Ottawa, 27 January 2016
Bell Media Inc.
Moncton and Upsalquitch, New Brunswick
CKCW-DT Moncton and CKAM-TV Upsalquitch – Deletion of a rebroadcasting transmitter
- The Commission approves an application by Bell Media Inc. to amend the broadcasting licence for the English-language conventional television programming undertaking CKCW-DT Moncton, New Brunswick, by deleting the analog rebroadcasting transmitter CKAM-TV Upsalquitch. The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with this application.
- The licensee indicated that the average weekly reach via antenna viewing of this transmitter is approximately 200 people, and that its closing will not have a negative effect on the availability of CKCW-DT programming in the region because the signal will still be available through broadcasting distribution undertakings and direct-to-home service providers. The licensee also cited significant maintenance costs for the transmitter and a lack of revenue generated from CKAM-TV Upsalquitch as reasons for its request.
*This decision is to be appended to the licence.
