CRTC’s decision on local avails shows inconsistency on broadcast, telecom sides: CCTA
The head of the Canadian Cable Telecommunications Association (CCTA) says that the CRTC’s decision last week (Broadcasting Public Notice 2005-88) to maintain the status quo on local availabilities shows inconsistency between its rulings on the telecommunications and the broadcasting sides. CCTA president Michael Hennessy tells Canadian Communications Reports that the association likely isn’t finished its fight in trying to win approval for cablecos to advertise their bundles during the air time set aside in programming on certain U.S. channels. The air time is normally used to promote such things as Canadian programming, cable offerings (excluding their telephony products) and to air PSAs. For more, see next week’s issue of Canadian Communications Reports.
