1. Various locations in Ontario and Quebec
Application No. 2006-0667-6
  Application by Bell Canada (Bell) to amend the licences of its cable distribution undertakings serving the above-mentioned locations.
  The licensee proposes to amend its licences to authorize these cable systems to distribute on a digital basis one or both of the audio programming services offered by Canada's two satellite subscription radio undertakings.
  Bell submitted that the carriage of these digital services would offer a number of benefits to the Canadian broadcasting system, among other things, increasing not only the diversity and comprehensiveness of programming choices available to Canadians, but also the exposure and monetary support for Canadian musicians, particularly new and emerging artists. Bell added that the presence of satellite radio services on Class 1 digital broadcasting distribution undertakings (BDUs) would generate more interest from the existing base of Class 1 analog BDU subscribers, thereby encouraging them to subscribe to a digital distributor.
