Peterborough’s CHEX TV has a new online location at the Global News website.

If you visit the former CHEX TV website at www.chextv.com, you’ll be redirected to globalnews.ca/peterborough/.

The switchover happened on Tuesday (July 25).

In 2016, CHEX TV’s parent company Corus Entertainment purchased Shaw Media — which owned the Global Television Network — for $2.65 billion.

According to a post on the Global News website, after the purchase a plan was put in place to integrate broadcast stations with Global News, and the website switchover is the next step in this integration.

“Besides the domain switching from CHEXTV.com to GlobalNews.ca when you visit our site and a slightly different appearance to match the existing GlobalNews.ca style, not much is changing,” the post reads. “You’ll still be able to watch your favourite television segments from CHEX online, find local events, traffic, weather and contests.”

A similar change happened recently with CKWS TV in Kingston (www.ckwstv.com) and Channel 12 in Durham (www.channel12.ca) — each website now redirects to a new location on the Global News website.
