CBWT is the CBC's television station in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. It is the only CBC station in Manitoba, since Brandon's CKX-TV closed on October 2,
CBWT is the CBC's flagship station for the Central time zone, airing the main CBC schedule one hour after the CBC stations in the Eastern time zone. (For example, The National airs at 10 p.m. ET on CBLT (Toronto) and 10 p.m. CT on CBWT.) This is different from the other Canadian television networks, whose stations in the Eastern and Central time zones air their schedules at the same time (such as 10 p.m. ET and 9 p.m. CT, or "10/9 Central").
CBWT can be seen on several cable systems in northeast North Dakota and northwest Minnesota including cities such as Grand Forks, North Dakota and Bemidji, Minnesota. It appears on Canada's two DBS services on Bell TV channel 226 and on Shaw Direct channel 332. Since 1998 (or later) it was made available in Brandon, Manitoba as digital cable channel 62, and since the demise of CKX-TV, it can now be seen on analogue cable channel 6.
Country Canada, CountryWide and a local edition of CBC News at Six (formerly the local segment of CBC News: Canada Now from 2000 to 2006 and 24Hours from October 5, 1970 to 2000) have been produced out of CBWT. In addition The National has an investigative unit based at the station.
On January 15, 2007, CBWT began airing its first regional (non-news) television program since 2000, Living Winnipeg. The program can be seen weekdays between 3-3:30 p.m. and replayed at 3:30 a.m. On March 26, 2009 the CBC announced that Living was being cancelled on all its stations.
