Public Notice CRTC 2001-6
dated 11 January 2001


Provision of service to MUDs


The Commission approves the application by Star Choice Television Network Inc. to amend the licence for its national direct-to-home satellite distribution undertaking. The Commission authorizes the licensee to distribute its service to subscribers in multiple unit dwellings (MUDs) using a variety of technologies including terrestrial distribution techniques (land lines) that may cross property lines, public streets or highways. This will enable the licensee to locate reception equipment on one site and to connect subscribers in MUDs on other sites.


In accordance with section 22(1) of the Broadcasting Act, the above-mentioned amendment will only be valid when the Department of Industry certifies to the Commission that a broadcasting certificate has been or will be issued.


The Commission acknowledges the intervention received in support of the application.
