CosmoTV broadcasts programs aimed at women ages 18–34. The channel's name and concept is licensed from the American women's magazine Cosmopolitan. Like the magazine, programming has a particular focus on sex, relationships, fashion, and beauty in the form of entertainment and lifestyle programming, ranging from comedies, dramas, reality programs, films, and more.
On August 7, 2007 Cosmopolitan Television Canada Company, a subsidiary of Corus Entertainment and Hearst Corporation, was granted approval for a television broadcasting licence by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) for a channel called Cosmopolitan Television, described as "a national, English-language Category 2 specialty programming service devoted to programming related to relationships, lifestyle, beauty, trends and style. The service shall focus on the interests and needs of young working women aged between 18 and 34 years."
This was the company's second attempt at receiving approval for a broadcast licence to launch CosmoTV. The company's first attempt was denied by the CRTC earlier that year due to concerns that the channel would be in direct competition to several existing television specialty channels that have genre exclusivity, protecting them from direct competition.
In seeking approval for permission to launch the service, the company's second attempt included a number of proposed restrictions to ensure that the service would not directly compete with protected services. Ultimately, the CRTC was satisfied with the second attempt's safeguards and approved the application.
The channel launched on February 14, 2008 as CosmopolitanTV.
