Food Network Canada was launched in October 2000; TV Food Network was removed from the list of eligible foreign services to broadcast in Canada and was replaced with Food Network Canada.

Food Network - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (513 words)
Television Food Network, normally referred to as Food Network, is a New York-based cable network that airs many specials and recurring (episodic) shows about food, food preparation, at-home entertaining, and restaurants.
Food Network can be seen internationally in Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Korea, Thailand, Singapore, the Philippines, Monaco, Andorra, France, and the French-speaking territories in the Caribbean and Polynesia.
Scripps acquired the Food Network from the A.H. Belo Corporation in 1997, which had acquired the network through a takeover of the Providence Journal Company earlier that year.
Decision CRTC 2000-217 (3185 words)
Food Network Canada is the result of an agreement dated 5 August 1999 among AACI, Corus Entertainment Inc. (Corus) and Television Food Network G.P. (TVFN), setting out the equity position of the parties in the company to be incorporated and the relationship among them after incorporation (the Letter of Agreement).
Nevertheless, in the absence of sufficient analog channel capacity on cable networks, and thus the Commission’s continuing concern for undue preference, it is not prepared to permit the ownership interest in the licensee company held by Corus or by any affiliate of Corus to increase beyond the threshold of 10%.
Food Network Canada will be licensed as a discretionary service, on a modified dual status basis.
