The meaning of «cjmt-dt»

CJMT-DT, virtual and UHF digital channel 40, is a television station licensed to Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It is one of two flagship stations of the Canadian multilingual network Omni Television. CJMT-DT is owned by the Rogers Media subsidiary of Rogers Communications, as part of a triplestick (the only conventional television triplestick operated by the company) with sister Omni station CFMT-DT (channel 47) and Citytv flagship station CITY-DT (channel 57). The three stations share studios at 33 Dundas Street East on Yonge-Dundas Square in Downtown Toronto; CJMT-DT's transmitter is located atop the CN Tower, also in Downtown Toronto.

The station was launched on September 16, 2002 as a sister to CFMT; at the same time, Rogers launched Omni Television as a blanket brand for the stations by branding the new station as Omni.2, followed by re-branding CFMT as Omni.1. The two stations are distinguished by their service of different cultural groups; CJMT caters primarily to Asian cultures (including programming in South Asian and Chinese languages), while CFMT focuses on European and Latin American cultures.

On cable, CJMT-DT is available on corporate sister Rogers Cable channel 14 and in high definition on digital channel 530; on satellite, the station is carried on Shaw Direct channel 395 (Classic) and channel 43 (Advanced), and on Bell TV on channels 216 (standard definition) and 1056 (high definition).

The station signed on the air on September 16, 2002, broadcasting on UHF channel 44. In 2004, CJMT moved its channel allocation to UHF channel 69. The station was licensed by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) as part of the same process that approved independent station CKXT-TV (channel 51, now defunct). The "J" in its callsign has no particular meaning, except that it was an available callsign that maintained the "MT" lettering (standing for "Multicultural Television") from CFMT (CJMT was formerly the callsign of a now-defunct AM radio station in Chicoutimi, Quebec).

On October 8, 2007, Rogers announced that the operations of the OMNI stations would relocate from 545 Lake Shore Boulevard West to 33 Dundas Street East.[2] CJMT and CFMT integrated their operations into the building – which it shares with City flagship CITY-DT, which moved into the facility the previous month – on October 19, 2009.

On April 27, 2015, OMNI.2 began Chinese language broadcasting 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

As a multicultural station, CJMT airs programming in the South Asian languages (such as Urdu and Hindi), as well as in Mandarin, Cantonese, Japanese, Korean, Somali and Pashto. As with its sister station CFMT, CJMT also aired syndicated English-language programming until September 2015. The original series Metropia was also broadcast on the station, with repeats on CFMT. In 2014, CJMT began to regularly simulcast CBS late-night talk shows Late Show with David Letterman and The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, both of which moved from the main Omni television channel. Both shows have since concluded, with their successors airing on Global and CTV respectively. The first season of the Fox series Empire also aired on CJMT (its second season moved to City).
