Over time, Global [[GrowingTheBeard grew the beard]] to become Canada's third (English) TV network, drawing more affiliates including in Winnipeg and [[StargateCity Vancouver]]. The network was long headquartered in Winnipeg until 2010 and owned by its parent company, [=Canwest=] (headed by Izzy Asper, a former leader of the Manitoba Liberal Party) up to that point, when it, along with all of [=Canwest=]'s TV holdings, was sold to Shaw Communications, which then organized them into a new subsidiary, Shaw Media, and moved Global's master control from Winnipeg to Shaw HQ in Calgary. By 2000, Global became a more nationwide network, with affiliates covering most of Canada save Newfoundland and Labrador, and [=Canwest=] acquiring roughly half of the assets of the Vancouver based Western International Communications (WIC), which included longstanding independent stations in Calgary (CICT-TV, originally the city's Creator/{{CBC}} affiliate) and Edmonton (CITV-TV, not to be confused with the British CITV kids' channel associated with Creator/{{ITV}}; incidentially, as a longtime cross-Canada superstation, it was branded as ITV) switching to Global, as well as longtime flagship station CHAN-TV in Vancouver, which served as most of British Columbia's Creator/{{CTV}} affiliate, long branded as "BCTV", forcing its then-affiliate, CKVU-TV, to be sold and become independent, and later an affiliate of [=Citytv=].[[note]]Though to be honest, Global Edmonton is still available on some cable systems across Canada, including in all of Newfoundland and Labrador, even though many of the same programs are on independent station CJON-TV (branded as NTV), based in St. John's, which was a former CTV affiliate.[[/note]]

The Global Television Network, usually known for short as "Global", is Canada's second-oldest English-language private broadcaster, and third-oldest English-language television network (behind the Creator/{{CBC}} and Creator/{{CTV}}). It began broadcasting in 1974 with a TV station licensed to Paris, Ontario but primarily intended to serve Toronto, and with several rebroadcasters covering Southern Ontario[[note](One of those "translators", the Toronto rebroadcaster on channel 41 atop CN Tower, was in all but practice the originating station of the network for decades, but Paris still served as the main station for the CRTC's purposes in licensing the Global system. In 2009 the CRTC finally acknowledged what everyone knew, and the oddly-named CIII-TV-41 was officially the main station in the network, though the Paris transmitter still exists.)[[/note]] Originally, the schedule was done to resemble American independent stations in the daytime in parts, but in prime time, it mainly simulcast American shows, and still does today.

From 2001 to 2009, Global had a sister network, CH, named for its flagship station, longtime independent station CHCH-TV in Hamilton, Ontario. other Its charter affiliates were CHEK-TV (originally a CBC affiliate and later CTV affiliate serving Vancouver Island) in Victoria, British Columbia and CJNT-TV, an ethnic independent station in Montreal (soon to become a Citytv affiliate). It later added former CBC affiliates CHBC-TV in Kelowna, British Columbia and CHCA-TV (previously CKRD-TV) in Red Deer, Alberta, the latter being heavily {{Retool}}ed to broaden its reach to Calgary and Edmonton. In 2007, it was rebranded as E!, using the name and logo of [[{{E}} the more well known American cable channel]] under license from Comcast (the local newscasts would switch to using their call signs for branding). However, this began to be questioned by 2009, when, as a result of the economic meltdown, [=Canwest=] felt that it no longer needed a second TV network, and sold off the E! stations (some of them for as little as $1) in Hamilton, Victoria and Montreal, all of which became independent, with CHCH mainly focused on a "rolling news" format throughout the day and movies in prime time. The station in Kelowna was retained and became a Global affiliate, and the station in Red Deer went silent on August 31, 2009. Over a month later, CBC affiliate CKX-TV in Brandon, Manitoba, owned by CTV, similarly went silent. (In 2010, CTV converted its cable channel Star into a new Canadian version of E!)
