Global TV was founded in 1974. The company originally decided to show Canadian-only programming between the prime hours of 5 PM to midnight and let the earlier daytime hours broadcast to post educational content from the Ontario Educations Communications Authority.
However, the OECA decided to use their own transmitters and Global TV began broadcasting full-time.
The Canadian-only programming idea quickly bombed and American programs were used to fill in the gaps.
Today, the Global Television Network, known more commonly as Globe or Global TV, is Canada’s second most-watched private terrestrial television network, second only to CTV.
The company is a subsidiary of Corus Entertainment.
Global TV maintains a corporate office in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
