Canadian T-V viewers now have a choice between beefy or slimmed-down cable or satellite services.
As of today, cable and satellite TV companies must offer their customers a “skinny basic” service package for 25-dollars or less as part of new
regulations adopted last year by the C-R-T-C.
Channel lineups must include at least 10 local or regional stations, educational programming and legislative channels.
While providers don’t have to include U-S networks, some are.
Consumers will also be able to add individual channels or bundles to the basic services.
