In Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2008-170, the CRTC has approved an application for Northern Peaks, a national, English-language Category 2 pay television service that would consist of adult programming.

The applicant, a numbered corporation 1058204 Alberta Ltd., indicated that it would also air the adult versions of Real Productions’ cable television series and produce its own adult movies, events and series.

The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with this application.

So, in reading the replies, am I to assume this would be some sort of porn channel? :p

What is the big deal about this channel, I don't get it?! The National Post had an article on the front page of all places?!? There have been quite a few other 'adult' channels approved by the CRTC so what the difference between those and this one?! I would have thought the Baseball channel would have gotten more press than a friggin' porn channel, seeing as how popular sports are.

Well I don't see how a baseball channel will survive. Not in this country.

And the porn channel is a big deal because it's all Canadian. But I think most of these girls probably want to make videos that no one they know would see.

It's not all Canadian content, it will air 50% in primetime, I'm not sure how much during non-primetime hours tho. I agree with PlayItSimple, I don't get why it's getting so much attention, it's probably due to the fact they they will air 50% Cancon and much of that in their own original work, but even so, I still don't get it. We have 5 other Canadian porn channels on the air right now and there have been numerous others approved, but apparently this one stands out for some reason.

Yeah, I don't get it. Perhaps it's says something about the kind of people who subscribe to the Post? I can see their pitch to advertisers now ... "More pervs read our paper than any other!".

Well, it doesn't appear to be an ownership issue. The new channel is owned by a numbered Alberta company run by Shaun Donnelly and Darlenne Mitty with no apparent ties to Canwest Global.

BTW, I've glanced through their supplementary brief. Here's a sample of their proposed programming.
The Boy Next Door

6 x 60 • Mind Engine Productions • Canada

Fans of Playboy TV’s outrageous new hit series would be amazed to learn that the show is shot in Edmonton and not Milwaukee as it appears. Following the real life adventures of Danny Vegas, a 20 year old pizza delivery boy who dreams of becoming the next Seymour Butts, the series pokes fun at every aspect of the porn industry. In order to make his first adult movie, Danny will have to overcome his own shyness, a complete lack of funds and his parents natural objection to his turning their basement into a porn studio.

Wet ‘n Wild Canadian Adventure

13 x 60 • Lexcalibur Films • Canada

The premise couldn’t be simpler – or more outrageous. Take three wannabe porn stars, load them into an RV and then drive them across Canada seducing men in every major city! Real, unscripted encounters as the girls behave very, very badly. In Vancouver, their poolside antics get them kicked out of a family motel. In Calgary, they spark the nudity on the Red Mile during the Flames 2004 Stanley Cup run. In Saskatoon, they nearly shut down a nightclub by doling out blowjobs in the bathrooms. In Toronto, one of the girls gets caught on camera at SkyDome. In Montreal, they discover a very sexy solution to the language barrier.

Jizz Quiz

10 x 60 • Real Productions • Canada

Without a doubt the kinkiest game show ever filmed! Contestant’s sexual prowess are put to the test in a variety of crazy sex games, including “American Sex Idol”, “Blindfold Bang”, “Hold Onto It” and “Porn Star Search”. Spin the ‘wheel of sex’and pray it doesn’t stop on the dreaded “Pig **** Wall”!
Hmmm... Maybe I should get cable after all. :D
