    Is the Alias marathon NOT being broadcast on Starchoice??
    I cannot find it on their on-line program guide or their TV guide.
    Does anyone have any extra info that can help me? Please?
    This TV guide has the listings at
    http://search.tv.yahoo.com/tvtitlesearch?p=%2b{alias}+%2blineup%3aPacific+%2butn%3a1009825161/1011034761&s=-$s,utn&lineup=us_Pacific&range=14&title=alias&lineup_tz=America/Los_Angeles&sort=score&srch=true
    but this isn't helping me any.

    Does StarChoice carry ABC Family?

    ABC Family does not have Canadian broadcast rights and as such is not available on any Canadian services... satellite or cable.
    Sorry, no Alias marathon for StarChoice/ExpressVu/cable... or at least until a Canadian channel decides to do it.

    I'm still watching/taping it now. (Watching on and off, anyway...) I'm such a couch potato today! 4 more hours!

    I replied 'on-the-fly' before.. came back and reread my post and thought I'd clarify. It's not actually that ABC does not have the Canadian broadcast rights really, it's that the channel "ABC Family" is not licensed for carriage in Canada and thus is not found on any Canadian satellite or cable network, along with it's Alias Marathon.

    Did anyone else notice that before each episode they ran a cutesy disclaimer saying the show was for Adults and Teen 14+ because it contained coarse language and violence and that children should leave the room. Here's the funny part: they bleeped out the coarse language! Every time anyone said 'son of a bitch' they'd bleep bitch, even though the show originally aired on ABC. Why the disclaimer if they are going to bleep anyway?

    Standard operating procedure for Fox Family/ABC Family, even though presumably there are different s&p folks at the helm. Similar edits were made in Freaks and Geeks.
