  • Entertainment Tonight Canada is proud to be the first television show in Canada to offer Facebook users a daily live show with ET Canada LIVE, a 20-25 minute entertainment news show bringing the day’s top headlines to users through the Facebook Live streaming service. During the show, viewers can engage directly with the ET Canada hosts in real time through live comments. Shot and produced in studio, this new offering expands ET Canada’s commitment to delivering in depth reporting and breaking celebrity, film, television, and music news to its audience as-it-happens.

    “With more Canadians on Facebook than any other social network, offering premium programming through Facebook Live is the next step in continuing to engage ET Canada’s audiences,” says Maria Hale, Senior VP of Global Entertainment & Acquisitions. “Through ET Canada LIVE we’re able to dive deeper into topics with our viewers, opening up a two-way dialogue about the entertainment news stories that have Canadians talking.”


    This September ET Canada Live partners with Nespresso to bring fans a daily dose of the Toronto International Film Festival with their morning coffee ritual with ET Canada’s Facebook Live Film Festival Series Presented by Nespresso. The special live series airs Monday, September 12 through Friday, September 15.
