ARTV and WETV Canada seek licence amendments
The arts channel ARTV Inc. is asking the CRTC to amend its licence so that it can broadcast in prime time a weekly one-hour program pertaining to events, artists and Canadian artisans – Broadcasting Public Notice 2002-27. The deadline for filing comments on the matter is June 18. As well, WETV Canada Corp., which operates The Green Channel, has asked the CRTC to amend its licence to change its times of operation from the current 18 consecutive hours beginning each day no earlier than 6 a.m. and ending no later than 1 a.m. the following day. It wants the new condition to read within a 24-hour period beginning just after midnight to "ensure the availability of the service to its subscribers at any time in any time zone" – Broadcasting Public Notice 2002-28. Comments on the proposed licence changes are due July 3.
