Application 2010-1553-7, received 12 October 2010

CIVI-TV Victoria – Licence amendment

1.      The Commission approves the application by CTV Corp. to amend the broadcasting licence for the television programming undertaking CIVI-TV Victoria to add a post-transition digital transmitter in order to serve the population of Victoria. The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with this application. The implementation is subject to the notification by the Department of Industry (the Department) discussed in paragraph 3 below.

2.      The transmitter will operate on channel 23 with an effective radiated power (ERP) of 720 watts (maximum ERP of 1,500 watts with an effective height of antenna above average terrain of 99.6 metres).

3.      The Commission reminds the licensee that, pursuant to section 22(1) of the Broadcasting Act, this licence amendment will only be effective when the Department notifies the Commission that its technical requirements have been met and that a broadcasting certificate will be issued. Therefore, in the absence of the notification by the Department, the applicant will not be able to implement the licence amendment approved in this decision.

4.      The transmitter must be operational at the earliest possible date and in any event no later than 31 August 2011. The Commission expects the licensee to inform it in writing once this transmitter is in operation.

Secretary General
