Who we are

AMI-tv is the world's first television network to broadcast all programs with open format described video for Canadians who are blind or partially sighted, and is included as part of the basic digital cable package from most television providers across the country at no additional cost.

In addition to described video, all content on AMI-tv includes closed captioning for a more inclusive experience. AMI-tv is broadcast daily into more than 10 million homes from coast to coast.

What we do

AMI-tv features an extensive variety of programs to appeal to the widest possible audience and help individuals of all abilities share in the magic of television. AMI-tv is committed to producing an array of original content with a focus on accessibility and inclusion. The original program AMI This Week provides a weekly account of community events, inspiring people and interesting stories from across the country. Our Community highlights the people, places, organizations or things that have made life a little more enjoyable for individuals living with a disability across Canada.

A full roster of original programs, including Eyes for the Job, Employable Me, Mind Set Go and Challenges and Change with Craig Oliver, offer a unique perspective on everything from home renovations to cooking, to politics and policy inspiring change. All of AMI-tv's original programs feature a groundbreaking form of description called Integrated Described Video (IDV), where hosts and guests describe their actions and surroundings during filming, eliminating the need for an additional audio track. 

In addition to original programs AMI-tv airs a variety of popular TV shows and movies, all with described video.
