|On January 4, 2015, I will be shutting down the server that hosts The TV IV website. It has been a very long time since I've been able to put any decent amount of time into the site, and ad revenue is plummeting. I think it is time to shut it down or hand it off to someone who can keep it going properly. If you are interested in taking over the site's code and data, contact administrators at tviv.org. --CygnusTMtalk|

Télé-Québec (known officially as Société de télédiffusion du Québec) is an educational French language broadcast television network in Quebec, Canada. It is owned by the government of Quebec as a provincial crown corporation.
Télé-Québec is available in Quebec over the air and via cable, and it is also available across Canada via satellite. It can also be seen OTA in parts of Ontario and New Brunswick that are within range of a Télé-Québec transmitter.
Montreal station CIVM-DT is Télé-Québec's flagship station and main transmitter. All other stations in the network serve as rebroadcasters of CIVM.
Télé-Québec was launched in 1968 as Radio-Québec, an educational program supplier to Radio-Canada stations in Quebec, operating as a department of the provincial government's Ministry of Education. Radio-Québec became a cable network in its own right in 1972, operating on community channels in Quebec in the evenings between 8 p.m. and 10 p.m., then it launched over-the-air on January 19, 1975 when CIVM in Montreal and CIVQ-TV in Quebec City went on the air. The network signed on more stations in Quebec between 1977 and 1984, and it received its present name in 1996.
