History

Women's Television Network Logo
it was launched on January 1, 1995, the service was controlled by Moffat Communications and was known as WTN (Women's Television Network). Like Moffat's cable television operations and its local CTV affiliate CKY-TVmarker, it was based in Winnipegmarker, Manitobamarker, and broadcast a variety of programmes ranging from dramas and decorating shows to current affairs and occasionally even sports.

Shaw Communications purchased Moffat Communications in early 2001. However, having no interest in re-entering the specialty television service business, Shaw sold WTN to Corus Entertainment. Subsequently, Corus relaunched the network as "W" on April 15, 2002 with a more entertainment-oriented mix of recent dramas and movies. Whereas WTN seemed to focus on the feminist, W would henceforth focus on a more post-feminist woman.

In 2009, Corus Entertainment acquired SexTV: The Channel, with tentative plans to rebrand the channel as W Movies, a film-focused sister channel of W Network.

Programming

W Network airs a mix of lifestyle and entertainment television series including films, comedies, dramas, reality TV, cooking, makeover series and more.
