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

The new bid is officially submitted:

»www.cbc.ca/news/business/story/2···rtc.html

Light on details though, with Bell/Astral saying we'll have to wait until the CRTC starts the public consultations to find out specifics.

Bell launched a website to show everyone how great this would be.

Yeah, as if I'm going to put my name on a mailing list that will probably be used to target me for Bhell advertising.

Most likely they will try to keep all the French channels and sell all or some of the English ones ..

I hope it will not go thru ... If CRTC will approve it ...I hope The Competition Bureau will stop it!

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

i have nothing against bce wanting to buy astral, most of the people who want it to stop, cant give a good enough reason except they dislike bce and bell from a customer service point of view. that should not be a good enough reason to stop this deal, if i dislike mcdonalds cus of personal reaosns and they wanted to buy burger king, then id be dumb. let them do what they want, if anyone has a say, its the competition bureaw and the crtc.

Well maybe that is your myopic view. However, some of the people posting in this forum are in the IPTV business and know they cannot even get a station from Bell. Bell is being anti-competitive on all fronts. This in turn is preventing choice for the people.

So no, this isn't a MacDonalds situation.
