The Score can set own rate, says CRTC

OTTAWA – Sports network The Score had most, but not all, of its proposed amendments to its broadcasting licence approved by the CRTC.The Commission said Tuesday that the English-language analog service could increase its Canadian programming expenditure requirement and reduce its Canadian programming exhibition requirement; add to the program categories from which it may draw programming; and delete the condition of licence setting its wholesale rate. However, the Commission denied its request to amend the condition of licence requiring The Score to devote no less than 50% of live sports event coverage in prime time to the exhibition of Canadian programs.www.crtc.gc.cawww.scoremedia.com
