Great White North Gets HDTV

Publish date:

Chum Ltd.'s Citytv will become the first station north of the border to
broadcast in high-definition TV next month, after the Canadian Radio-television
and Telecommunications Commission approved its digital license Thursday.

Citytv already has a deal with Canadian MSO Rogers Communications Inc. to
carry it earlier than that, however. It will launch Jan. 16, running Mission
Impossible 2
in HDTV at 9 p.m.
