Casa (stylized CASA) is a Canadian French language Category B specialty channel dedicated to the home including home and garden renovations and design, cooking, and real estate. It is owned by TVA Group, a division of Quebecor Media.

History[edit]

On October 21, 2005 Groupe TVA was granted a broadcasting licence by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) for a channel called Télé-Services, described as "a national, French-language Category 2 specialty programming undertaking offering programming devoted to manual labour such as construction, renovations, repairs, gardening, landscaping, decorating, interior design, mechanics and hobbies."[1]

The channel was launched on February 19, 2008 as Les idées de ma maison télé, named after Quebecor Media's home magazine, Les idées de ma maison.[2]

On October 18, 2010, Les idées de ma maison was renamed "Casa",[3] the Spanish word for "house", while still focusing on the same genre of programming.

Casa HD[edit]

Casa's Facebook page announced that the channel would launch a high definition feed on December 14, 2011.[4] The channel was launched on December 14.
