Licence amendment


The Commission approves the application by Access Communications Co-operative Limited (Access) to amend the Class 1 broadcasting licence for its cable broadcasting distribution undertaking (BDU) serving Regina, Saskatchewan by replacing the current condition of licence that authorizes the licensee to distribute, at its option, WBZ-TV (CBS), WHDH-TV (NBC), WCVB-TV (ABC), WFXT (FOX) and WGBH-TV (PBS) Boston, Massachusetts, as part of the basic service, with the following condition of licence:

The licensee is authorized to distribute, at its option, WCCO-TV (CBS) Minneapolis, Minnesota and WHDH-TV (NBC), WCVB-TV (ABC), WFXT (FOX) and WGBH-TV (PBS) Boston, Massachusetts, as part of the basic service. Alternatively, for each network signal, the licensee may distribute the signal of a different affiliate of the same network located in the same time zone as that of the licensed area and included in the Lists of eligible satellite services, as amended from time to time.


There were no interventions to this application. The licence amendment will provide Access with similar flexibility to that granted to other BDUs.
