TORONTO, Jan. 24, 2014 /CNW/ - Since its re-launch in March 2013, Space has been enjoying a meteoric rise in viewers and rankings, data from BBM Canada confirms. In just nine months, Space has jumped five spots to rank #6 on the list of Top 10 Canadian entertainment specialty channels. Among A25-54 it climbed five spots to the #4 position, jumped four spots to #7 with W18-49, and gained five spots to #10 with T12-17. Overall, since March 2013, Space has experienced a 19% growth in total viewers, a 36% growth among F18-34, and a whopping 45% growth among T12-17.*

A big part of Space's success in 2013 can be attributed to its signature series including the globally-acclaimed Space original series ORPHAN BLACK, the iconic DOCTOR WHO, and fan favourite FACE OFF.
