CTV boosts digital offerings with CTV Movies and CTV Throwback

CTV is boosting its online content with the launch of CTV Movies and CTV Throwback, two new free, ad-supported, digital-only offerings available on CTV.ca and the CTV app.

The network says the launch is the first step in CTV’s evolution as a destination for entertainment on digital platforms.

CTV Movies will offer uncut movie titles ranging from classic films like 1953’s From Here to Eternity and Martin Scorsese’s Taxi Driver to action titles like 2012 and Men in Black. Other favourites currently on the site include Groundhog Day, A League Of Their Own, and Sleepless in Seattle. CTV says new film titles will be launched each month.

CTV Throwback features television series spanning the last five decades from all 11 seasons of 1970s/80s sitcom The Jeffersons to more recent series like Community and Rescue Me, in addition to Dawson’s Creek, The Facts of Life, Designing Women and Mad About You.

Current CTV series remain locked to cable subscribers only.
