CHMG-TV is a local community channel in Quebec City, Quebec, Canada. It broadcasts on channel 9 and is on Vidéotron cable channel 10. It is known as "Télé-Mag", which is a portmanteau of "television" and "magazine".
Télé-Mag first broadcast in 1987 as cable-only "Télé-Plus 24"; it was renamed "Télé-Mag 24" in 1994. The "24" in the name represented the cable channel position at the time, on channel 24; it has since moved to channel 10.
In August 2003, the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) granted Télé-Mag a low-power terrestrial broadcast licence on channel 9, under the calls CHMG-TV. Broadcasting only at 38 watts, the broadcast station launched on October 20, 2005.
Digital television and high definition
As CHMG-TV's transmitter is low power, it was not subject to the required analogue television shutdown and digital conversion, which took place on August 31, 2011.
