List of former CBUT-DT transmitters

This is a list of former CBUT-TV transmitters that were used by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation to expand the coverage area of a station to include remote rural areas throughout the Canadian province of British Columbia. These transmitters served as rebroadcasters of CBUT's main signal that originates from Vancouver. Due to budget cuts, the CBC decommissioned these transmitters, along with its other 600+ over-the-air analogue television transmission network on July 31, 2012.[1][2][3][4][5]

Unless otherwise specified, these transmitters have all gone off the air on July 31, 2012.

CBUT programming on CBC North stations


From 1973 on, through the facilities of the Anik Telecommunications Satellite, these transmitters in the Northwest Territories, along with the repeaters of CFYK-TV/Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, and the now-defunct CFWH-TV/Whitehorse, Yukon and CHAK-TV in Inuvik, Northwest Territories, aired some of CBUT's programming as part of the CBC North television service transmitters, originally known as the Frontier Package.

These rebrodcasters, and those of CFYK, CFWH and CHAK received the network feed from CBUT.
