  • This chart shows that Canadians have a strong preference for Canadian news programs on television, despite having access to the major American networks on broadband and cable.

  • The majority watches news programs on Canadian television stations. Only 15% watch news on U.S. stations and 35% of Canadians never watch news on U.S. channels.

  • This result marks a complete turnaround from the '70s when the Davey Committee, which studied public attitudes towards the Canadian media, found that in some provinces up to 35% of Canadians preferred the then three U.S. television networks over Canadian news programs.

  • Clearly, the Canadian news industry has repatriated a significant proportion of Canadian audiences.
