Launched on April 18, 2011, Sun News Network, after attempting to get a category 1 license to operate in Canada, started operating under the Category 2 license granted by Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications in November 2010. It was basically launched as a replacement for Sun TV. Later in February 2015, the channel was shut down. Most of the satellite and cable providers distributed this channel in Canada but only 40% of household subscribed to it. Due to the replacement of Sun TV by Sun News, it I mistakenly referred to as Sun TV. you can also watch NBC News Live Stream Online. This caused problems regarding the poor viewership.
Affiliation of Sun News Network
Sun News Network faced challenges in receiving viewership numbers that never crossed an average of 8000 viewers. It was too less to be in competition with the other networks such as CBC News Network and CTV News Channel. The lack of viewership resulted in continuous failure for the channel. Later failed attempts to sell the network to some well-known companies lead to a complete shut down in February 2015. The Category 1 license would have given the channel the same status as CTV Channel and CBC News TV Network.
