Bell Media (Canada)
Bell Media is a large Canadian broadcasting and television production company, a subsidiary of Bell Canada. The current entity derives from CTV, formerly Baton Broadcasting, and was introduced in 2011, after Bell Canada replaced assets of CTVglobemedia on 1st April 2011. On 16th March 2012, Bell Media announced that Montreal-based Astral Media accepted a takeover bid for an estimated value at $3.38 billion. The deal was finalized on June 27, 2013.

Bell Media (2012)
Logo: We see a close-up view on a big blue "B" letter, standing on a surface. Then we move right and the name zooms out, reading "Bell Media". It also seems to cast a vague reflection on the floor.
FX/SFX: The animation of the zooming name.
Music/Sounds: An engine-like premise followed by three waterdrop ding sounds, which is the same as the CTVglobemedia logo.
Availability: Common. Replaces the CTV logo on The Listener starting from mid-season two, on Flashpoint, The Sanctuary and newer episodes of Degrassi (TeenNick airings don't have that logo). Also appears on The L.A. Complex and the best picture award-winning nominated short minifilm Lay Them Straight.
Editor's Note: None.
