    New porn channel lets Canadians strut their stuff
    By Ashleigh Patterson1 hour, 23 minutes ago


    Canadians who may have become tired of being passed over as porn stars will have a new, home-grown outlet to showcase their erotic talents.
    Federal regulators have granted Alberta-based Real Productions approval to launch a new digital pornography channel, which promises to serve up at least 50 percent domestic content.
    The Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) approved the Category 2 pay-television service on Wednesday, allowing Northern Peaks to become "Canada's first adult video channel offering significant Canadian adult content."
    "I think as Canadians there is a bit of a tiredness in seeing all American stuff," Shaun Donnelly, president of Real Productions, said during an interview on Friday.
    "There is always that thrill for something that is local and you get the sense that these are people you can meet at the supermarket."
    The CRTC only required 15 percent Canadian content, but Northern Peaks agreed to provide "not less than 50 percent of the broadcast day and not less than 50 percent of the evening broadcast period to Canadian programming," according to the license.
    "We want to be Canada's adult channel and I think to do that, 15 percent wouldn't cut it," Donnelly said.
    Real Productions boasts the largest collection of Canadian adult-themed content in the country with more than 200 film titles and 75 television episodes in its library.
    The regulator stipulated the license will only be issued once Real Productions enters into an agreement with at least one licensed distributor.
    Donnelly, who has also produced television programs for Playboy TV in the U.S. and Granada Television in Britain, said all five major Canadian cable and satellite carriers have expressed interest in hosting the channel and are reviewing the proposal.
    "I've been in touch with the cable companies throughout the process and went ahead with it based on the interest we had," he said
    Northern Peaks will be restricted to certain types of programming including long-form documentaries, dramatic series, feature films, game shows, mini-series, sitcoms and made-for-TV movies.
    The CRTC received no interventions in connection with the application, which was initially launched in October 2007.

    I wonder if Canadians look different than Americans when they are naked. Is that why this channel wants to have 50% Canadian content? Judging by the TV and film credits, a lot of what we see down here is supposed to be based in an American location, but is often filmed in Canada due to lower production cost.

    And Moreluck, maybe they will have a show about meatballs for you......:wink2:

    Its our government that does this.
    Its like living in China... I got this from
    www.media-awareness.ca
    Under the Commercial Radio Policy, 35 per cent of all music aired each week on all AM and FM stations must be Canadian. In addition, 35 per cent of music broadcast between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. Monday through Friday must consist of Canadian content.
    Private television licensees generally must achieve a yearly Canadian content level of at least 60 per cent overall, measured over the course of the entire broadcast day, and at least 50 per cent between 6 p.m. and midnight.
    Moreluck,this is probobly one of those specialty channels that you have to pay a price,like the all hockey or all football channel.I think our government has too much time on thier hands.
