What's CPT?[edit]

This is a TV program being distributed by Rogers and Bell in Canada via the CHRGD (aka Family Chrgd) channel. It has a VERY similar name to this. I think the DreamWorks TV redirect to this page ought to be changed into a disambiguation once we have an article for it, because it actually does appear with a space when I view it on Bell, although the Rogers profile does not appear to have the space between the Works and TV. Here is a cite to explain what I mean:

"DreamWorks TV". RogersOnDemand.Com. Archived from the original on 6 March 2016. Season 1
EP 5 Pirates and Party Crashers Aired on 01/16/16
EP 4 Tooth Fairy in Court and Hamsters i... Aired on 01/10/16
EP 3 Unicorns and Kissing Gorillas Aired on 01/09/16
EP 2 Superheroes, Fairies, and Root Beer Aired on 01/03/16

Unfortunately I didn't do this earlier or I probably could have gotten episode 1's title in this too, I imagine some TV tracking guides out there must have it though. These dates only represent when it debuted in Canada, I don't know if there might be an earlier date in other nations.

A video from the site can be seen here:

"DreamWorksTV: Pirates and Party Crashers". 

I think only viewable from a Canadian IP, I tried archiving it using WayBack but it returned a 'not available' error I think because it's based in the US. Not sure if we have an archiveable US distributor for this yet.

Not sure how to tag this in a cite web. It's not exactly subscription/registration locked, it's location locked, do we have a field for that? (talk) 02:25, 6 March 2016 (UTC)

second archive is eps 2-6 (first was 1-5) confirms air dates and order, not updated with more recent ones yet, will check again later

An episode table for these episodes could break down into the individual shorts from the web they contain. Their titles are present in the end credits although usually not visible in the airing of the segment itself.

There is also unique content in each episode consisting of some kid announcing the upcoming works and reacting to them, mostly unimportant but could be covered under credits.

Since some of these are ongoing series, I think a numbering scheme could be multi-faceted. We could number the overall episodes, number the shorts within each episodes, and then number the shorts collectively and then in respect to their individual sub-series.

As I record these Friday I will consult the end credits and add the names of the shorts as sub-bullets. (talk) 10:22, 17 March 2016 (UTC)
