CFKM-DT is the V owned-and-operated television station in Trois-Rivières, Quebec, Canada. It broadcasts a high-definition digital signal on UHF channel 34 (or virtual channel 16.1 via PSIP) from a transmitter on Rue Principale in Notre-Dame-du-Mont-Carmel.

Owned by V Media Group, a Remstar company, the station operates as a de facto semi-satellite of Montreal sister station CFJP-DT and its studios are located on Boulevard Saint-Jean/Route 40 in Trois-Rivières. This station can also be seen on Cogeco channel 5.


The station went to air on September 7, 1986. It was originally launched by Cogeco as a private affiliate of TQS, which was then owned by Jean Pouliot. It became an O&O of the network in 2001 when Cogeco became the network's primary owner. The station was part of V's proposed takeover by Remstar. Since the rebranding of the TQS network on August 31, 2009, CFKM dropped all non-network programming and became a de facto semi-satellite of Montreal owned-and-operated station CFJP-TV.

Digital television[edit]

CFKM shut down its analog signal on channel 16 in early July 2011 and began broadcasting in digital at the same time. The station is first in Canada to complete the digital transition.

Through the use of PSIP, digital television receivers will display CFKM's virtual channel as 16.1.
