Encyclopedia > TVA (television network)

TVA is a private commercial Canadian French-language television network based in Quebec. Owned by Quebecor Média, it only has affiliates in Quebec, although the affiliates in Rivière-du-Loup and Carleton have rebroadcast transmitters in New Brunswick. Since 1998, it has been available on cable across Canada. It is widely considered to be the French language counterpart of CTV. In fact, its logo is similar to CTV's, although the two networks have never been jointly owned. Image File history File links Tva-logo. ...

TVA is short for Téléviseurs associés or Télédiffuseurs associés, depending on the source. However, only the initials are used on-air.

Overview

TVA traces its roots to 1963, when CJPM-TV in Chicoutimi, a station only a few months old and in need of revenue, began sharing programs with the biggest privately-owned francophone station in Canada, CFTM-TV in Montreal. They were joined by CFCM-TV in Quebec City in 1964 after CFCM lost its CBC affiliation. While the three stations shared programs for many years, it wasn't until 1971 that the informal link became a proper network, TVA, with CFTM as the flagship station. The network began the first private French-language network news service in Canada in 1972. Between 1973 and 1983, seven more stations joined the network. 1963 (MCMLXIII) was a common year starting on Tuesday (link will take you to calendar). ... CJPM is a television station. ...

When the network was formally organized in 1971, it was operated as a cooperative owned by its affiliates, much like CTV operated for many years. In 1982, the cooperative became a corporation with the station owners as shareholders. A cooperative (also co-operative or co-op) is an association of persons who join together to carry on an economic activity of mutual benefit. ... 1982 (MCMLXXXII) is a common year starting on Friday of the Gregorian calendar. ...


For many years, TVA's programming was very similar to what Global offers today in that it didn't have what could be called a main schedule aside from news. For instance, Pathonic Communications, which owned the TVA affiliates in Quebec City, Sherbrooke, Trois-Rivières, Rimouski and Rivière-du-Loup; offered programming that was radically different from that offered on CFTM. The differences were enough that Sherbrooke's CHLT-TV, whose over-the-air signal reaches Montreal, was carried on Montreal cable systems. However, in 1989 Télé-Metropole, which owned CFTM and CJPM, bought out Pathonic and changed its name to Groupe TVA Inc., a subsidiary of cable company Vidéotron. The other station owners sold the outstanding shares of the network in 1992. Nine years later, Quebecor became owner of TVA. The Global Television Network (more commonly called Global) is a major English-language television network in Canada, owned by CanWest Global Communications. ...

TVA also owns Le Canal Nouvelles, Canada's only private French-language headline news channel. When TVA completes its broadcast day, the TVA stations simulcast LCN until TVA's next broadcast day begins. As well, the company owns a magazine publishing division unit, a film production and distribution house, and a number of other Internet and cable properties, many of which are often used to cross-promote TVA series and events. Le Canal Nouvelles (LCN) is a private French language Quebec 24-hour television news network owned by Quebecor Média, and broadcasting from its headquarters in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. ...


In 1998, the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission made it compulsory for all cable systems in Canada to carry a TVA station, in order to give Canada's francophone minority communities a second French-language programming choice. The station offered is usually the network's flagship, CFTM. Some cable companies in Ontario and New Brunswick carried the affiliates from Gatineau, Rouyn-Noranda or Rivière-du-Loup long before TVA carriage became mandatory, and these companies have mostly continued to carry their existing affiliates rather than switching to CFTM. 1998 (MCMXCVIII) is a common year starting on Thursday of the Gregorian calendar, and was designated the International Year of the Ocean. ...

CFTM also provides a time-shifted feed for British Columbia cable companies.

In 2004, TVA, in partnership with fellow Quebecor subsidiary Sun Media acquired CKXT-TV in Toronto, once known as Toronto One and now known as "Sun TV." The company's first English-language television station, it will continue to be run as an independent station, not as a TVA affiliate, but it is the process of a major programming shift. In early 2005, TVA confirmed to The Globe and Mail that they will continue to look for other expansion opportunities in English Canada. 2004 (MMIV) was a leap year starting on Thursday of the Gregorian calendar. ...

Although TVA is a full-fledged network, its network feed is basically a retransmission of CFTM. While this allows TVA to air more network programming than any other Canadian network, it also means that CFTM can't interrupt its programming for news or weather bulletins in Montreal without interrupting the entire network as well.


For many years, TVA has been more popular than Télévision de Radio-Canada, the French-language counterpart of CBC Television. All but 10 of the 50 popular television shows in Quebec come from TVA. Télévision de Radio-Canada, often simply Radio-Canada, is the main French language television service of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. ... Current CBC Television logo. ...
