Canadian distribution[edit]

On January 26, 2011, Jewish Life Television was officially added to the CRTC's approved list of foreign services, allowing the channel to expand into Canada. Ethnic Channels Group, who sponsored the application to get JLTV on the approved list, is the official Canadian distributor of the channel.[1]

On July 17, 2014, JLTV officially launched in Canada on Bell Fibe TV.
