Scope of licence renewal hearings for private conventional television stations
Additional document placed on the record of the proceeding, change of meeting date for the Technical Working Group on the Compensation for Value of Signal and invitation to submit written comments with respect to the analysis
|1.||On opening day of the public hearing on licence renewals for private conventional television stations, the Commission presented and placed on the public record of this proceeding a document entitled Fee for carriage – Impact Analysis. At the public hearing, some licensees of television programming undertakings and of broadcasting distribution undertakings (BDUs) expressed a need for further clarification with respect to this document. The Commission is now placing on the record of the proceeding a document entitled Compensation for Value of Signal: Discussion Paper on the CRTC Illustration, which provides additional information on the methodology, definitions and assumptions behind the analysis.|
|2.||On 6 May 2009, the Commission announced at the public hearing that the Technical Working Group on the Compensation for Value of Signal would be meeting on 23 July 2009. However, the Working Group is now scheduled to meet on 26 May 2009.|
|3.||The Working Group is tasked with examining the methodology and definitions used by the Commission in its impact analysis of compensation for value of signal as well as suggest potential improvements. The result of this work may be relevant to future discussions on this topic.|
|4.||Licensees of television programming undertakings and of BDUs wishing to participate in the Technical Working Group on the Compensation for Value of Signal may express their interest to the Secretary General by fax (819-994-0218) or by using the on-line Broadcasting Intervention/Comments Form by 20 May 2009. The Commission will also be contacting the relevant industry representatives to participate in this Working Group.|
Other interested parties and participants are also invited to submit written comments on the Commission's impact analysis of compensation for value of signal by 20 May 2009.
[Broadcasting Intervention/Comments Form]
|6.||Comments regarding the Commission's impact analysis of compensation for value of signal which were filed as part of the public proceeding for licence renewals for private conventional television stations will be considered by the Working Group. Given that the Commission has placed on the public record a discussion paper providing additional information on the analysis, interested parties who have already submitted comments as part of that proceeding may also submit further comments by the above date.|
|7.||The Commission cautions that this should not be taken as an indication of its position on granting compensation for value of signal to conventional broadcasters, but rather as an exercise to ensure that the Commission and interested parties have a common knowledge basis in any future discussions of this issue.|
