  • DHX Media has received approval from the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission to allow broadcast advertising, effective immediately, on its pay television channel, Family Channel.

    “DHX Media welcomes the CRTC’s decision to permit all specialty and pay television services to broadcast advertising,” said Joe Tedesco, Senior Vice-President and General Manager, DHX Television. “It represents the next logical step in the implementation of the Let’s Talk TV decision, when genre protection was eliminated, and it ensures that pay and specialty channels will now be on a level field.”

    Family Channel offers  family television entertainment in high-definition, multiplatform environment. Family airs a unique mix of top-rated Canadian and acquired series, movies and specials, and is also home to F2N – an entertainment haven for teens that features high quality programs after 9 p.m. Family Channel subscribers have access to the Family Channel App, Family OnDemand and Family Online.
