YTV is a Canadian English-language Category A specialty channel aimed at youth, available nationwide through cable and satellite television; the channel is owned by Corus Entertainment. The "YTV" name is thought by some viewers to be an abbreviation for "Youth Television", however the channel's website denies this being the case. YTV operates two time-shifted feeds, East (Eastern Time) and West (Pacific Time).
The channel specializes in programming aimed at children, including original live-action and animated series, and movies and third-party programming from U.S. cable channel Nickelodeon and other distributors. It is marketed mostly toward children and teenagers ages 7–15, with the exception of their weekday morning "YTV PlayTime" block that is aimed at children ages 2–6-year-olds.
