CRTC rules cable companies must offer pick-and-pay channels, $25 basic package
The CRTC introduced new rules today that among other things will require cable and satellite companies offer customers a basic channels package.
The cost of the “skinny basic” package will be capped at $25 and will include all local and regional channels.
It’s the latest result from the CRTC’s Let’s Talk TV hearings held in the fall. The CRTC hinted last summer that it would be open to a pick-and-pay option on top of a basic package.
