Canadian Television Networks, Services and Stations
There are a number of television networks and Specialty channels available in Canada, many of which carry American programming. The first tier of national TV networks in Canada include CTV, Global, TVA and CityTV. The government-owned CBC operates two broadcast networks: CBC Television and la Télévision de Radio-Canada, operating in English and French respectively. Both networks are devoted primarily to domestic content.
CBC Television
CBC Television is owned by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and broadcasts news and current affairs, sports, entertainment and children's programming. CBC programming can be seen on some American cable systems. CBC Television launched HD simulcasts of its Toronto and Montreal stations in 2005.
CTV is presently the country's most-watched network and is owned by Bell Media. CTV has remained the country's highest-rated television network since 2002. The network's programming consists mainly of hit American series such as CSI, Greys Anatomy, Mad Men, The Amazing Race and Two and a Half Men, but it airs Canadian-made television shows as well. CTV owns the Canadian broadcast rights to many of the hit American cable series. CTV currently operates three HD simulcasts of its Toronto, Vancouver and Calgary stations.
Global is a private television network owned by Shaw Media Inc. Throughout the 1990s, Global dominated primetime ratings in key Canadian markets, and since 2000 the network has garnered significant reach in other markets. Global broadcasts news, entertainment and sports programming. A number of popular American shows currently airing on Global include: NCIS, Survivor, Family Guy, The Office and Hawaii 5-0. Global launched HD simulcasts of its Toronto and Vancouver stations in 2004. CTV and Global for the most part share broadcasting of popular American television shows.
TVA is a French language network based in Quebec. The network has been available on cable across Canada since 1998. TVA is widely considered to be the French counterpart of CTV. It is owned by Groupe TVA Inc. and currently owns and operates six television stations with four affiliate stations. TVA launched an HD simulcast of its Montreal station in 2007.
The remaining national private networks which have a more limited reach or audience appeal include:
Citytv is a system of local stations which focus on movies and niche-appeal programs in prime time, although the system is gradually adding more broad-appeal series. Citytv is owned by Rogers Communications.
A is a secondary service owned by CTV.
TQS is a French-language network owned by Remstar. Availability in Québec is roughly equal to that of TVA but availability outside of Québec is limited.
APTN is a non-profit Aboriginal service carried primarily via cable.
Omni Television is a system of five multicultural stations owned by Rogers.
