CityTV this week launched an application that lets Canadians watch shows such as Modern Family, Biggest Loser, Cougar Town and 30 Rock on their Apple iPad.

In addition to shows from its primetime line-up, the Citytv app will also feature off-prime shows such as CityLine and Breakfast Television Toronto.

Additional features of the app include: schedules for CityTV stations in Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton and Winnipeg; a notification service that can remind when your favourite show is on; and the ability to share video links on popular social media.

Unlike most Rogers iOS apps, you don't need to be a Rogers Cable or Rogers Wireless customer in order to use the free ad supported app.
