HDTV channels are now available to the majority of Canadian homes and offer a wide variety of exciting programming from Canadian and other sources. A number of Canadian broadcasters such as CTV, CBC, CityTV and Global are providing digital services and have many of these offer HD programming now.

Over time these over-the-air broadcasters will be increasing their HD programming. In addition to distributing these Canadian services, cable and satellite companies are offering a number of HD programming options. In addition, specialty and pay channels such as TMN, Sportsnet, TSN and Discovery have HD programming available through cable and satellite services, along with HD pay-per-view programming such as movies and sports. For this reason, most Canadian networks are now producing their movies, episodic dramatic series and sports specials in HDTV. And an increasing number of broadcasters are starting to demand HD product from their producers, even without concrete plans to broadcast in this format.
