CIMT-DT is a French language television station affiliated with TVA in Rivière-du-Loup, Quebec, Canada. It broadcasts a high-definition digital signal on VHF channel 9 from a transmitter near Chemin du Mont Bleu in Picard.

Owned by Télé Inter-Rives, it is sister to Ici Radio-Canada Télé affiliate CKRT-DT and V affiliate CFTF-DT. This arrangement makes the station part of a so-called “triple-stick”, three stations owned by a single company and all three stations share studios are located on Rue de la Chute and Rue Frontenac in Rivière-du-Loup. This station can also be seen on Vidéotron channel 4 and in high definition on digital channel 604.

History

The station was launched on September 17, 1978. The station is part of a rare "triple-stick", owned by Télé Inter-Rives, which also owns CKRT and CFTF.

Former logo of CIMT

Télé Inter-Rives also owns the TVA affiliate in Carleton-sur-Mer, CHAU-DT. The latter station picks up the TVA signal from CIMT, and the two stations' logos are shown in promos.

Transmitters

In addition to several smaller Quebec communities, CIMT also has a rebroadcast transmitter in Edmundston, New Brunswick. CIMT is carried on cable in most of northern New Brunswick as well as in parts of Northern Maine. Sister station CHAU also operates several rebroadcasters in New Brunswick, and its main signal covers portions of New Brunswick as well. Between them, the two stations provide all of New Brunswick with TVA service.

Since 1999, CIMT has operated a "nested" low-power rebroadcaster, CIMT-DT-6 (formerly CIMT-6), primarily serving western Rivière-du-Loup. The area's rugged topography renders the main CIMT signal more or less unviewable in the lower portions of the city. CIMT's main signal is on channel 9, while its second transmitter in Rivière-du-Loup airs on channel 41.

CIMT-DT converted all its transmitters to digital by the August 31, 2011 digital transition deadline, including its transmitters that were not required to convert by this deadline. Only its transmitters in Rivière-du-Loup was obligated to convert, as Rivière-du-Loup was a mandatory market for digital television conversion.
