The CTV Television Network (commonly referred to as CTV) is an English-language broadcast television network in Canada launched in 1961. Since 2000, it is owned by the CTV Inc. subdivision of the Bell Media division of BCE, Inc. It is Canada’s largest privately or commercially owned network, and has consistently been placed as Canada’s top-rated network in total viewers and in key demographics since 2002, after several years trailing the rival Global Television Network in key markets.Bell Media also operates additional CTV-branded properties, including the 24-hour national cable news network CTV News Channel and the secondary CTV Two television system.
There has never been an official full name corresponding to the initials “CTV”; however, it is generally assumed to mean “Canadian Television”, a branding used in a promotional campaign by the network in 1998, and also in pre-promotion for the network prior to its launch in 1961. However, that branding was dropped before the network’s launch when the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation objected to it, claiming exclusive rights to the term “Canadian”.
