Columnist says in a pick-and-pay world, TV channels will have to fight to attract viewers’ attention and some won’t make it and will be kicked off the dial.
Columnist says without regulation, there would not be any Canadian TV.
Columnist says proposed CRTC code of conduct targets cable and satellite providers.
Editorial says the “pick and pay” model for cable the CRTC unveiled amounts to giving viewers what they’ve been demanding for years.
Editorial says the guiding principle for the CRTC must be to ensure Canadians have maximum choice in what they want to watch and where that programming comes from.
