Fox News NORTH won't be forced onto your cable package - yet

CRTC refuses Sun TV’s bid for preferred status on dial - The Globe and Mail
The CRTC has denied the application by Quebecor (owner of "Fox North" aka SUN TV) to have their news channel distributed by all cable and satellite firms. Quebeor argued that their new news channel would be a unique genre in Canada. The CRTC said, uh, I don' think so - "there was little to distinguish Sun TV from other all-news services"

Of course, Quebecor will re-apply, rewording their application.
