CRTC approves new TV channels

CRTC approves new TV channels

OTTAWA (CP) - New specialty TV channels dedicated to soccer, cricket and equestrian events have been approved by the CRTC, the federal broadcast regulator.

They include Soccer Television and RCS Television, both proposed by the Telelatino Network (TLN). The first would provide coverage of professional and amateur soccer matches as well as documentaries and news programs devoted to the sport. The second would be devoted to soccer, cricket and rugby.

Olympic Films won licences for both an English and French language version of Equestrian Planet, programming from the horse world including racing.

Asian Television Network International received licences for ATN, the Asian Sports Network and ATN Cricket Channels I and II, pay services that would provide coverage of live cricket matches from around the world.

Cookie Jar Entertainment, a producer of children's television programming, was granted a licence for Cookie Jar Educational TV, which would include core curriculum educational programming in such areas as language, math, science and technology. The application had been opposed by Corus Entertainment, owner of the preschooler channel Treehouse TV and part owner of Teletoon. A French-language equivalent was also granted.

All the licences are for a category 2 service, which means cable and satellite providers are not obliged to provide carriage. Licence holders and carriers must negotiate an agreement before a channel is carried.
