The CRTC announced Tuesday that it has awarded Stingray Digital Group Inc. a pair of licences for two new national Category B specialty channels. One licence permits Stingray to offer an English-language Karaoke Channel to complement the company's licence for a similar French-language channel. The other new licence is for Concert TV, which would be devoted to “current and historical music concerts from a wide variety of music genres and related programming,” the commission said. The new channels will be primarily English-language and national in scope. The commission noted that Stingray has also indicated its interest in offering a 3D version of each of the services once the technology becomes more readily available.
