CBC Sports began covering the sport of curling in 1962. Over the years, the network has owned the broadcast rights to events sponsored by the Canadian Curling Association, as well as specific events such as the Tim Hortons Brier, the Scotties Tournament of Hearts, Cross Canada Curling and the World Curling Championships. The CBC has also extensively covered Olympic Curling since 1998.

In addition to covering curling events, the CBC has created its own original sports programming, including CBC Championship Curling, which aired from 1966 to 1972, and the CBC Curling Classic, which was broadcast from 1973 to 1979.

After a dispute with the Canadian Curling Association, the CBC television network stopped broadcasting the organization's events in 2008. Today, most CBC Sports coverage of curling, apart from Olympic competition, is presented on the CBC website.
