V network, CFAP-TV Québec, CFJP-TV Montréal, CFKM-TV Trois-Rivières, CFKS-TV Sherbrooke, CFRS-TV Saguenay and CFJP-DT Montréal –Amendment to the definition of "broadcast day"


The Commission approves the application by V Interactions Inc. to amend the definition of the term "broadcast day" for the purposes of the conditions of licence for the V network and for the television programming undertakings CFAP-TV Québec, CFJP-TV Montréal, CFKM-TV Trois-Rivières, CFKS-TV Sherbrooke, CFRS-TV Saguenay and CFJP-DT Montréal. The Commission received an intervention in support of this application.


The broadcast day for the above-mentioned services is currently defined as the 18-hour period beginning at 7:00 a.m. each day. The licensee requested that the definition of the broadcast day for these services be amended, effective 1 September 2008, to mean the 18-hour period beginning at 6:00 a.m. each day. The licensee stated that the retroactivity will allow it to correct some logging inaccuracies.


The Commission finds that it is appropriate to apply the revised definition. Accordingly, the definition of "broadcast day" for the purpose of the above-mentioned services' conditions of licence will read as follows:

Beginning 1 September 2008, "broadcast day" means an 18-hour period beginning each day at 6:00 a.m., or any other period approved by the Commission.


In approving this application, the Commission has taken into account the fact that the revised definition of the broadcast day will not affect the conditions of licence pertaining to the nature of the services or any other condition of licence.
