Wasn't Bell [satellite] TV ordered by the CRTC
"to carry at least 43 additional television services, including local and regional stations and independent community stations, by August 31, 2012
This hasn't happened, seems to have been quietly forgotten, and I see no explanation from Bell nor federal regulators. I'm anticipating some unacceptable corporate excuses like how they locked out 'ExpressVu' headend technicians, or how the MPEG4 receiver swap project is somehow taking longer than expected, as if having 15 months leadtime wasn't enough. Nimiq 6 has been up in the sky for months; it's ready... what gives?!
What's the point in having broadcast regulators if they don't follow-up on compliance with their own decisions or have any recourse for those who flaunt their rules?
