TV Network
    (January 6, 1974- )
    Canada's second largest privately-owned broadcasting network
    Owned by Canwest Media
    Like CTV, they rely heavily on American programming.
    For years, they had limited coverage in certain provinces and as of 2009, they do not have a network station based out of Newfoundland and Labrador.
    They did not have a network station in major centres like Calgary and Edmonton until the turn of the century.
    Many TV viewers viewed the network as being a 'copycat station' of CTV as they often would go into bidding wars over prime time programming.
    They lost the rights to televising NFL games after the 2005 season.
    They often digitally add 'On Global' to opening sequences on television shows.
    They frequently use split screens during the closing credits which makes things extremely difficult for viewers.
    It was formed in order to air programs which were not offered by either CTV or CBC.
    When the network was on the verge of bankruptcy in the early stages, it became a major player on the Canadian television landscape after it was purchased by billionaire Izzy Asper.
    In order to show they didn't hold a bias towards the larger cities, they established stations in smaller cities such as Saskatoon and Regina.
    Rather then have their stations go by their own monikers, they re-launched under the Global banner (1997).
    They are the second most watched network in Canada.
    In addition to the prime time programs, they balance their programming with Canadian content.
