Crave (formerly The Movie Network) is a Canadian English language premium cable and satellite television channel that is owned by Bell Media. Launched in 1983 as the national service First Choice, an industry restructuring led to its operations being restricted to Eastern Canada from 1984 to 2016. It resumed national operations in March 2016, when it replaced the similar Movie Central service in Western and Northern Canada.
Crave’s programming also includes original and foreign television series, made-for-cable movies and documentaries, pornographic films, live sports events and occasional stand-up comedy and concert specials.
