The CRTC announced last week that it considers issues related to distant signals, also known as time-shifting, to be within the scope of its review of the regulatory frameworks for broadcasting distribution undertakings and discretionary programming services taking place next April. "The commission will therefore accept proposals, comments and evidence regarding the impact of distant signals and the impact of their importation into local markets as part of the proposals and comments on a fee for the distribution of over-the-air television signals to be submitted by 25 January 2008," wrote the CRTC. The commission has also established a revised date of February 22, 2008 for filing reply comments.
