Several specialty channel broadcasters are asking for changes to their conditions of licence. Astral Media Inc and Alliance Atlantis Communications Inc want to amend their licence for Séries + so that the $900,000 it must now spend on original French-language feature-length fiction movies for television can also go toward specials, miniseries and movies for theatrical release. As well, CTV Inc has asked the CRTC to add long-form documentaries, informal education/recreation and leisure, and professional and amateur sports as programming genres that can be broadcast on its new Category 2 digital news channels. PrideVision, the Category 1 gay and lesbian channel, wants to be able to add programming about religion, music and dance, and music video programs on its schedule. More details.
