YourTV (formerly TVCogeco and CogecoTV) is the brand of community channels owned by Cogeco. YourTV broadcasts into the Canadian provinces of Ontario and Quebec. Some channels broadcast in both the English and French languages, often on separate channels, in which case the French-language station is branded NousTV.[2]

Programming the channels is produced with the assistance of volunteers. This programming was created in response to CRTC regulations which previously required that cable companies produce local content (this is no longer required but strongly encouraged).[3].

YourTV in Ontario provides comprehensive coverage of the Ontario Hockey League, broadcasting games in Peterborough, Sarnia, Windsor, North Bay, Kingston and Niagara. Most home and away games of those teams being available only on cable on the local station, while many other OHL games are available as part of a package in partnership with Rogers TV. Quebec systems air Quebec Major Junior Hockey League games, in partnership with Vidéotron.

YourTV also provides community access and community oriented programming, and an electronic bulletin board service, featuring public service announcements regarding activities and events of local non-profit agencies.
