Vancouver (B.C.)

The following stations are either part of the required transition to over-the-air digital television or have indicated that they will be doing so voluntarily. While most will be making the switch, some may simply be moving to another analog channel and some will be discontinuing their over-the-air broadcasting.

It is important to check your local stations’ digital transition plans. Contact your local stations for more information.

Remember, if you watch television via cable, satellite, or the Internet, you will not be affected by the transition to over-the-air digital television.
