ACCESS – The Education Station – Licence amendment – Correction

  1. In ACCESS – The Education Station – Licence amendment, Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2010-205, 8 April 2010, the Commission approved an application by Learning and Skills Television of Alberta Limited to amend the broadcasting licence for the specialty television programming undertaking known as ACCESS – The Education Station in order to increase its flexibility in fulfilling its described video programming commitments. The new condition of licence relating to described video programming, as set out in that decision, did not reflect this service's previous obligations relating to the broadcast of such programming. The corrected condition of licence shall read as follows (changes in bold):

The licensee may fulfill its commitments for described video with programming from the following categories: 2(b) Long-form documentary, 7(a) Ongoing dramatic series, 7(b) Ongoing comedy series (sitcoms), 7(c) Specials, mini-series or made-for-TV feature films, 7(d) Theatrical feature films aired on TV, 7(e) Animated television programs and films, 7(f) Programs of comedy sketches, improvisations, unscripted works, stand-up comedy, 7(g) Other drama, 9 Variety and 11 General entertainment and human interest, as well as programming targeted to children.
