Canada. Nextologies boasts the world’s largest
video delivery network specializing in high quality, broadcast grade video connectivity for
broadcasters and content owners internationally.

Ethnic Channels Group ("ECG") CEO Slava Levin remarks: “We are so excited to partner with a news channel with a fresh perspective, providing Canadians with diverse viewpoints. Our
experience in sales and distribution at ECG combined with the innovators in tech at Nextologies
will enable The News Forum to concentrate on their primary purpose, delivering news and
creating compelling programming.”

With a growing market demand for The News Forum programming, the station is thrilled to announce the launch on the Bell platforms with a strong sales partnership with such a hardworking and connected sales team as ECG and a technology partner with the credibility and reach of Nextologies.
