Rogers Cable Inc. is lashing out at the Canadian Association of Broadcasters (CAB) over its push to treat them differently than direct-to-home satellite TV distributors when it comes to compensation for time-shifted signals. "We are seeking parity with DTH," Rogers Cable VP of regulatory affairs Pamela Dinsmore tells Canadian Communications Reports. "There’s no reason that the CAB should be getting Rogers to pay a monthly rate, the equivalent of $2 per month per subscriber, for its carriage of distant Canadian signals when DTH is paying 30 cents or less."
