Fox News north: The view from abroad

Reuters is carrying a Hollywood Reporter story about the SunTV application. This is how it looks from abroad:

" . . .Much of the controversy over Sun TV News turns on what broadcast license it will ultimately receive from the CRTC, Canada's TV regulator. The CRTC initially rejected a bid by Quebecor to see Sun TV News carried on basic cable, which would have required local cable and satellite TV services to carry the new channel.
"Now Quebecor has warned that Sun TV News will require "mandatory access" to the Canadian market, meaning it must be offered by cable and satellite TV operators to Canadian consumers, if it hopes to survive against competition from incumbent CTV and CBC players. The CRTC will hear Sun TV News' application for a broadcast license at hearings set to start September 19. . ."
