Canada’s major Broadcast Distribution Undertakings (BDUs) have launched an online campaign (www.thetvtax.ca) against major broadcast networks for over fee-for-carriage. Calling it a “tax”, Rogers, Cogeco, Bell Aliant, Bell, Eastlink and Telus say Canadians will see a $10 dollar hike in their monthly cable bill if the broadcasters have their way. Private broadcasters were quick to respond, calling the campaign misleading. They said Canadians should “stand up against the cable and satellite providers' threats to once again hike basic cable fees and pass costs along to consumers.” They also pointed out, once again, that local Canadian TV stations are closing down and networks are losing money at a time when cable and satellite companies are continuing to make record profits. Broadcasters have countered with their own website: www.localtvmatters.ca.
