The CRTC has issued a revised Broadcasting Regulatory Policy (BRP) setting out standard conditions of licence and expectations for new “Category B” pay and specialty services. The term “Category B” service is the new terminology introduced by the CRTC in 2008. All existing Category 2 services and any new services that the Commission may choose to license without access rights will be referred to as Category B services. This terminology will be incorporated into the revised distribution regulations to be enacted on or before September 1, 2011.
Here are the highlights of the revised Category B standard licence conditions:
