CFAP-DT is the V owned-and-operated television station in Quebec City, Quebec, Canada. It broadcasts a high-definition digital signal on UHF channel 39 (or virtual channel 2.1 via PSIP) from a transmitter at Édifice Marie-Guyart in Downtown Quebec City.

Owned by V Media Group, a Remstar company, its studios are located on De Vallier Street East and Rue Dorchester in Downtown Quebec City. This station can also be seen on Vidéotron channel 5 and in high definition on digital channel 605.

History[edit]

The station signed on along with sister station CFJP-TV in Montreal in 1986 as part of what was then the TQS network. It was owned by the family of Jean Pouliot, then-owner of CFCF-TV. The A in the callsign stands for Adélard, Pouliot's middle name.

Originally a full satellite of CFJP, it began airing its own programming on September 3, 1989. However, like all other TQS/V stations, it was (and still is) largely a semi-satellite of CFJP. As an owned-and-operated station of the network, CFAP was part of the takeover of TQS by Remstar Corporation.

Digital television[edit]

CFAP-DT ceased broadcasting in analog on August 17, 2011 and signed on to digital on August 27, 2011. Through the use of PSIP, digital television receivers display CFAP-TV's virtual channel as 2.1.
