Review of the regulatory framework relating to vertical integration

Continuation of service – Clarification

For further clarity, the Commission amends paragraph 2 of Broadcasting Regulatory Policy 2011-415 as follows (the changes are in bold):

2.      The preceding determinations shall remain in effect until 30 days following the publication of the Commission’s decision in the above-noted proceeding. The Commission clarifies that affected broadcasting distribution undertakings and programming undertakings are not precluded from renegotiating the rates, terms and conditions or any combination thereof of pre-existing distribution agreements during the effective period of these determinations. Nor are such parties precluded from negotiating new rates, terms and conditions or any combination thereof of distribution agreements that are expired or are due to expire during the effective period of these determinations. Such renegotiated rates, terms and conditions will apply as the parties may agree.
