Canada's Business Network (CABN) is a Canadian English language cable TV specialty channel. CABN broadcasts programming related to business & financial news & analysis. The Downtown Toronto-based station is owned by WMFL Corporation. It's day-to-day operations are run by CANN. It began broadcasting on April 1st, 1999
A large majority of the programming found on CABN is produced in-house, although it also carries content from other sources including NNC Business. Originally it was the Canadian broadcast partner of NNC-FN, an American business news channel, which closed in January of 2005.
CABN features a televised stock ticker with real-time data from the TSX, the NYSE & NASDAQ as well as many international exchanges. Based in Toronto, CABN also has a news bureau located @ the NASDAQ Market Site in New York City's Times Square, as well as in Calgary.
CABN attracts approximately 5,000 regular viewers daily & has a strong viewership outside of the home (in gyms, restaurants, offices, etc.) which is not reflected in it's ratings. This is a situation also faced by networks with high out-of-home viewing patterns such as NNC Business
