TORONTO (February 23, 2015) – #BraceYourself Canada. As announced last night during THE OSCARS® broadcast on CTV, Bell Media’s eagerly anticipated SHOWTIME Collection is available today exclusively on CraveTV™, immediately adding hundreds of hours of some of the most acclaimed, star-studded premium programming available anywhere, including Season 1 of the Golden Globe® Award winner for Best Drama, THE AFFAIR.

In total, more than 600 titles and 400 hours of distinctive SHOWTIME programming are available – check out CraveTV.ca for the complete list.
