Just as the U.S. military does with its Armed Forces Network Canada maintains the Canadian Forces Radio and Television (CFRT) network which provides home television and radio for Canada’s servicemen deployed across the globe. International Datacasting Corporation has for the last ten years provided this service. The contract they have with the Canadian Department of National Defence was renewed for another year and is worth almost $3 million Canadian.

While it may seem like a small contract the programming is important to those troops deployed in remote parts of Canada or overseas. The service is for both radio and television.
