Decision CRTC 99-79
CHUM Limited
Application processed by
Public Notice CRTC 1999-23
dated 10 February 1999
Flexibility in the scheduling of commercial breaks for Bravo!
1. The Commission approves the application by CHUM Limited, licensee of the national specialty programming undertaking known as Bravo!, to amend the condition of its licence dealing with advertising, by adding the following:
5. (e) Where a program occupies time in two or more consecutive clock hours, the licensee may exceed the maximum number of minutes of advertising material allowed in those clock hours if the average number of minutes of advertising material in the clock hours occupied by the program does not exceed the maximum number of minutes that would otherwise be allowed per clock hour.
2. The Commission notes that with this amendment, the licensee will have greater flexibility in scheduling commercial breaks when a program is broadcast over two or more hours. Licensees of a number of other specialty programming services have already been granted this flexibility.
