Complaint by Quebecor Media Inc. related to Bell TV’s practices to combat signal theft – Correction


The Commission hereby corrects Complaint by Quebecor Media Inc. related to Bell TV’s practices to combat signal theft, Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2009-726, 26 November 2009, by replacing paragraphs 7 and 8.


Paragraph 7 shall now read as follows:

7. QMI acknowledged that the issue caused by the sale of Grab-and-Go receivers by Bell TV has little effect on the illegal decryption of satellite signals phenomenon. QMI is of the view, however, that Bell TV neither addressed its concerns nor showed that its retail practices constitute a sufficient measure to combat fraud by account stacking. According to QMI, the opportunity for fraud by account stacking remains an important problem.


Paragraph 8 shall now read as follows:

8. Given QMI’s reply, the Commission is of the view that the issue to be resolved is whether the measures taken by Bell TV to combat fraud by account stacking are adequate.
