CRTC chair Charles Dalfen has promised the commission’s support to thwart black and grey market satellite TV, signaling a shift in the regulator’s approach to the issue.

But new pressure from industry players backed by an official complaint against a particular company allegedly engaged in black and grey market activities has thrust the issue to the forefront.
