Question Super Channel Denied Amends To Licence?

It appears Super Channel tried to amend its licence and was denied by the CRTC.

Looks like they were trying to cut back previously committed funding for Canadian content acquisition, which they agreed to do and then didn't do.

Superchannel sounds like a typical Canadian broadcaster that makes a lot of high flying commitments to get a license and then tries to back out a few years later. I don't like the way Superchannel operates in general. A lot of their series content is cheap specialty channel or network content from the US and Australia. It's the type of stuff that should be on regular specialty channels like FX, Showtime or Bravo (and often is.) Their movies tend to be low budget stuff as well. A lot of Superchannel's programming is delayed or second run showings. There is no way Superchannel is worth the $16 or so that they charge for it. There's just enough good, timely content to make it worth about half that. It's nowhere near the quality or value of the similarly priced TMN/HBO Canada bundle. If Superchannel is having problems, they need to look at their product and quit blaming others.
