- by adding a condition of licence that would allow the licensee, at its option, to insert certain promotional material as a substitute for the "local availabilities" (i.e. non-Canadian advertising material) of non-Canadian satellite services.


At least 75% of these local availabilities must be made available for use by licensed Canadian programming services for the promotion of their respective services, the promotion of the community channel and for unpaid Canadian public service announcements.
