TVA (pronounced "tay-vey-ah") was established in the 1970s to be the second French language TV network in Canada. The network got its start from two TV stations based in Quebec, CFTM-TV in Montreal and CFCM-TV in Quebec City. While CFTM signed on as an independent, CFCM was originally a Radio-Canada affiliate until the CBC signed on CBVT in 1964. The network is owned by media conglomerate Quebecor since 2001. [[note]]Quebecor previously owned rival network TQS (now known as V) from 1995 to 2001 until their acquisition of Vidéotron (then-owner of TVA) forced them to divest themselves of TQS due to antitrust concerns; ironically, Vidéotron themselves owned TQS for a short time before being forced to sell it to Quebecor for the exact same reason.[[/note]] TVA currently airs a mix of French dubs of English-language shows from the American networks and its own homegrown programming produced in Quebec. Its own shows are some of the highest rated TV shows in Quebec and French Canada.

TVA has usually been regarded as the French equivalent of Creator/{{CTV}}, although the two networks were never owned together. Like CTV, TVA was historically a co-operative until it was restructured as a corporation. The old TVA logo was very similar to that of CTV, using a square, a circle, and a triangle (TVA switched to its current logo in 2011-12). TVA, like CTV, officially doesn't stand for anything, although some people refer to the network as ''Téléviseurs Associés'' ("Associated Telecasters").
