Broadcasting Distribution Regulations

Version of section 43 from 2006-03-22 to 2011-08-31:

  •  (1) Except as otherwise provided under a condition of its licence, if a licensee receives, at least four days before the date on which the programming service is broadcast, a written request for deletion from the operator of a licensed Canadian television programming undertaking, the licensee shall delete, in respect of subscribers located within the Grade B contour of the Canadian television programming undertaking, a programming service that is comparable to that of the Canadian television programming undertaking and that would otherwise be received by those subscribers on a non-simultaneous basis within the same broadcast week.

  • (2) A licensee shall not delete the programming service under subsection (1) if the Commission notifies the licensee that the deletion is not in the public interest because the programming service to be deleted contains subsidiary signals designed to inform or entertain and the non-simultaneously broadcast programming service does not contain similar signals.

  • (3) A licensee may discontinue a deletion made under subsection (1) if the programming services in respect of which the deletion is made are not, or are no longer, comparable and broadcast on a non-simultaneous basis within the same broadcast week.
