Odyssey also known as OTN1 is a Canadian Greek language Category A specialty channel and is owned by Odyssey Television Network. It features programming from ANT1 Satellite, a private network from Greece as well as local Canadian content produced by Odyssey and other independent companies.
Programming on Odyssey consists of news, sports, Greek series (comedies & dramas), reality shows and more. OTN1 was licensed as Odyssey on September 4, 1996 by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) as a regional ethnic specialty channel for the province of Ontario. On June 6, 1997 before the channel launch, the CRTC amended its license to allow it to be distributed nationally. In December 1998 Odyssey Television was launched on Rogers Cable and Shaw Direct.
