Stornoway Communications LP has launched a complaint to the CRTC about its iChannel being taken out of a theme package offered by BCE Inc. to IPTV and satellite-TV customers. Stornoway said in an application that appeared on the CRTC's website Friday that it has been informed by Bell that iChannel, a Category A specialty channel, will be taken out of a theme package offered to 247,000 subscribers. Stornoway said Bell's move will result in a loss of 67 per cent of its Bell subscriber base, 25 per cent of all it subscribers and a decline of more than $1 million in revenue. It argued that Bell's move is contrary to regulations governing broadcast distribution arrangement because it subjects iChannel to an "undue disadvantage," and gives other channels not being taken out of the package — including those owned by Bell — an "undue preference." The website for iChannel describes it as channel for informative programming on political, social and cultural issues. The company said iChannel has been part of Bell's "News and Learning 2" package since 2005, noting that this package is now considered "legacy" because it's only available to those who received it before packaging changes in 2012. Stornoway made reference to OUTtv Network Inc., which it categorized as facing similar treatment. OUTtv has also launched a complaint against Bell for being taken out of a TV-subscription package.
