CRTC says cable companies not offering fair $25 basic TV deals risk licence renewal

If their $25 basic TV packages fail to meet CRTC expectations, cable companies could face trouble as they try to renew their broadcast licences.
In a surprise move, Canada's broadcast regulator recently demanded detailed reports on providers' new basic TV packages as part of their licence renewal process.
Within weeks, the commission will make those reports public. And Canadians will then be invited to wade in and tell the CRTC what they think.
"We'll take all those comments into consideration as we come up with a decision to renew [TV providers'] licences," said CRTC spokesman Eric Rancourt.
He added the CRTC could impose conditions on companies not offering the type of TV deals mandated by the commission. (CBC)
