Taking to the air as an independent broadcaster on October 31, 1960, CHAN became Vancouver's second OTA channel (channel 8) and one year later became a charter member of the new CTV Network, becoming "BCTV".

In 2001, a multi-station ownership/affiliation switcheroo in Vancouver saw CHAN become "Global BC" on channel 8, as CTV took over another independent broadcaster, VTV on channel 32, and Global's original station CKVU went through a few changes to eventually become Citytv Vancouver on channel 10.

CHAN is carried by most BDUs as the western Global TV feed for time-shifting.

CHAN is now also on 22.1 in the DTV era. Happy birthday CHAN!
