Stingray Ambiance is a Canadian Category B television channel owned by Stingray Group. The channel primarily broadcasts a rotation of various nature scenery videos with accompanying audio from the nature scene pictured with sometimes non-verbal music added to create a "soothing" atmosphere. During the Christmas and holiday season, the channel will broadcast videos of a crackling fireplace during portions of the day, primarily evening, night, and early morning hours.
On February 20, 2013, Stingray Digital was granted approval from the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) to launch The Seasonal Channel, described as "a national, niche, no spoken word specialty Category B service featuring still pictures and moving video of nature scenes with appropriate music that would change based upon the season to create a soothing video environment."
The channel later launched in September 2014 as Stingray Ambiance on Vidéotron in high-definition only.
In September 2015, the channel launched a second 4K UHD feed initially on Vidéotron, marking the first 4K television channel in the Stingray portfolio.
