Public Notice CRTC 2001-112


Ottawa, 1 November 2001


The Commission has received the following application:


Across Canada
Application No. 2001-0770-8


Application by CANADIAN SATELLITE COMMUNICATIONS INC. to amend the licence of its national satellite relay distribution undertaking (SRDU).


For SRDU operators, the Commission's current practice consists of authorizing the distribution of specific individual Canadian television and radio signals on a case-by-case basis and listing each signal that an SRDU is licensed to distribute in a condition of licence. In the present application, the licensee proposes that the Commission authorize Cancom to distribute any licensed Canadian television and radio signals as an alternative to the Commission's current practice of listing each signal.


In its application, Cancom states that this proposed alternative approach would reflect recent amendments made by the Commission to the Part 3 List of Eligible Satellite Services (Public Notice CRTC 2001-82) whereas the Commission refers to the distribution of « the programming service of any licensed television programming undertaking » instead of listing each authorized signal separately. Secondly, Cancom states that such an approach would cut down considerably on the administrative burden on both the regulator and the licensee associated with changes in SRDU signals.


Cancom states that should the Commission decide that such an approach is not warranted, then it would ask the Commission to be authorized to add the following services to the list of signals that it is authorized for distribution.
