Ottawa, 21 December 1995
Decision CRTC 95-922
Various locations across Canada
Applications to insert certain promotional material in the local availabilities of U.S. satellite services
Following Public Notice CRTC 1995-168 dated 10 October 1995, the Commission approves the applications listed in the appendix to this decision, for authority to alter the signal of U.S. satellite services for the insertion of promotional material in the local availabilities of those services by adding the following condition of licence:
 The licensee may, at its option, insert certain promotional material as a substitute for the "local availabilities" (i.e. non-Canadian advertising material) of non-Canadian satellite services. At least 75% of these local availabilities must be made available for use by licensed Canadian programming services for the promotion of their respective services, for the promotion of the community channel and for unpaid Canadian public service announcements. A maximum of 25% of the local availabilities may be made available for the promotion of discretionary programming services and packages, customer service information, channel realignments, cable FM service and additional cable outlets.
This amendment is consistent with the approach taken by the Commission in Decision CRTC 95-12 dated 18 January 1995.
The Commission reminds the licensees that it is the Commission's policy not to permit the use of such availabilities for the broadcast of commercial advertising.
The Commission has noted the concerns expressed in an opposing intervention to the application by Taber Cable Television Ltd. for Bow Island, and is satisfied with the licensee's reply to the intervention.
The Commission has also noted the intervention submitted with respect to the application by Westman Media Cooperative Ltd. The Commission is satisfied with the licensee's reply to the intervention.
