Global

Global Television Network (more commonly called Global, or occasionally Global TV) is a privately-owned Canadian English-language broadcast television network. It is currently Canada's second most-watched broadcast television network after CTV and has twelve owned-and-operated stations throughout the country. Global is owned by Corus Entertainment—the media holdings of JR Shaw.

Global has its origins in a regional television station of the same name, serving Southern Ontario, which launched in 1974. The Ontario station was soon purchased by the now-defunct CanWest Global Communications, and that company gradually expanded its national reach in the subsequent decades. The national entity was known as the CanWest Global System until adopting the Ontario station's branding in 1997.
