Telebimbi is a Canadian Category B-exempt Italian language specialty channel owned by TLN Media Group. Telebimbi broadcasts programming primarily aimed at children in addition to select family-oriented programming.

History[edit]

In October 2011, TLN Media Group, at the time a consortium majority owned by Corus Entertainment, was granted approval from the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) to launch a television channel called All Italian Children’s Television, described as "a national, niche third-language ethnic specialty Category B service devoted to providing programming to Canadians with origins in Italy or who are of Italian descent, and who are from preschool age to seventeen years of age.[1]

The channel launched on December 4, 2014 as Telebimbi, exclusively on Bell Fibe TV.[2] On May 31, 2016, Telebimbi launched on Cogeco.[3] On August 31, 2017, Telebimbi launched on Rogers.[4]

As of February 11, 2019, it and sister channel TeleNiños have operated under exempt status.[5] Shortly after, Corus sold its stake in Telelatino Network to the other co-owners.[6]

Programming[edit]

Telebimbi broadcasts programming for kids of all ages, as well as family-oriented programming.
