Dear Minister Glover,

Long time.

As part of Phase 3 of the CRTC’s “Talk TV” initiative, the Commission is asking Canadians about the value of OTA TV in Canada with respect to access to local TV stations and whether OTA is needed any longer.

The deadline to file a comment is June 25, 2014.

Here is the question they are asking about OTA:

“Q24. Is regulatory intervention necessary to maintain access to local television stations and, if so, how could this best be achieved? Given that the vast majority of Canadians receive television services through a cable or satellite subscription, are there compelling reasons to maintain and support OTA transmission? Would the discontinuation of OTA transmission allow local television stations to devote more resources to programming? If the Commission determines that OTA transmission should no longer be required, under what timeframe should this be implemented?”

Please encourage Canadians to comment here. I suggest OTA TV viewers include specific examples of how OTA TV personally helps them access local TV, and/or, how a lack of OTA TV restrains their access to local TV.

Best,

Steven
