Early 1970's - Partnership with Canada's Largest Private Television Broadcasting and Production Companies

It all started in 1968 when one of our predecessor partnered with CTV Inc (formerly known as Baton Broadcasting), one of Canada's largest private television broadcasting and production companies (now known as Bell Media). CTV is Canada's oldest, largest, and most-watched private broadcast television network, including 21 owned and operated stations, a secondary television network, which presently consists of six terrestrial television stations and a cable only channel, and 30 cable television specialty channels.   

Over the years strong partnerships and collaborative relationships were established with some of the largest television broadcasters, production companies and advertisers in the world. Some of the key members of the original management, and advertising and programming production teams involvement in the Open Cable TV Corporation, bring years of experience of being behind thousands of projects including Viva Las Vegas, A Star is Born, The Star Wars Special and many others.  At one point the partnership was producing more Television programming than Universal Studios – working with such names as Paul Newman, Kirk Douglas, Lucille Ball, John Wayne, Michael Jackson, Coca Cola, NBC, Canada Dry, Benelton Corporation, Timex, Monsanto Company, Chevrolet, ABC and numerous others. Many years of producing programming and advertising for Television have created one of the deepest accumulated bodies of knowledge in terms of a competitive advantage of the understanding of  the needs, of the consumers, the television station operations, the needs of the content producers / owners and the cable operators as well as the needs of and the most effective strategies for the advertisers.
