Application 2010-1446-4, received 3 September 2010

CHNU-TV Fraser Valley and CHNU-TV-1 Victoria – Licence amendment

1.      The Commission approves the application by Zoomer Media Inc., on behalf of the Christian Channel Inc., to amend the broadcasting licence for the television programming undertaking CHNU-TV Fraser Valley in order to add a post-transition digital transmitter in Fraser Valley (CHNU-DT) and in Victoria (CHNU-DT-1). The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with this application.

2.      The new transmitter in Fraser Valley will operate on channel 47 with an average effective radiated power (ERP) of 7,800 watts (maximum ERP of 21,400 watts with an effective height of antenna above average terrain [EHAAT] of 335 metres).

3.      The new transmitter in Victoria will operate on channel 21 with an average ERP of 1,600 watts (maximum ERP of 3,500 watts with an EHAAT of 94.4 metres).

4.      In Revised licensing framework for over-the-air digital television services, Broadcasting Regulatory Policy CRTC 2010-69, 10 February 2010, the Commission stated that it would not issue separate licences for digital television transmitters. Instead it would authorize the operation of digital transmitters by way of an amendment to the existing licence that would allow the simulcast of the associated service’s programming on a digital transmitter. In light of the Commission’s determinations set out in that policy, the Commission has considered this application as an amendment to the existing licence.

5.      The Commission reminds the licensee that, pursuant to section 22(1) of the Broadcasting Act, this licence amendment 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.

6.      The transmitters must be operational at the earliest possible date and in any event no later than 31 August 2011. The Commission expects the licensee to inform it in writing once these transmitters are in operation.
