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 Edifice Marie-Guyart in Downtown Quebec City.
Owned by Remstar Corporation, 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.
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.
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.
