MATV (sttylised as MAtv) is the brand of community channels owned by Vidéotron, a division of Quebecor, many of which share common programs.

MATV broadcasts only in communities served by Vidéotron in Quebec, Canada, and features locally produced programming.

Until November 19, 2012, MATV was previously known as Canal Vox or VOX (Voice Channel, representing the community "voice"). On that day at 6PM, VOX was relaunched as MATV; the service will focus more on view-submitted programming.[1]

On September 5, 2013, Vidéotron announced that they filed an application to the CRTC for permission to launch an English-language version of the channel, MYtv. The new channel, similar in format to MATV, will focus on Greater Montreal's anglophone communities. Vidéotron intends on only having one MYtv channel, which will serve Greater Montreal, but may make that channel available in other Vidéotron service areas with a sizable anglophone population.[2][3]
