Canadian Cable: Not So Fast on New Fees

Not so fast on fees for carriage of broadcast signals, a representative of Canadian cable told regulators north of the border Tuesday.

At a hearing on the future of Canadian television held by the nation's top communications regulator, MSO Rogers Cable urged policymakers not to impose new fees for carriage of broadcast stations.

"If you're just going to sock the customers with $5 or $10 extra a month with nothing extra, there's going to be a real revolt,' CEO Ted Rogers said at a public hearing held by the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission. "We're going to have a big problem with that."

The extra fees for carriage of broadcast signals would impact cable operators as well as Canadian satellite TV services Bell ExpressVu and Star Choice. In addition to those discussions, CRTC regulators are considering whether certain domestic programmers should continue to be protected from foreign competition.
