Future of Canadian TV

Recommended Posts

The standard "Hollywood" / big network delivery model is dying. The smaller producers have so many more ways to get their content to people now.

How does including American broadcast networks ("4 + 1") promote 'canadian culture' ?

Apparently You're the expert on that. Let's hear it.

That's part of the problem....relentless comparisons to "Hollywood". The Coen brothers from Minnesota have "done well" large or small, but even if they didn't, there is no hue and cry for legal restrictions to protect Minnesota culture. The best state film boards can do is provide financial incentives and foster healthy markets for media distribution from all sources.

Yes, and I still support them doing that.

I'm starting to lose interest in regular tv programming as there are are very few shows worthy of watching and those that i do watch are nearly 50% commercials, most of which are that scruffy bum on the Trivago commercials..

DVR FTW.

Best TV shows on today are on HBO, Gotta pay an extra $21 for that though.

What happened today at the CRTC hearings? Last week the chairman of the CRTC gave the CEO from Netflix until today to comply with the demand for detailed info, or else.

The CEO failed to quiver.

Did Netflix comply?

Netflix is "calling the commission's bluff" to remove a regulation exemption for streaming service in Canada.

Damn Americans.....

Netflix refused to hand over their private data.

As well they should have. The threat from the CRTC was insane. "We have no jurisdiction over you, but if you don't co-operate, we will give that jurisdiction to ourselves".

Applause.

Time to end the farce and dramatically decrease regulation, including the increasingly silly Can Con requirements for TV. The govt has other venues and means to promote 'culture'.

The CRTC has backed itself into a corner....Netflix is not a broadcaster and is not licensed by the CRTC....it is an internet service easily accessed by Canadians even if the government tries to block Netflix.

What an odd circumstance....

if not hockey... how about Harper's incessant want to push/force a militiarized bent on Canadian history... culture?

I'm confused as to what you are getting at here. Criticizing things that don't matter doesn't really help society, does it waldo? I would say the CPC and LPC have no interest in fostering true social justice. What's your opinion, waldo?

I read somewhere that the CRTC criticized Netflix for highlighting recently watched programming for its Canadian customers when they log on instead of Canadian content and French language programming.

True Social Justice? Where everyone is able to live comfortably. Where the riches of a country benefit all. Public schools promote social justice, waldo. I'm sorry you have no clue what social justice is. You hate the CPC and Harper yet you mock social justice. Seems like you are a one issue pony who talks out of both sides of his mouth when he doesn't know something he pretends he does.

We already know that Harper is worse than Hitler.

Where would you rank Wally on the scale, with Satan at the bottom and Justin Trudeau at the top?

I asked you to define your use of the phrase "true social justice"... and that's what you come back with? Other than in your imagination, where's the mocking? You want to talk about a "one-trick pony", see your blathering ongoing, thread-upon-thread references to "Neo-Liberals". Ever since I had the apparent audacity to ask you to define what, to you, a Neo-Liberal was, you've taken up your stalking act... repeatedly calling me out, completely out of the blue within threads I'm not even participating in... even in your status updates for NeoLiberalSake!

it is comforting to realize you value the waldo so much as to create a signature reference! :lol: Apparently, the recent waldo attention directed your way has proved fruitful! If you'd like to have that tempered... or if you'd like a handicap spot... let me know, hey!

I like how you speak of yourself in the third person, it is really hip.

overwhere? Thankee... the waldo: putting the hip in hipster! But really, as much as you want it to be... this isn't about me... it's a thread about tee-vee. Carry on!

Waldo, why do you choose to be ignorant? I provided you many articles on neo-liberalism. It's funny that you constantly blather on about Harper yet you have no clue what neo-liberalism is. Oh, the irony I tell ya....the irony.

You want to be the know-it-all, yet when a subject that you know nothing about comes up, you provide a hit and run type response. You and I think alike on many issues, but you need to stop pretending you know everything.
