CITY-DT Toronto – Technical change

1. The Commission approves the application by Rogers Broadcasting Limited (Rogers) to amend the broadcasting licence for the television programming undertaking CITY-DT Toronto in order to add a transitional digital rebroadcasting transmitter in Ottawa. The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with this application.
2. The new transmitter will operate on channel 17C with a maximum effective radiated power of 5,100 watts.
3. In its application, Rogers also requested that the transmitter be approved to operate on a post-transitional basis. Given that the broadcasting licence for CITY-DT Toronto will expire prior to 31 August 2011, the shut-down date for analog television transmission, the rebroadcasting transmitter cannot be considered for the post-transitional period at this time.
4. The Commission reminds the licensee that, pursuant to section 22(1) of the Broadcasting Act, this authority will only be effective when the Department of Industry notifies the Commission that its technical requirements have been met, and that a broadcasting certificate will be issued.
5. The transmitter must be operational at the earliest possible date and in any event no later than 31 August 2011.
6. In Revised licensing framework for over-the-air digital television services, Broadcasting Regulatory Policy CRTC 2010-69, 10 February 2010, the Commission revised the licensing framework for over-the-air digital television services. Rogers is encouraged to consult the policy and file the necessary requests in order to have its digital transmitters authorized in accordance with the revised licensing framework.
