    CRTC OKs Current TV Canada

    Current TV heading to Canada

    CRTC OKs launch, with user-generated mandate



    Al Gore's Current TV has received a green light to go north with the Canadian Broadcasting Corp.

    The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission has OK'd a Canadian launch for the user-generated TV news and current affairs service in the fall.

    The CRTC ordered that 35% of the user-generated content on the proposed Current Canada service, a joint venture with Canada's public broadcaster, must be Canadian-driven.

    The Canadian Current TV service will feature a Web site and a domestic digital channel.


    And in line with Canadian ownership rules, the CBC will hold an 80% interest in the operating company Current Media Canada, with the U.S.-based Current TV retaining a 20% voting interest.

    Unfortunately, the channel seems to be dead; but it may be just as well. Current TV in the US is apparently not doing all that well and is in the midst of an overhaul.
