Shaw Purchase of Global and free Satellite TV
This probably old news for everybody, but I see a couple of days ago the CRTC approved Shaw's purchase of Canwest (Global TV). As part of Shaw's purchase here's a qoute from the agreement:
As part of the CRTC approval, Shaw will spend $180.1 million over the next seven years to transition 67 analog transmitters in smaller markets to digital; provide and install a satellite receiver and dish at no charge to viewers who lose access to the over-the-air signals; produce new two-hour morning shows in Regina, Saskatoon, Winnipeg, Montreal and Halifax; buy more programming from independent producers and invest in new media content that will support news programming and programs of national interest.
