The carriage of CHEX-2 in Toronto stems from the early 1970s when they carried CHEX from Peterborough. At the time CHEX Peterborough was a CBC affiliate and only carried the minimum 40 hours of CBC programming per week. There was a significant programming difference between CBC Toronto and CHEX Peterborough at the time.Rogers Cable in Toronto carries the Oshawa signal of CHEX-TV-2 (Global) Oshawa to the timeshifting channel lineup on digital basic cable
No. Is it even available for carriage in Canada? Besides, Cogeco wouldn't bother anyways. The only HD channels they acquire over the last few years are Mezzo Live, Stingray Classica, Vision TV, ONE: Get Fit and Toon-a-Vision.
Still over a dozen more known established channels they still don't carry in HD. IMO, Cogeco has replaced Shaw Direct for having the least HD.
