CANADA IS NOT BROADCASTING ENOUGH HOME-GROWN PORNOGRAPHY – CRTC, OTTAWA

CRTC1    For failing to broadcast sufficient levels of Canadian-made pornography — and failing to close-caption said pornography properly — a trio of TORONTO-based erotica channels has earned a reprimand from the Canadian Radio-television & Telecommunications Commission (a federal government agency).

Wednesday, March 5/2014, the CRTC issued a broadcast notice saying AOV Adult Movie Channel, XXX Action Clips and the gay-oriented Maleflixxx were all failing to reach the required 35% threshold for Canadian content.  Based on a 24-hour broadcast schedule, that translates to about 8.5 hours of Canadian erotica a day. 

The notice was issued as a result of Channel Zero’s efforts to renew licences for all three erotica channels. The regulator will review the “instances of apparent non-compliance” at an April 28 hearing in Gatineau, Quebec.

So let’s get to work, people!

  1. Only in Canada! Bureaucracy runs amok, again.
