Netflix gets pass on being regulated - for now

Netflix Inc.will remain out of the reach of Canada's broadcast regulator - for now.
The CRTC said on Wednesday that there is still no conclusive evidence that Internet-delivered television services such as Netflix are disrupting the traditional broadcast business in Canada. The report was the result of a fact-finding mission the CRTC launched in May to look into such "over-the-top" TV services. Because of "inconclusive results," the CRTC will not begin regulating broadcasting on new platforms.
"The traditional broadcasting system continues to support Canadian programming even as services emerge to deliver content to Canadians in new ways," the CRTC said in a release.
