St. John's, Hopedale, Makkovik, Nain and Postville, Newfoundland and Labrador

CBNT St. John's - New transmitters

1. The Commission approves the application by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) to amend the broadcasting licence for the television programming undertaking CBNT St. John's in order to operate transmitters at Hopedale, Makkovik, Nain and Postville.
2. The transmitters will enable viewers in the above-mentioned communities to receive programming originating from CBNT St. John's.
3. The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with this application.
4. The Commission notes that the above-noted transmitters are currently operated by the CBC as a radiocommunication distribution undertaking (RDU), which rebroadcasts the programming of the CBC Northern Television Service.
5. The CBC has advised the Commission that improvements in satellite feed technology now permit it to provide these communities with the full CBNT St. John's program schedule. The CBC noted that it is thus no longer necessary that it hold a separate RDU licence for these transmitters and asked that the licence be revoked.
6. Accordingly, the Commission, pursuant to sections 9(1)(e) and 24(2) of the Broadcasting Act, revokes the broadcasting licence issued to the CBC with respect to the above-noted RDU.
