Does anybody have the complete CRTC Mandatory Distribution List for Skinny Basic? I was told by Shaw Direct that CBC Newsworld is on that list but not the french equivalent RDI. So I have to pay $15 more if I want it, because it's part of the pick5 package. There also the TSN vs RDS inequity. In English, you get 8 channels for your $8 TSN bundle (Golf and OLN are thrown in). In French, it's 2 channels for $8 (RDS & RDS2).
EDIT: RDI is included outside Québec. CBC NN is included only in Québec. Some kind of a minority language order from the CRTC. I guess the question is now why are news networks not compulsory in both official languages?
