CJEO-TV, branded as Omni Alberta, is a television station in Edmonton, Alberta. The station is owned by Rogers Communications, and broadcasts a multicultural programming format as part of Rogers' Omni Television system. It broadcasts its analog signal on channel 56.
The station was licensed by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission on June 8, 2007, and it launched on September 15, 2008. The station was originally assigned the call sign CHXE by Industry Canada, but this was changed to CJEO in February 2008.
Omni Alberta produces three nightly television newscasts aimed at the Cantonese, Mandarin, and South Asian communities across the province. While there are news gathering teams in both Edmonton and Calgary, the production of the newscasts themselves are done out of the Citytv/Omni studios in Downtown Edmonton.

As of January 2009, CJEO-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 , CJEO-TV is required to begin digital broadcasts on its current assigned channel number, 44. However, through the use of PSIP, digital television receivers will display CJEO-TV's virtual channel as 56.1.
