Shaw Communication Inc. has enrolled more than 20,000 homes in its free satellite TV program, CRTC data shows. In an email Tuesday, the CRTC said Shaw had 20,008 “active accounts” in the Local Television Satellite Solution (LTSS) program as of Apr. 29. Another 4,058 accounts were “waiting to be activated,” the commission’s data said. The program, which offers free satellite services and equipment to Canadian households that lost over-the-air television signals following the country’s digital conversion in August 2011, came about as a part of Shaw’s broadcasting system benefits package related to its $2 billion purchase of Canwest Global Communications Inc. in 2010. The Wire Report reported in May 2012 that Shaw had signed up “approximately 4,000 homes” of the 31,500 the program was originally intended to serve. The company said it would respond with a new marketing initiative to help promote the program to households affected by the digital transition. The CRTC data said 21,935 homes had qualified to take part in the LTSS program since its inception, while another 34,182 requests did not qualify to enter the program.
