Owned and operated by Bell Media, it broadcasts on 96.9 MHz using a directional antenna with an maximum effective radiated power of 100,000 watts (class C). The station's transmitter is located at Mount Valin.
The station received CRTC approval in 1986. CFIX started operations on July 31, 1987 as a sister station to the now-defunct CJMT 1420 with a beautiful music format. The latter closed on September 30, 1994 when the Télémédia network and the Radiomutuel network merged to form the Radiomédia (now Corus Québec) network.
In 2004, Astral Media revamped the Rock Détente network with a new logo. This resulted in "CFIX Rock-Détente" being renamed to simply 96,9 Rock Détente. As such, the station no longer publicly uses its callsign (although the callsign was resurrected on the station ID in 2011).
