ASN was owned by Bell Media, with its studios located in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and was part of Bell Media's A Network, though uniquely with no over-the-air signal.
CTV acquired CHUM in 2007, and had to sell off its CITY_TV stations. CTVglobemedia merged the Atlantic Satellite Network with the relaunched A system on August 11, 2008. In June 2011, BellMedia, now 100% owners of CTV, announced that effective with the start of the Fall Season, A channel would be rebranded as CTV Two.
