CTV’s application for a licence for The Comedy Network was approved in 1996, and the channel was launched the following year. Offering a 24-hour service, the channel’s schedule included stand-up comedy, improv, sketches, sitcoms, game shows, animation and talk shows, from both Canadian and foreign sources, including material first seen on the full CTV Network.
The channel’s strong schedule made it a viewer favourite for many years, and in June 2010 CTV announced the addition to the Comedy Channel program line-up of Conan O’Brien’s late-night show.
On June 7th 2018, CTV announced that the Comedy Channel would be rebranded as CTV Comedy.
