 Addition of WUTV (FOX); deletion of WUHF-TV (FOX)

Following Public Notice CRTC 1995-167 dated 10 October 1995, the Commission approves the applications for authority to distribute WUTV (FOX) Buffalo, New York, received by optical fibre, on a discretionary tier of the undertakings serving the above-mentioned communities.

 The licensee has indicated that, at the same time, it will cease the distribution of WUHF-TV (FOX) Rochester, New York, received via CANCOM and distributed on a discretionary tier.

 This approval is consistent with the amendment to the Commission's policy governing the cable carriage of U.S. network signals announced in Public Notice CRTC 1994-107 dated 29 August 1994.

 The Commission acknowledges the intervention submitted by CHUM Limited in opposition to these applications as well as the licensee's reply thereto.

 This decision is to be appended to each licence.
