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.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.
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.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.
Using a * or % to pretend like its not a swear word is not allowed.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."
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.for sensitive American ears and eyes.
