  • DTV allots plan SMBR-006-08 submission Feb. 18, 2009
    remaining OTA TV viewers is difficult to justify in many markets given the current economic circumstances facing the private television broadcasting sector and indeed many Canadian industries 10 Nevertheless the CAB has been advised that many of its TV members do intend to apply for post transition DTV transmitters in the coming years especially in the larger TV markets Since a majority of such stations would use their current analog channels for digital services they would need to make flash cut transitions that could take several months to plan and execute Consequently many of these conversions are likely to occur toward the latter part of the transition period Therefore the CAB suggests that the Department s application processing personnel will need to accommodate in their work load planning the expected volume of requests for such consideration 11 We do not believe that this situation can be mitigated through the early implementation of temporary DTV facilities on transitional channels At this late date most stations implementing OTA DTV services will likely opt to do so on their permanent channels given that converting transmitters from transitional to permanent channels would trigger even greater expenditures 12 Considering the above private broadcasters are diligently seeking ways to ensure that all viewers no matter where they may reside in Canada will have access by 2011 to high quality domestic digital TV services delivered through a variety of distribution methods To this end a number of technical alternatives to the conversion of a majority of the existing local analog OTA transmitters are being explored Proposals in this regard may be brought forward shortly in the context of upcoming CRTC licence renewal hearings However implementation of alternatives could take considerable time since related regulatory and policy changes may be required before they can be put in place 13 Consequently the CAB recommends that certain procedures referenced in SMBR 006 08 should be amended Specifically the Department should refrain from removing DTV channel associations that relate to current analog facilities until at least five years after the analog termination date During this time incumbent broadcasters should have the right of first refusal to use their associated DTV allotments This is because one of the technical alternatives for the early provision of cost effective OTA DTV could involve transmitter sharing Under this scheme several stations in a market would implement standard definition SDTV services by occupying a pre determined portion of a single transmitter s digital multiplex If channel associations are removed from such stations prematurely this could prevent the subsequent migration of each programming service to its own HDTV multiplex at a later date 14 However once channel associations are removed the CAB believes that existing broadcasters that have implemented OTA DTV transmitters or who may intend to do so should be given the first opportunity to apply to use any allotments that may not have been taken up by others 15 DTV conversion will position broadcasters for the future enhancement of TV services perhaps including those targeted
