CJEO-DT, virtual channel 56 (UHF digital channel 44), is an Omni Television owned-and-operated television station located in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. The station is owned by Rogers Media, a division of Rogers Communications, as part of a twinstick with City owned-and-operated station CKEM-DT (channel 17). The two stations share studios located at Enterprise Square on Jasper Avenue Northwest in Downtown Edmonton, and its transmitter is located near Yellowhead Highway/Highway 16A.

This station can also be seen on Shaw Cable channel 11 and in high definition on digital channel 214. This station is also available on Bell TV channel 647. It is not currently carried by Shaw Direct.


CJEO-TV's pre-launch logo

The station was licensed by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission on June 8, 2007,[1] and first signed on the air on September 15, 2008. The station was originally assigned the call sign CHXE by Industry Canada, but this was changed to CJEO in February 2008.[2]


Omni Alberta formerly produced local newscasts aimed at the Cantonese, Mandarin, and South Asian communities across the province. While there were newsgathering teams in both Edmonton and Calgary, the production of the newscasts themselves were based out of CKEM's studios in Downtown Edmonton. The newscasts were discontinued and replaced by Omni's national newscasts in September 2011; the national newscasts still featured contributions from Edmonton-based reporters.

On May 30, 2013, Rogers announced that it would immediately close down the production facilities for both Omni Alberta stations as a result of budget cuts – ending the production of local programming and news content from the stations.[3]

Analogue-to-digital conversion

On August 31, 2011, when Canadian television stations in CRTC-designated mandatory markets transitioned from analogue to digital broadcasts,[5] the station flash cut its digital signal on UHF channel 44. Through the use of PSIP, digital television receivers will display CJEO-TV's virtual channel as 56.1.
