The new programs are inspired by Atlantic Canadian culture.

In “Kitchen unCovered,” chefs and students at Holland College’s Culinary Institute of Canada in Charlottetown will create mouth-watering dishes with locally-sourced ingredients.

“Our show takes viewers on a flavour rollercoaster with dishes like tasty crab cakes and zesty fennel slaw," said Chef Andrew Nicholson, show host and chef instructor at the institute. "With the broadcasting opportunity of Bell Aliant's Community One channel, we’re able to share the local trade secrets we teach here to bring Island cuisine to life.”

Community One offers local hosts and producers an opportunity to develop locally-flavoured content, while giving them a platform across Atlantic Canada.

The channel already runs nine shows featuring perspectives from around the region with programming created to celebrate local culture and sport stories. 

"Customer response to our exclusive Community One programming has been enthusiastic," says Andre LeBlanc, vice-president of residential markets. “We are proud to support local hosts and producers and give them an opportunity to tell regional stories relevant to our audience here in Atlantic Canada.”

The entire Community One TV content library is available on Video On Demand on FibreOP and Bell Aliant TV. All programming is also free for Bell Aliant TV customers on Channel 1 or online at bellaliant.net/communityone.

The Community One calendar is available at promotions.bellaliant.net/TVschedule.
