Évasion and Zeste complement TVA Group’s existing line-up of specialty channels, which includes LCN, TVA Sports, AddikTV, CASA, MOI ET CIE, Prise 2 and Yoopa. Évasion went on the air in 2000 with a schedule of travel, tourism, adventure and food discovery programs. Zeste, launched in 2010, is the channel for people who love cooking, fine food and entertaining in style.
On April 30, 2018, TVA Group reached agreements to acquire the companies in the Serdy Média inc and Serdy Vidéo inc groups. The closing of the transaction finalizes the transfer of those companies, including the Évasion and Zeste specialty channels, to TVA Group.
