There is no other way to please the CRTC and offer you IPTV service. You have no choice but to sign up with them.
That's wrong. The CRTC doesn't mandate that you also purchase Internet service from the IPTV provider, only that you be on their network.
They could very well use their network to provide IPTV services to their customers without routing those customers to the Internet if they don't have an Internet account as well. It's a business decision by the provider not to offer IPTV services without Internet service being bundled with it, NOT a CRTC requirement.
Just like you can have Videotron VoIP without being a Videotron Internet subscriber.
