CANADIAN RADIO-TELEVISION AND TELECOMMUNICATIONS COMMISSION

PUBLIC NOTICE 2008-101-1

Notice of consultation — Call for comments on a proposed regulatory framework for video-on-demand undertakings — Request for deferral of proceeding

Deadline for filing of comments: January 2, 2009

The Commission calls for comments on a request from the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) that it defer for a period of 12 months the proceeding announced in Broadcasting Public Notice 2008-101.

In Broadcasting Public Notice 2008-101, the Commission called for comments on a proposed regulatory framework for video-on-demand undertakings. The deadline for filing comments established in that proceeding is January 29, 2009. The deadline for the filing of replies is March 12, 2009.

The Commission has received a request from the CBC, dated December 12, 2008, that it defer by 12 months the proceeding announced in Broadcasting Public Notice 2008-101. In support of its request, the CBC cited considerations that include other regulatory proceedings occurring in the same time frame. It also stated that most initiatives arising out of the new regulatory frameworks announced in Broadcasting Public Notice 2008-100 will not come into effect until the end of August 2011, and argued that there is thus no need to “fast track” this proceeding. Finally, the CBC submitted that this proceeding deals with the issue of advertising at a time when “the advertising market for all broadcasters, including CBC/SRC, has become very challenging.”

Parties may file any comments they might have with respect to the requests received from the CBC/SRC.

PUBLIC NOTICE 2008-102-1

Notice of consultation — Call for comments on a proposed framework for the sale of commercial advertising in the local availabilities of non-Canadian services — Requests for deferral of proceeding

Deadline for filing of comments: January 2, 2009

The Commission calls for comments on requests from the Canadian Association of Broadcasters (CAB) and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) that it defer for a minimum of 12 months the proceeding announced in Broadcasting Public Notice 2008-102.

In Broadcasting Public Notice 2008-102, the Commission called for comments on a proposed framework for the sale of commercial advertising in the local availabilities of non-Canadian services. The deadline for filing comments established in that proceeding is January 15, 2009. The deadline for the filing of replies is February 19, 2009.

The Commission has received a request from the CAB, dated December 9, 2008, that it defer for a minimum of 12 months the proceeding announced in Broadcasting Public Notice 2008-102. In its request, the CAB noted that a number of other regulatory proceedings are currently under way, including the accessibility hearing, the minority-language service hearing, the proceeding initiated in Broadcasting Public Notice 2008-101 and the new media proceeding. In support of its request, the CAB cited “these other proceedings and related deadlines, the present state of the economy, and the current lack of credible information on which the Commission could rely.” The CAB argued, in particular, that there is a lack of information respecting new forms of advertising.

The Commission has also received a request from the CBC, dated December 12, 2008, that it defer by 12 months the proceeding announced in Broadcasting Public Notice 2008-102. In support of its request, the CBC cited considerations that include other regulatory proceedings occurring in the same time frame. It also stated that most initiatives arising out of the new regulatory frameworks announced in Broadcasting Public Notice 2008-100 will not come into effect until the end of August 2011, and argued that there is thus no need to “fast track” this proceeding. Finally, the CBC submitted that this proceeding deals with the issue of advertising at a time when “the advertising market for all broadcasters, including CBC/SRC, has become very challenging.”

Parties may file any comments they might have with respect to the requests received from the CAB and from the CBC.

PUBLIC NOTICE 2008-119

Notice of consultation

Applications received
Various locations
Deadline for submission of interventions and/or comments: January 22, 2009

The Commission has received the following applications:

1. Bragg Communications Inc., on behalf of itself and its wholly owned cable subsidiaries K-Right Communications Ltd., Bay Communications Inc., Access Communications Inc. and Halifax Cablevision Ltd., all carrying on business as EastLink (collectively, “EastLink”)

Charlottetown and surrounding areas, Prince Edward Island; Bedford, Sackville and surrounding areas, Dartmouth and surrounding areas, Debert and surrounding areas, Great Village and Glenholme, Halifax and surrounding areas, Masstown, Mount Uniacke/Lakelands, New Glasgow and surrounding areas, Sydney and surrounding area, Truro and surrounding areas, Bridgewater, Blockhouse, Lunenburg and surrounding areas, Kentville/New Minas and area, and St. Margaret’s Bay and area, Nova Scotia

For a condition of licence authorizing these licensees to distribute the special programming service EDUC, formerly known as Distance University Educational Television (DUET), on their cable broadcasting distribution undertakings serving Charlottetown and surrounding areas, Prince Edward Island; Debert and surrounding areas, Great Village and Glenholme, Masstown, New Glasgow and surrounding areas, Sydney and surrounding area, Truro and surrounding areas, Bridgewater, Blockhouse, Lunenburg and surrounding areas, Kentville/New Minas and area, and St. Margaret’s Bay and area, Nova Scotia, which would read as follows:

The licensee is authorized to distribute, at its option, without advertising material, the special programming service EDUC.

Furthermore, Bragg, on behalf of itself and its wholly owned cable subsidiaries K-Right Communications Ltd., Access Communications Inc. and Halifax Cablevision Ltd., all carrying on business as EastLink (collectively, “EastLink”), also requests an amendment to the current condition of licence authorizing these licensees to distribute this special programming service as follows:

(a) For Bedford, Sackville and surrounding areas and Dartmouth and surrounding areas, Nova Scotia:

From: The licensee is authorized to distribute, at its option, without advertising material, the special programming service Distance University Educational Television (DUET).

To: The licensee is authorized to distribute, at its option, without advertising material, the special programming service EDUC.

(b) For Halifax and surrounding areas and Mount Uniacke/Lakelands, Nova Scotia:

From: The licensee is authorized to distribute, at its option, without advertising material, the special programming service Distance University Educational Television (DUET), as part of the basic service.

To: The licensee is authorized to distribute, at its option, without advertising material, the special programming service EDUC.

This special programming service is provided to these cable broadcasting distribution undertakings by Mount Saint Vincent University in Halifax.

2. MTS Allstream Inc.
    Winnipeg and surrounding areas and Brandon, Manitoba

To extend the authorized service area of its terrestrial broadcasting distribution undertaking (BDU) serving Winnipeg and surrounding areas, Manitoba, which it operates under a Class 1 regional licence, to include Brandon, Manitoba.

MTS also proposes to develop an outlet for local expression for subscribers in Brandon, similar to the service it offers in Winnipeg.

In addition, MTS is seeking approval to accrue the five percent of gross annual revenues derived from broadcasting activities in Brandon during the first two years of operation of its service in that locality. These funds would be directed to local expression programming for Brandon during the third year of operation. MTS argues that this would enable it to accumulate a sufficient amount of money to fund initial VOD-based community programming.

To that end, MTS proposed the amendment to its condition of licence 7, as follows:

7. The licensee shall be subject to the following conditions of licence as an exception to the requirements set out in section 29 of the Broadcasting Distribution Regulations (the Regulations):

If the licensee has 20 000 or more subscribers in the licensed area of a broadcasting distribution undertaking (BDU) on August 31 of the previous broadcast year and distributes programming that qualifies as local expression on a video-on-demand service, the licensee shall make, in each broadcast year, a contribution to Canadian programming of not less than the greater of

(a) 5% of its gross revenues derived from broadcasting activities in the licensed area in the year, less any contribution to local expression made by the licensee in the licensed area in that year, and

(b) 3% of its gross revenues derived from broadcasting activities in the licensed area in the broadcast year.

If the licensee has 20 000 or more subscribers in the licensed area of a BDU on August 31 of the previous broadcast year and does not distribute programming that qualifies as local expression on a video-on-demand or pay-per-view service, and if a community programming undertaking is licensed in the licensed area, the licensee shall make, in each broadcast year, a contribution of not less than

(a) 3% of its gross revenues derived from broadcasting activities in the broadcast year to Canadian programming, and

(b) 2% of its gross revenues derived from broadcasting activities in the licensed area in the broadcast year to the community programming undertaking.

If the licensee has fewer than 20 000 subscribers in the licensed area of a BDU on August 31 of the previous broadcast year and distributes programming that qualifies as local expression on a video-on-demand or pay-per-view service, the licensee shall make, in each broadcast year, a contribution of not less than 5% of its gross revenues derived from broadcasting activities in the licensed areas in the year to Canadian programming, less any contribution to local expression made by the licensee in the licensed area in that year.

If the licensee has fewer than 20 000 subscribers in the licensed area of a BDU on August 31 of the previous broadcast year and does not distribute programming that qualifies as local expression on a video-on-demand or pay-per-view service, and if a community programming undertaking is licensed in the licensed area, the licensee shall make, in each broadcast year, a contribution of 5% of its gross revenues derived from broadcasting activities in the licensed area in the broadcast year to the community programming undertaking.

If the licensee does not distribute programming that qualifies as local expression on a video-on-demand or pay-per-view service, and if no community programming undertaking is licensed in the licensed area, the licensee shall make, in each broadcast year, a contribution of not less than 5% of its gross revenues derived from broadcasting activities in the licensed area in the year to Canadian programming.

For the purposes of calculating the licensee’s contribution to local expression for the Winnipeg licensed areas, the licensee may include the contributions to local expression made for programming produced in other licensed areas, for programming produced outside the licensed areas, or for programming covering provincial events, up to a maximum of 20% of the total contribution to the local expression applicable for the Winnipeg licensed areas.

MTS is also requesting the addition of a condition of licence, as follows:

The licensee is relieved from the requirements of section 17 of the Broadcasting Distribution Regulations with respect to CKX (CBC) Brandon provided that it is distributed in Brandon.
