The cable television provider in Edmonton is Shaw Cable. Network programming from the United States is received on cable via affiliates from Spokane, Washington. While prime time in most of Canada runs from 8 pm to 11 pm, American prime time shows on weekdays run from 9 pm to midnight in Edmonton, since Spokane is in the Pacific Time Zone. Although Edmonton is in the Mountain Time Zone, many of the American cities closer to Calgary didn't have full network service until the late 1980s. Edmonton has more than double the population of the Spokane stations' American coverage area. See also Shaw TV Edmonton.
