Can anyone confirm this? I've seen YouTube clips that had the "CTV" bug in the bottom corner and the F-word was not censored, but on the ABC feeds there must have been a delay and it was censored out.

True. CTV had no censorship. I assumed the same thing for ABC but all the news reports indicate that ABC bleeped it.

Articles stated ABC has a 7 second delay.

Ever since the Janet Jackson Super Bowl boob, most live events in the US have a delay (a few seconds) built in to allow censorship for sensitive American ears and eyes. I don't believe CTV has such a delay.

If you can view the programmes unsimsubbed, you can usually confirm the delay by switching between the Canadian and American Channels.

That's what I figured, I just wasn't sure whether CTV had their own feed available or if they were just using the direct ABC feed like they do for shows such as The View. Apparently they had their own feed. I think this is one of the reasons CTV enjoys the fact that Canadians have the U.S. channels on their dial. Without them, simsubbing wouldn't exist and the U.S. studios/networks probably wouldn't allow CTV to get their own live feed of the Oscars, they'd have to wait like all the other countries.

Yeah I can view unsimsubbed, but I wasn't at home during the show and I just saw the clips this morning on YouTube. Just wanted to see whether CTV actually had a clean feed and left the profanity in.

I heard a beep and I was watching on CTV HD.

In fact, it was about all i heard as I got bored with the whole show and was surfing the web when I heard it being beeped out.

A reminder from our rules

No vulgar or obscene language - if your mother or teacher told you not to use a word in public or writing then don't use it here. Remember when you signed up to the forums you checked that "you will not post any messages that are obscene, vulgar, sexually-oriented, hateful, threatening, or otherwise violative of any laws."
Using a * or % to pretend like its not a swear word is not allowed.

It's more likely to protect network affiliates from FCC fines. The righteous right in the US has a habit of forcing the FCC to impose fines on stations airing anything they don't like. I would hazard a guess that most people in the US don't care that much about the occasional swear word or wardrobe malfunction on network TV.

Classof83, So you are basically telling the CRTC that you want programming censored on Canadian network TV?! One of the perks of Canadian TV is that we can watch movies and other content without the content butchering that goes on in the US. Way to go dude. :confused:

Just a reminder that this thread is about the f-bomb at the academy awards and not about our hatred of simsub.
Lets focus on the original topic please.

Yes,

HEARD IT AT WORK:
Heard it in person, uncensored, over the air, analog 13, CTV Ottawa, CJOH TV at work.

May have a recording of it too - at home!
I was recording, concurrently, same program, same time, same station, at home off Ottawa, Rogers Analog Cable ch 7 CTV-CJOH.

I have yet to review the recording from home off analog cable to see if it was edited there ... I doubt it - F'bomb probably there too.

haa haa ... so I may actually have a recording of it !

Will be faithfully burned to DVD.
(minus the annoying commercials which I will edit out).

Gotcha! ( I hope ).
