The opinions expressed in this editorial are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect those of Decima Reports.News of the CRTC’s restructuring has generated a lot of excitement at the Decima Reports offices.My colleagues covering the broadcast and telecommunications industries have enthused about the possibilities for progress on some currently stalled issues, and new media, of course, is no exception.  For the first time, the CRTC has devoted a director-level position to studying the thorny questions surrounding the evolution of new media. For instance, are the mobile video services now offered by wireless providers a form of new media, or are they mostly repackaged broadcast feeds in the manner of iCraveTV.com? TV broadcasters and groups affiliated with them, such as the Canadian Film and Television Production Asssociaton and the Canadian Association of Broadcasters, say mobile TV services are broadcasting and should be regulated as such. On the other side of the debate are the wireless carriers and the Canadian Wireless Telecommunication Association, which claim the services are not derivative of traditional TV because of their high-tech method of delivery, and consequently should fall under the New Media Exemption Order. The new structure comes at a time when there may also be some movement on Bell ExpressVu’s application to divert more money to the Bell Broadcast and New Media Fund: the CRTC has purportedly made a decision on the matter, and is in the process of writing it up for release early next year. For many in Canada’s new media community, approval of the application can’t come soon enough. While 2006 will definitely hold some surprises, indications are they’ll be the welcome kind that Santa brings, and not the metaphorical lump of coal. We wish you a happy and healthy holiday season, and we’ll see you in the new year.
