The Crossroads Television System (CTS) originally consisted of a single television station, CITS-TV in Hamilton, Ontario (also serving Toronto), with rebroadcast transmitters in London and Ottawa. CITS, launched in 1998, was the second religious terrestrial television station launched in Canada, after CJIL-TV in Lethbridge, Alberta.
On June 8, 2007, the CRTC approved CTS' application for new television stations to serve the Calgary and Edmonton markets. Respectively, these are CKCS-TV, which broadcasts on channel 32, and CKES-TV, which broadcasts on channel 45; both stations launched on October 8, 2007.
CTS was rebranded as Yes TV on September 1, 2014. The rebranding coincides with the introduction of several secular programs into the schedule such as American Idol, Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy!.
