  • CRTC begins hearing proposals for pick-and-pay, other cable TV changes
    Wednesday September 10th 2014

    Extended broadcast regulations into the online space would hinder innovative content streaming companies like YouTube, Netflix and others, Google Canada told the CRTC in hearings on the future of television on Monday.

    Monday September 08th 2014

    One juicy starring role per year is just not enough for some A-listers. After all, luxury beach houses don’t pay for themselves. At this year’s Toronto International Film Festival, a huge variety of major players — many of them already familiar to fest-goers — are pulling double and sometimes triple duty in new projects. Now the challenge for viewers is keeping all their efforts apart.
