Untitled[edit]

Could someone add info on CTV's HD channels to this article? CTV HD East & CTV HD West.

To whoever added CFCN-5, CKNY-11, etc. to the article: a rebroadcast or semi-satellite transmitter does not merit its own article independently of its originating station, unless it's a former originating station that can be categorized under Category:Defunct Canadian television stations. They may be noted in the originating station's article. Bearcat 02:42, 9 Feb 2005 (UTC)

Why do not have CTV stations at Northwest Territories, Yukon and Nunavut?[edit]

As far as I know, there have never been originating CTV stations or affiliates in northern Canada. Northern communities getting CTV would be picking them up from the major urban centres like Vancouver or Toronto because Whitehorse, Yellowknife and Iqaluit are too small to support other originating TV stations beyond CBC North and APTN. Starbuck-2 06:37, 6 September 2006 (UTC)

CTV, being a private corporation, would not bother setting up to broadcast to such a small population as exists in the Canadian North. This was the reason for the CBC's existence. To provide news to areas in Canada that a private corporation would not bother with even if it were not conducive to profits to do so.Celynn (talk) 06:39, 1 November 2011 (UTC)

MTV Canada[edit]

CTV is now in partnership with MTV. CTV runs MTV programing late nights on Saturdays. They run shows like Wild Boyz, etc.. It should be noted somewhere on the page. I just don't know where. Mr. C.C. 06:45, 14 June 2006 (UTC)

"CTN"???[edit]

I'm tempted to just go ahead and change this, but let's thrash this out yet again first. I've yet to see ANY firm evidence that the network went to air under the name CTN. Gittins' book makes it quite clear: Caldwell wanted to CALL the network CTN, the CBC objected, and when the network launched it was with the name CTV, which officially stood for nothing. Can anyone prove otherwise? (If the only source is the article at broadcasting-history.ca[1], I'm just plain skeptical of that article.) Surely if the network broadcast as CTN, there would have been a logo -- press kits -- photos -- anything! All right, I'm done. Brithgob 07:09, 22 November 2006 (UTC)

Found the 2 October 1961 Globe and Mail article on the CTV launch and added the reference and info from the article. That item made no mention of the network being called CTN, it was referred to as CTV from the first night. Perhaps other editors with access to other paper archives (Toronto Star, or for other cities, as may be available through libraries) could corroborate this. Dl2000 00:24, 4 December 2006 (UTC)

Discription of the Biennial Liberal Convention[edit]

I don't have a varifiable source for this, but CTV has been erroneously discribing (coverage Nov 29-Dec 1), the Biennial Liberal Convention as the Liberal Leadership Convention. The Liberal Leadership Convention begins on Dec. 2. Could or should, anyone with a source, add this CTV mistake to the article? GoodDay 19:55, 1 December 2006 (UTC)

Mistake or not, CTV is not the only outlet to call it that, and I would not consider it a notable issue in any event. — stickguy (:^›)— || talk || 20:15, 1 December 2006 (UTC)
Alright, I'll agree with that. GoodDay 20:26, 1 December 2006 (UTC)

CTV radio network[edit]

with CTVGlobemedia buying CHUM will they lauch CTV radio national news.spiddy 23:16, 3 May 2007 (UTC)

There was a "CTV Radio News" on the radio some years back, but it was syndicated by CTV to individual radio stations across Canada as a vehicle for CTV News at the time. Since CTV's origins are in television, however, I don't think "CTV radio network" will be used as a name per se for the current CHUM stations once CTVglobemedia buys CHUM (pending CRTC approval), but they might go with something else. Starbuck-2 05:31, 4 May 2007 (UTC)
It's certainly possible; just as possible would be a TSN-branded national sports radio network. Let's wait and see. Bearcat

Treehouse[edit]

I need my memory fixed. Was there a CTV kids show called 'Treehouse'? I know there's a Canadian kids show called that. If so, could it be added (with a varifiable link). GoodDay 22:56, 14 May 2007 (UTC)

Treehouse (or Tree House?) was a local CKCO-TV (CTV affiliate) children's show. Can't determine if it was ever broadcast on the full CTV network or syndicated to other affiliates, though. Some indirect refs: [2] [3] Dl2000 01:56, 15 May 2007 (UTC)
Thanks for jogging my memory, Letters, we get letters, we get lots'n lots of letters. GoodDay 17:32, 15 May 2007 (UTC)

a show did exist although i do not know the full name. the host was a blonde burley fellow who played guitar, told stories and had both puppets and children on the show. I believe in ran from the late 1970's to the early 1980's. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 198.103.161.1 (talk) 22:06, 20 November 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:CTV80s.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:CTV80s.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 03:55, 2 June 2007 (UTC)

Ratings[edit]

Re: television ratings — being the #1 network is defined by the overall aggregate audience over the entire schedule, not by merely happening to have the single most-watched show. Accordingly, CTV's claim to #1 status is not disputable, as the network does currently have a higher aggregate audience than Global, and it violates both POV and original research rules to propose an alternate reading of the Nielsen numbers. Bearcat 21:16, 14 June 2007 (UTC)

Because CTV British Columbia will go off-air,[edit]

I see the following (Indicated with precision):

  • CTV signs off at 04:30 or later only on nights when there is a movie, and signs on at 05:01.

Do any other CTV owned and operated (Not including CITL, CHFD and CJBN) CTV stations sign off? And if so, which ones? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 154.5.181.164 (talk) 00:41, August 26, 2007 (UTC)

Special Olympics[edit]

Hi 
My name is Julia and I have a concern I would like to share with CTV.  At the special olympics in Yarmouth there was a injustice done.
The team from Bridgewater was treated unfair, the B team won every game they played in their devision and told to leave when they were asked to play an A team and refused as their players could not play rough like the A team. So the players are being taught if they play to their best then they are penalized! Please look into this as I beleive this should not go on.

Thank You Julia —Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.138.17.201 (talk) 16:33, 27 February 2009 (UTC)

This isn't the place to communicate with CTV; it's only a place for Wikipedia users to discuss changes to our article. If you want to get in touch with CTV over a potential news story, then you need to contact CTV directly through their website, not ours. Bearcat (talk) 07:40, 13 June 2009 (UTC)

Mideast conflict[edit]

It would be interesting if we could gather information on the CTV's editorial policies on the Mideast conflict, which is a controversial topic in contemporary journalism. ADM (talk) 22:57, 28 June 2009 (UTC)

Individual channel articles behind on Transmitter information by a single detail each...[edit]

It looks as though many individual articles for the channels themselves owned by CTV still say that they will be shut down on or before August 31, 2009. It's September 18th when I'm writing this, the articles were last updated on September 10th, and it still looks like they are behind the times. The main exception being the Ottawa affiliate which says that the repeaters are still broadcasting. Mechamind90 (talk) 05:41, 19 September 2009 (UTC)

We don't know if all of the transmitters have shut down yet. I believe CTV is still operating the repeaters, even though they promised to shut them down.  єmarsee Speak up! 05:43, 19 September 2009 (UTC)

CTV Television NetworkCTV Television – Simpler name; additionally, as indicated in the article, for the purposes of CRTC licensing CTV is not legally considered a television network. ViperSnake151  Talk  00:16, 13 August 2013 (UTC)

  • Weak oppose - The common name would be CTV and it would be consistent with the likes of NBC, CNN, and CBS but since CTV is a disambiguation page, it is better to leave page name as it is. --MicroX (talk) 06:49, 17 August 2013 (UTC)

Orphaned references in CTV Television Network[edit]

I check pages listed in Category:Pages with incorrect ref formatting to try to fix reference errors. One of the things I do is look for content for orphaned references in wikilinked articles. I have found content for some of CTV Television Network's orphans, the problem is that I found more than one version. I can't determine which (if any) is correct for this article, so I am asking for a sentient editor to look it over and copy the correct ref content into this article.

Reference named "ctv":

  • From 2010 Winter Olympics: Wingrove, Josh (August 21, 2009). "Vancouver Olympic designer dies at age 40". Globe and Mail. CTV Television Network. Archived from the original on January 30, 2010. Retrieved February 14, 2010.
  • From CraveTV: '19-2' star Jared Keeso to helm original scripted comedy for CraveTV. CTV News, March 5, 2015.

I apologize if any of the above are effectively identical; I am just a simple computer program, so I can't determine whether minor differences are significant or not. AnomieBOT 13:01, 21 June 2015 (UTC)
