The switch was approved by the Canadian Radio-television Telecommunications Commission on August 27, 2015, when it dismissed objections by Rogers Media and by a resident who complained that as he only received television over the air, he would lose his ability to receive CBC Television as a result of the disaffiliation.

In 1993, the Oshawa transmitter became a semi-satellite with some slight differences in local programming.
In 2004, the station relaunched as a full-fledged station with a very different schedule; for instance, the station produces a separate local newscast, Studio 12 News and current affairs program In Depth with Dan Carter, that are produced independently from CHEX and focus on the Durham Region.
The station remained affiliated with CBC despite the fact its signal overlaps with that of the network's Toronto owned-and-operated station (O&O) CBLT-DT; as a result, the Toronto market was served by two CBC stations (the first since 1961, when CHCH-TV became an independent station).
On May 20, 2015, Corus and Bell Media announced an agreement whereby Corus' CBC affiliates, including CHEX-TV-2, would leave the public network and instead affiliate with CTV.
