Is a Canadian non-profit independently owned and licensed by the CRTC of Canada,
consisting of three traditional over-the-air television stations,
broadcasting from the Greater Toronto Area, Calgary and Edmonton.

Crossroads has a talk show, 100 Huntley Street and "balanced" religious programming,
during the afternoon and evening hours, and Yes TV broadcasts family-oriented secular comedies, game shows and reality shows.
The re-release date of the system was in September 2014,
as Yes TV asserted its newly acquired Canadian rights to a number of major American reality series,
such as American Idol and The Biggest Loser.
The system is also consolidating its acquired programming with other independent Canadian stations,
outside of the three owned and operated Yes TV stations, through a secondary affiliate network called "indieNET".
It is operated from Crossroads headquarters in Burlington,
Ontario, and CITS-DT-2 London now broadcasts on Channel 19 and shows 19.1.
Crossroads Television System
The Crossroads Television System (CTS) originally consisted of one television station,
CITS-TV in Hamilton, Ontario (also serving Toronto).
With rebroadcast transmitters in London and Ottawa, CITS was launched in 1998,
and was the second religious terrestrial television station to be launched in Canada,
after CJIL-TV in Lethbridge, Alberta.
On June 8, 2007, the CRTC approved CTS's request for new television stations to serve the Calgary and Edmonton markets.
They were respectively, CKCS-TV, broadcast on channel 32, and CKES-TV,
broadcast on channel 45, both stations launched on October 8, 2007.
On August 12, 2014, CTS announced that it would relaunch it as Yes TV on September 1, 2014.
The new brand has been described as "embracing positivity and approaching the world with a positive attitude",
and the relaunch coincided with the announcement that it had picked up several new secular reality shows and game shows for the 2014-2015 season.
Including Funny American Videos (previously aired by Citytv),
American Idol (previously broadcast by CTV and CTV 2), Judge Judy,
Jobardi and Wheel of Fortune (both recently aired by CHCH-DT),
The Biggest Loser (previously broadcast by City), and The X Factor UK.
On September 13, 2016, Yes TV began broadcasting a 3-hour segment (now a 2-hour block),
of BUZZR programs from 1-3:30 AM (previously 1-4 AM).
And when the ban began, the schedule was based on broadcasts of B&W's original episodes of To Tell the Truth,
What's My Line?, and My Secret followed by two episodes of Card Sharks on Tuesday and Saturday,
Double Dare on Wednesday, Beat the Clock on Thursdays and Sales of the Century on Friday.
The schedule was then updated on April 9, 2017,
with two episodes of Match Game and two episodes of Super Password and Tattletales.
It concluded with an episode of Card Sharks, Double Dare,
Beat the Clock, or Sale of the Century (all aired on the same day as the previous schedule).
The schedule was updated again on October 10, 2017;
The current schedule so far is an episode of Match Game, an episode of Super Password,
an episode of Tattletales, an episode of Blockbusters and an episode of Press Your Luck.
Body Language also briefly replaced Blockbusters on the timeline in December 2017,
and the Buzzr block was discontinued in September 2018.
