Two recent CRTC decisions are turning the tide on the tough haul that the western-based telcos were having getting pay per view (PPV) for their digital TV services. Earlier this year, it looked as though the telcos had no feasible way of offering PPV as negotiations turned sour with Shaw Communications Inc. and Bell ExpressVu LP hadn’t initiated its terrestrial PPV licence. But the CRTC rulings have opened up both these options, obviously much to the approval of the telcos.
