CRTC closes French pay TV genre after no new applications submitted

OTTAWA - Astral-owned Super Écran will remain alone in the French pay TV genre, at least for the time being. The CRTC called for new applications for French-language general interest pay television services that would compete with Super Écran back in February, but said Friday that it had not received any applications. The Commission said that it would stick with its original position to not to open up the French-language general interest pay television service genre to competition, and closed its consideration of this file. www.crtc.gc.ca
