CRTC summons top TV providers for review of pick-and-pay rollout

The Globe and Mail's James Bradshaw writes:
"The federal broadcast regulator wants to know how pick-and-pay television is working out so far, and is calling Canada’s largest cable and satellite distributors to account for the way they’ve rolled out new choices to viewers.
"On Sept. 7, the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission will kick off a public hearing to discuss how the new, more flexible traditional TV packages it has mandated “are being implemented across Canada.” So far, the CRTC is summoning only BCE Inc., Rogers Communications Inc., Shaw Communications Inc. and Videotron Ltd., which is owned by Quebecor Inc., to appear at what is expected to be a short hearing."
