Craig Wireless Systems, Ltd. (TSX-V: CWG) is a Canadian company which offers Multichannel Multipoint Distribution Service in Manitoba and British Columbia.


The company has its roots in Craig Media, which was founded in 1948 by John Craig in Brandon, Manitoba, and began its foray in television broadcasting in 1955 with the launch of CKX-TV.

The company was based in Brandon, Manitoba, then later in Calgary, Alberta with Drew Craig, the grandson of John Craig, as its CEO. Craig Media was the owner of the original A-Channel system; CKX, a CBC affiliate, in Brandon, Manitoba; Toronto One, local television station in located in Toronto; and three digital television specialty channels: MTV Canada (now MTV2), MTV2 (now Juicebox) and TV Land Canada (now Comedy Gold).

CHUM did not acquire Craig's telecommunications operations, which remain in operation under the Craig Wireless name.

Craig Wireless was founded by John's grandson, Boyd Craig.
