Victoria’s CHEK News Livestream Brings Live Broadcasts to your iPhone


Vancouver Island’s first private TV station (and the first employee-owned station in North America), CHEK, is taking their news channel to a new level. They have unleashed a live stream to bring news broadcasts to your iPhone (or any other iOS device) for free.

The channel has a slight 30-45 second delay, but nonetheless all news content is right there for you. If you’re an infomercial addict, you’ll get to see some playing when newscasts aren’t being aired. If you’re living in Victoria or Vancouver Island, you’ll want to check out the free news stream from your iOS device.

All you have to do is visit this link and you’ll be watching CHEK on your iPhone. Aside from CBC Vancouver, this is the only other station where you’ll see BC news icon Tony Parsons on air.

  • Hey! I live in Victoria!

    I actually saw Tony Parsons at the Swartz Bay Ferry Terminal during the 2010 Stanley Cup Playoffs.
