Lethbridge previously received CBC Television from a rebroadcaster of CBRT in Calgary, and Radio-Canada from a rebroadcaster of CBXFT in Edmonton. However, these repeaters--along with all of the CBC's owned-and-operated rebroadcasters--went off the air on August 31, 2012. Most Lethbridge residents didn't lose access to CBC or Radio-Canada programming, however, as they are still carried on cable.

The cable television provider in Lethbridge is Shaw Cable. Network programming from the United States is received on cable via affiliates from Spokane, Washington, which is in the Pacific Time Zone. This means American prime time shows on weekdays run from 9PM–12 midnight. Also, except for PBS, HDTV network programming is from Seattle. On digital cable, U.S. network programming (in standard resolution) is available from Detroit in the Eastern Time Zone. Prime time shows on weekdays run from 6PM-9PM.
