** CANADA. CRTC on the Canadian wood business

CRTC APPROVAL: NORTHERN PEAKS PORNOGRAPHY CHANNEL CLEARS FIRST HURDLE
GRANT ROBERTSON, MEDIA REPORTER, August 15, 2008
http://www.theglobeandmail.com/servlet/story/LAC.20080815.PORN15/TPStory/TPNational/Television/

A Canadian pay-television pornography channel - which is pledging to
show at least 50 per cent domestic content at night - has been
approved by federal regulators this week, but it must now try to
persuade cable and satellite companies to carry the service.

The digital channel, which is to be called Northern Peaks, was
approved Wednesday by the Canadian Radio-television and
Telecommunications Commission, after Alberta-based Real Productions
first applied for the licence in October of 2007.

In its application, the company said the proposed service would be
"Canada's first adult video channel offering significant Canadian
adult content." Northern Peaks will produce its own movies, in
addition to events and series from Canada, the company told the
regulator.

"During each broadcast year, the licensee shall devote not less than
50 per cent of the evening broadcast period to Canadian programming,"
say CRTC documents outlining the decision.

Before Northern Peaks will be given its licence, it must show the
CRTC that at least one cable or satellite carrier has agreed to pick
up the service. The channel has three years to find an agreement or
risk losing the licence.

The channel is a Category 2 pay television service, meaning cable and
satellite carriers are not required to pick up the channel and the
company must negotiate with each carrier.

The CRTC said it did not receive any interventions at hearings held
in May, meaning there were no other broadcasters or interest groups
who registered their opposition to the bid.

According to the licence, Northern Peaks is restricted to certain
genres, including: drama and comedy, long-form documentary,
miniseries, theatrical feature films, game shows and human-interest
programming. It will not carry any high-definition programming,
according to company documents.

Based in Sherwood Park, Alta., Real Productions produces adult
content for Starz, Playboy TV and HBO. "Northern Peaks' broadcast day
will start at 6 a.m. and run a full 24 hours," the company told the
CRTC in its application.

If it launches, Northern Peaks will be required to spend a minimum of
25 per cent of its subscriber revenues on Canadian programming,
including at least $1-million in its first broadcast year. All
programs must be close-captioned, as per CRTC rules.

In approving the licence, the CRTC also issued a reminder to cable
and satellite companies that "due to the adult nature of the
programming, this service shall only be distributed at the specific
request of the subscriber." The carriers are not permitted to package
the service so that customers must buy Northern Peaks to get other
channels (via Kevin Redding, ABDX via DXLD)

Some Catholic bishop sounding off on this. I'm a bit surprised this is passed off as "news" rather than a letter to the editor. Misleading a bit.

I just found it amusing is all, and thought I'd pass it on.

Especially when the video stars Ron Jeremy.

I'd laugh if it's the same Catholic bishop who started whining and complaining when TELUS introduced pornographic content on their cellphones. Some people just don't like others having fun.

Disagree. Yunjin Kim is a perfectly fine actress. It's just that for the last year and a half, her only role on the show has been to say "Where is my husband?" over and over again.
