25% of Canadian households do not subscribe to cable or satellite TV. These individuals rely on

“rabbit ear” antenna for television broadcast reception.

Over-the-air TV broadcasting is mainly an issue for nationwide networks who all rely on some

approximately 336 emitting towers across the land. These towers are owned and operated by CBC.

The major TV networks operating in English across Canada are: CBC, CTV, Global, City & Omni.

The major TV networks operating in French across Canada or some just in Quebec are: Radio-Canada,

TVA & V. APTN is an Aboriginal TV network broadcasting over-the-air in the three territories.

There are well over 300 Specialty channels available in Canada all of which can only be viewed through

Cable or Satellite TV subscription.

Analog broadcasting to Digital TV. Remainder of the country is still receiving over-the-air analog

TV broadcast.
