Multicultural stations

CFMT was Canada's first free, over-the-air multilingual/multicultural television station. It had launched in 1979; after financial difficulties, Rogers bought the station in 1986. CJMT was launched as a sister station in fall 2002 to provide room for additional multicultural programming; it was at this point that the current "OMNI.1 / .2" nomenclature was adopted.

Former affiliations

Rogers also formerly owned two religious TV stations: CHNU (CHNU 10, Channel 66 in Vancouver, British Columbia) and CIIT (CIIT11, Channel 35 in Winnipeg, Manitoba). Both stations were acquired in 2005 from Trinity Television, and previously used the NOWTV brand. CIIT was launched on February 6, 2006, after Rogers had already bought Trinity Television. On October 31, 2007 CHNU was rebranded as CHNU 10, in order to reduce viewer confusion when the OMNI brand moves to CHNM and CIIT was rebranded as CIIT11 in July 2008 to reflect the new ownership.
