  • CRTC tweaks TV system, helps consumers as regulator rejects extra cable charges
    Friday October 31st 2008

    Canada’s broadcasting regulator has introduced changes to give Canadians greater TV viewing choices while rejecting a controversial demand that would have seen monthly cable TV bills increase. The CRTC’s much-awaited review, released Thursday, was expected to be a wholesale makeover of the industry that many see as overregulated and under severe economic strains. Instead, Canadians got a minor makeover that will allow for greater competition, more but still restricted viewer choices, and only impacts the economics of the industry on the margins.

Only faint bright spots from Sony’s gaming and pictures segments tempered the earnings downside. Sony Pictures posted a 3.4% rise in quarterly sales to 196.1 billion yen ($2 billion) on the back of a strong worldwide showing from “Hancock,” “Step Brothers” and “Pineapple Express.” Home entertainment contributions came from “21” and “Vantage Point.”

  • Canadian dollar’s loss could be Hollywood’s gain
    Thursday October 30th 2008

    When the Canadian dollar dropped to a three-year low last week, Judy Ranan wasted no time getting the message out to Hollywood. “82 cents! 82 cents! 82 cents!” blared the e-mail she sent to 400 studio executives and industry professionals. Ordinarily, a falling currency would not be something to crow about. But as senior marketing director with the Toronto Ontario Film Office in Los Angeles, Ranan hopes the favorable exchange rate will help entice more Hollywood filmmakers north of the border.
