Canadian Government Wants Open Choice of Cable TV Channels for Consumers

To allow cable TV users to only pay for the services they want is the goal of the government in Canada. The Industry Minister, James Moore spoke of this move by the leadership in order to make life easier and full of free choices for the ordinary citizen. The masses ought to have their say in such matters. And though life was not fair, it was the government’s job to facilitate justice and freedom in the nation. 

One critic has however started the finger pointing by saying that the government’s stance reeks off double standards. According to Glenn Thibeault, for the past half decade, the government has not done anything substantial to help the masses in the way of technology or entertainment. 

Besides this the cable TV action taken by the government is most likely to be resisted by broadcasters. And the challenge from the Net is there as well. However, the government is adamant that it wants to put the consumers at the helm. They will be the captains of their ship and they will be the masters of their fate. It will take some revamping and readjustment but then that is what life was all about. 

In the past, most subscribers got a whole bundle of channels that they didn’t want to watch. Now however that would be no more. The times were changing. And this is the Canadian government’s way of reminding the citizens that it is on their side.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
