Yet more ethnic Cat 2s approved

GATINEAU – There are dozens of languages spoken in Canada, and it seems like most of them will soon have a specialty channel catering to them. The CRTC today approved three more Cat 2 digital channels, all from Ethnic Channels Group Limited: Bangladeshi/Bengali TV, Portuguese TV, and Bulgarian TV. Last week the commission approved eight new third-language channels and announced it had received applications for an additional 29 category two licences, all but two of which are for ethnic services. The commission will hold a hearing into those applications starting June 19 in Edmonton.
