CRTC praised for making French-language channels available across Canada

News | 02/28/2001 5:00 am EST

The CRTC is winning praise for its French-language specialty television policy, which takes into account not only the size of cable systems, but also their capacity to carry more channels. Under PN 2001-25, distributors serving more than 2,000 subscribers with digital capacity of 750 MHz or more will be required to carry all French-language Canadian specialty services and at least one pay TV service. The recently licensed Category 2 digital specialty channels and pay-per-view services are not included in the policy.
