Default ckpr tv disaffiliation cbc

Just reading that CKPR TV THUNDER BAY has received approval to disaffliate from CBC earlier than aug 2016. I wonder if the few remaining affiliates like CHEX Peterborough CKWS Kingston,and the other 2 station in bc owned by Bell will be considering an early exit from their affiliation also.http://www.crtc.gc.ca/eng/archive/2014/2014-316.pdf

I wonder if CKPR will become a CTV Affiliate?

Doubt it. CHFD is owned by the same company and they were disaffiliated from CTV to be a Global channel but anything can happen.

I posted a question at Shaw's forum asking what will happen if CKPR isn't a CBC channel as Shaw only has one CBC channel.

They would either be independant or a City affiliate, those are about the only choices left. Unless CTV really wanted back into the market and they came to some sort of sweatheart deal.

CITY TV would be the best option given it's not available OTA in Thunder Bay, also since Rogers acquired HNIC, I'm sure they would love to add more stations to carry the CITY network feed since CITY will be showing games also on sat nights alongside CBC.

Did anyone notice in that decision the gentle nudge the CRTC was giving the CBC to investigate carriage from any of the broadcasters using subchannels..

It's not very bright yet, but the bulb at the CRTC at least is trying to illuminate... :-)

It's official CKPR TV is going to be a CTV Affiliate. Check out the link http://www.tbnewswatch.com/news/3454...urn-to-CKPR-TV.

congrats to ckpr tv..great move..far superior programming is so true..cbc doesn't hit the top ten except for hnic..I can't understand how these affiliates in peterborough, kingston, and the other couple of cities in b.c. survive being cbc affiliates.

The programming cost for being a CBC affiliate is pretty low. In fact many stations became unprofitable after disaffiliating from the CBC; CKVR, CFPL and CHRO are examples.

I wonder if they got complaints about missing CTV shows on SD since they only way to get CTV on Shaw was to subscribe to the timeshift package.

Personally I want CBC. HNIC and Marketplace are the 2 shows I watch. The shows that are CTV that I watch are on the US channel with no simsub.

Now hopefully we get CBC Toronto for HNIC.

DSGamby; I am reasonably sure that Thunder Bay will get a CBC station on basic cable. I believe the CRTC requires that cable companies offer CBC as part of the basic cable package. The CRTC requires that all cable systems carry CBC, Radio-Canada, TVA and APTN on basic cable. I would assume that CBC Toronto will replace the local CBC feed in Thunder Bay on Shaw Cable.

but here's the thing Bigoranget, private stations rely on ad revenue and programming that people want to watch. People watch american programming a lot more than CBC. Simple fact. Look at the BBM's every week. It could cost less to be a cbc affiliate I don't know, but if your viewers are not watching your station because you're a cbc affiliate, there's a big problem.
