Owned by Newcap Radio, it is sister to CTV affiliate CITL-DT and both stations share studios located on 50 Street and 51 Avenue on the Alberta side of Lloydminster. On Shaw Direct, the channel is available in high definition on channel 019 (Classic) or 519 (Advanced). This station can also be seen on Shaw Cable channel 5.
CKSA clears the vast majority of the CBC network schedule, the only usual exceptions being some overnight programming, as the station signs off each night after 3 a.m., then returns to the air with paid programming between 4:30 and 6 a.m.
CKSA-TV was also broadcast on CKSA-TV-3 channel 8 in Wainwright and CKSA-TV-4 channel 12 in Provost, until they ceased operations on August 31, 2011. It was also rebroadcast on CBCS-TV-1 channel 8, an analog rebroadcaster of CKSA-DT in Meadow Lake, Saskatchewan owned by the CBC; this repeater closed on July 31, 2012, as part of the CBC's austerity measures to keep the corporation solvent and in operation.
