OTTAWA-GATINEAU, May 25, 2011 — The Canadian Radio-television and
Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) is asking Canadians to provide data
and information on online broadcasting services and their impact on the
Canadian communications system.

“The digital environment is providing Canadians with more programming
choices than ever before,” said Konrad von Finckenstein, Q.C., Chairman of
the CRTC. “Canadians have access to libraries of online content that can
originate from anywhere in the world, and which can be watched on
different screens. This fact-finding exercise will give us a better
understanding of the dynamic and innovative environment as it continues to
evolve.”

As part of its mandate to supervise the Canadian broadcasting system, the
CRTC has investigated similar technological and consumer trends in the
past. For example, in 2006, the CRTC prepared a report on the future
environment facing the Canadian broadcasting system. In 2009, the CRTC
released a report on broadcasting services in official-language minority
communities.

The CRTC is gathering data and information:

at the request of the most significant members of the Canadian
the communications industry, as expressed in a letter dated April 1, 2011,
and
further to a resolution of the Standing Committee on Canadian
Heritage, which was included in its March 2011 report, Impacts of Private
Television Ownership Changes and the Move Towards New Viewing Platforms.

Interested parties are invited to comment on a number of topics related to
the digital environment. They may submit their comments by June 27, 2011.
They may do so by completing the online form [insert link], by writing to
