Sun News Network added to Rogers and Cogeco Digital cable line-ups
Sun News Network will be available to Cogeco digital cable customers in standard definition on channels 195 and in high definition on channel 705. Rogers customers in Ontario will find Sun News on channel 142 (SD) and channel 567 (HD).
The Sun News Network is an English language Category 2 news and opinion channel owned and operated by Quebecor Media through a partnership between two of its subsidiaries, TVA Group Inc. (51% ownership) and Sun Media Corporation (49% ownership).
The channel launched on April 18, 2011 under a Category 2 licence granted by the CRTC in November 2010, after the network aborted a highly publicized attempt for a Category A license that would have given it mandatory access on digital cable and satellite providers across Canada.
The station is also available through the following major cable and satellite providers: Shaw Direct, Eastlink, Shaw, Videotron, Access TV, Bell Fibe TV and TBaytel. The station is not available through Bell Satellite TV after Canada’s largest Direct-to-Home satellite Television provider removed it from its line-up last May in a dispute over fees.
