CTV 41 Bendigo was a free-to-air community television station based in Bendigo. The station was awarded a trial licence in July 1996 for broadcasting on UHF 41. [1] [2] On 2 April 1998, the Australian Broadcasting Authority, regulator of television and radio broadcasting in Australia, decided to not renew the trial licences of community broadcasters that were not yet on-air, but the intervention of the Community Broadcasting Association of Australia prompted the extension of such licences from 1 July 1998 to 30 June 1999. [3]

The station eventually began broadcasting a test pattern on 19 June 1999 on UHF 41. On 26 June 1999, a 3-hour tape of programming information and music was broadcast on a loop. [4] The station's licence was cancelled on 30 June 1999 due to its failure to broadcast regular programming. [3]
