Re: Great news! - CRTC blocks Astral buy by Bell

I don't think the CRTC would give up TMN & HBO to either Bell or Videotorn. Would go to Rogers or Cogeco. Unless those two are split up between videotron and Rogers or Cogeco.

Also, nothing up to this point negates or shows that a 3rd player isn't coming in and filing *with* Bell and astral. Could be a small surprise on the way. No one knows.

Maybe the CRTC Broadcasting Vice-Chair they took out for a night on the town started a company w/ Bell money to snatch it


Saint-Leonard, QC
Bell and Astral will never sell to Quebecor , Rogers and Shaw will be the one to help , Rogers was against the transaction since it wanted to be part of the transaction and wasn't.

Might be too that Bell knew it would be rejected so Rogers,Shaw or another company would be there when they do another offer this way Cogeco and Quebecor can't complain.
