Télécâble Provincial inc.
Saint-Théodore-d'Acton, Quebec - 952607000
Deletion of local head end and interconnection to the Cogeco Câble inc. undertaking serving Acton Vale and Roxton Falls; licence amendment
Following Public Notice CRTC 1996-14 dated 23 January 1996, the Commission approves the application by Télécâble Provincial inc. for authority to delete the local head end of the undertaking authorized to serve Saint-Théodore-d'Acton, to interconnect this undertaking, via co-axial cable, with the head end of the Cogeco Câble inc. cable distribution undertaking serving Acton Vale and Roxton Falls and for relief, by condition of licence, from the requirement of Section 4 of the Cable Television Regulations, 1986 (the regulations), to own and operate the local head end.
The licensee is authorized to distribute WVNY (ABC), WCAX-TV (CBS), WETK (PBS) Burlington, Vermont and WPTZ (NBC) Plattsburgh, New York, received via co-axial cable, on the basic service of its undertaking.
Further, the Commission approves the licensee's request with respect to section 23 of the regulations. Accordingly, it is a condition of licence that the licensee be relieved of the requirement that it distribute at least four television programming services as provided for in section 23 of the regulations, so long as it distributes only those U.S. television services listed in the current application or as may be authorized by the Commission.
The Commission notes that, following the above-noted amendments, the proposed basic monthly fee for this undertaking, which is not yet in operation, will decrease to $22.39.
The Commission acknowledges the intervention submitted by Canadian Satellite Communications Inc. regarding this application.
This decision is to be appended to the licence.
Allan J. Darling
Secretary General
