The deal also delivers one of television’s most-acclaimed dramas, “Homeland,” starring Claire Danes and winner of eight Emmy Awards, to CraveTV as part of its SHOWTIME Collection launching later this month. With Season 3 currently airing on Bravo, Tuesdays at 10pm, all 24 episodes of the critically acclaimed first and second seasons of “Homeland” will be available on CraveTV, with additional seasons to arrive on board in the future.

“These Fox series represent some of the very best in serialized storytelling available and confirm CraveTV’s status as the home of premium television in Canada,” said Mike Cosentino, Senior Vice-President of Programming at Bell Media, in a press release.

Evan Scheffel, SVP Worldwide Pay TV and SVOD, Twentieth Century Fox Television Distribution, added, “The availability of past seasons on CraveTV is an excellent way to expand the audience reach for some of Fox’s strongest programming now available on linear television.  We are very pleased to further our relationship with Bell Media through this content licensing agreement.”
