As of January 2009, CJCO-TV has not yet begun broadcasting in digital.

After the analog television shutdown and digital conversion, which is tentatively scheduled to take place on August 31, 2011 [3], CJCO-TV is required to begin digital broadcasts on its current assigned and analog channel number, 38. However, through the use of PSIP, digital television receivers will display CJCO-TV's virtual channel as 38.1.
