Public Notice

Ottawa, 21 April 1999
Public Notice CRTC 1999-67
The Commission has received the following application:
Application (199813035) by HGTV CANADA INC. (Home and Garden Television, "HGTV") to amend the licence for its English-language national specialty television programming service. HGTV proposes a wholesale rate of $0.19 per subscriber per month when its service is carried as part of cable operators' or other distributors' basic service package. In such circumstances, the regulations allow distribution licensees to recover from subscribers the cost of providing the service. This represents a "pass-through portion" to be paid to HGTV (Sections 45 and 53 of the Broadcasting Distribution Regulations).
Examination of application:
HGTV Canada Inc.
1155 Leslie Street
