CTV Drama Channel, formerly known as Bravo, is a Canadian English-language discretionary service channel that is owned by Bell Media.

CTV Drama is a Canadian English-language Category A cable and satellite specialty channel that is owned by Bell Media. The channel was founded as a Canadian version of the U.S. channel Bravo (which is now owned by NBCUniversal), and originally focused on performing arts, drama, and independent film. However, as with its U.S. counterpart, the channel has largely dropped its arts programming, and now focuses primarily on mainstream films and scripted series.
