CJCO-DT, branded as OMNI Calgary, is a television station in Calgary, Alberta. The station is owned by Rogers Communications, and broadcasts a multicultural programming format as part of Rogers' Omni Television system. It broadcasts its digital signal on channel 38.

The station was licensed by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission on June 8, 2007[1], and it launched on September 15, 2008. The station was originally assigned the call sign CHXC by Industry Canada, but this was changed to CJCO in February 2008.[2]

Although the station's primary focus is multicultural programming, like the other Omni stations across the country, the stations airs a large amount of syndicated American shows such as The Simpsons and The King of Queens.
