Dear Sirs, Madam,

Re: Renewal of the television licences specified in Notice of Consultation CRTC 2017-183 – Requests to designate information as confidential by Channel Zero, Hollywood Suite and DHX
(Applications 2017-0808-3; 2017-0820-8, 2017-0821-5, 2017-0822-3, 2017-0823-1, 2017-0824-9, 2017-0836-4, 2017-0839-8, 2017-0840-6 and 2017-0843-9)

Following the requests by DHX Television Ltd., Hollywood Suite Corp. and 21900115 Ontario Inc., 1490525 Ontario Inc., Moviola: The Short Film Channel Inc. (collectively, the licensees) to designate information as confidential for the applications mentioned above and pursuant to section 34(1) of the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission Rules of Practice and Procedure (the Rules), the Commission hereby requests that the licensees file the information requested below in order to be placed on the public file of the above-mentioned applications:

For Channel Zero only:

The Commission considers that disclosure of this information is in the public interest for the following reasons:

Please file revised abridged versions of the documents that take into account the above-mentioned conclusions by 26 February 2018.

Otherwise, pursuant to section 33(4) of the Rules, you may file a reply with the Commission by 26 February 2018. Should the licensees confirm their request to maintain confidential designation, the Commission will not require the disclosure of the information. In such case, the information will not be admissible in evidence and the Commission will not take it into account. The Commission may then find the renewal application to be incomplete.

Further, to ensure that the public has enough time to take the new information into account in their interventions, the Commission announces that it will add two weeks to the intervention periods of all processes mentioned above, from the day the information is received. A letter to this effect is also being published today.

Yours sincerely,

Claude Doucet
Secretary General
