TV/FILM/VIDEO:

Numeris’ Fall 2019 TV Diary Release indicates that Canadians are spending an average of 15.7 to 22.4 hours per week watching television. The Fall 2019 Diary was released Tuesday, reflecting the period from roughly Oct. 17 – Nov. 20. Kelowna failed to yield enough diary returns to support a release and is being suppressed. Numeris says sample returns were also low in Prince George-Kamloops and is recommending stations use survey averaging when looking at data for that market. The low sample returns, experienced in several small markets in both radio and TV, are the result of a combination of households moving away from landlines and more difficulty recruiting survey participants.

The Supreme Court of Canada (SCOC) has quashed a CRTC order that has prohibited simultaneous substitution of American ads during the Super Bowl since 2017. In a nine to two judgement in favour of Bell, which holds the Canadian broadcast rights, the SCOC found that the simsub ban order was issued “on the basis of an incorrect interpretation by the CRTC of the scope of its authority under section 9(1)(h) of the Broadcasting Act.” Bell Media blamed the ruling for a 39% decline in audience for the game in 2017 and a drop of $11 million in ad revenue. Read more here.

The CRTC has ruled that Bell “conferred an undue preference” on its discretionary sports service RDS and subjected Quebecor-owned TVA Sports to “an undue disadvantage” by packaging the two services in a different manner. The ruling is in reference to a March complaint from Quebecor after Bell included RDS in its “Bon” TV package, but excluded TVA Sports from the same bundle. The commission has directed Bell to include TVA Sports in the same offering as RDS, no later than Feb. 5. The CRTC also sided with Quebecor in a separate decision over a complaint from Bell that saw Videotron remove Bell’s Super Écran from its premium channel selection. In that case however, the commission decided Videotron did not give its own Club Illico channel undue preference. The CRTC said there was limited data to determine if the change had conclusively impacted subscriptions to Super Écran.
