Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Canada's official broadcasting regulator has demanded that adult TV channels show more domestically-produced porn, saying that a flood of foreign smut is dominating their output.

It seems that Canadian regulations require that 35 per cent of programming on any TV channel must be produced beneath the maple-leaf banner, and apparently certain Toronto-based outlets have violated this wholesome ruling.

According to the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission:

[The naughty broadcasters] may have failed to comply with its conditions of licence relating to its nature of service definition by ... providing less than 35% Canadian programming over the broadcast year and during the evening broadcast period ...

The rule against too much foreign-produced content is intended to safeguard Canadian jobs and showcase Canadian talent.

A hearing (not a viewing) has been scheduled for April at which it will be decided whether or not the broadcasters are guilty of using too much imported grumble. Everyone involved refused to comment on the case to the AFP.

The grumblecasters are also in trouble for failing to provide enough closed-captioning in order that the linguistically- or auditorially-challenged be able to savour the full quality of the dialogue on offer. ®
