Ottawa, 2 June 2008

  Notice of consultation
  Applications received
Various locations
Correction to item 3
  Further to its Broadcasting Public Notice CRTC 2008-38 dated 1 May 2008, the Commission announces the following:
  The following item is amended and the changes are in bold:
  Correction to item 3
  Headingley, Manitoba
Application No. 2007-1713-4
  Application by Videon Cablesystems Inc. (Videon) to renew the Class 3 licence of its cable broadcasting distribution undertaking serving Headingley, expiring 31 August 2008.
  c) The licensee is authorized to distribute the following signals on a digital discretionary basis:

a second set of signals that provides the programming of the four U.S. commercial networks (CBS, NBC, ABC, FOX) and the non-commercial PBS network (hereafter referred to as the U.S. 4+1 signals).

  The distribution on a discretionary basis on the licensee's digital service of a second set of U.S. 4+1 signals is subject to the provision that, with respect to such signals, the licensee adhere to the requirements regarding non-simultaneous program deletion set out in section 43 of the Broadcasting Distribution Regulations. The Commission may suspend the application of this provision upon its approval of an executed agreement between the licensee and broadcasters. Such an agreement must deal with issues related to the protection of program rights arising in connection with the discretionary carriage of a second set of U.S. 4+1 signals solely on the licensee's digital service.
  d) The licensee is authorized to receive, directly through its own facilities, at its option, any of the distant Canadian signals and U.S. 4+1 signals that are otherwise required to be received from a licensed satellite relay distribution undertaking. The licensee is not authorized to use any facilities other than its own for the reception of these signals. This condition does not authorize the licensee to provide these services to any other licensed or exempt distribution undertaking.
