The Canadian Radio television Telecommunications Commission is already scheduled to hold consultations on the future of television, beginning Oct. 24. The regulator wants to gather the views of Canadians on how they think the broadcasting system should function. Pick and pay prices is certain to be raised as an issue.
the big question is: Will (pick and pay) be the primary model, or will the response from the industry be even more attractive packaging? also note that service providers could raise prices for on demand programming if they see revenues decline, or begin to charge more for individual channels in markets where there is little competition, resulting in even higher overall monthly cable and satellite bills.
But content producers and independent specialty channel operators are running scared.
Pick and pay cable pricing could mean end of some channels
OTTAWA The federal government will have to give TV service providers the ability to rework contracts with television program suppliers if it wants true pricing for consumers, says one cable firm.
reality is that almost all of my content licenses prohibit me from unbundling any further. if the Harper government doesn tread carefully, it may end up hurting the consumers that it pledging to help Jordan 11 Low Infrared 23
The Harper government throne speech Wednesday outlined plans to mandate an unbundling of TV Nike Jordan Fusion Shoes offerings.
believe we can have it all. Communications, which has strongly opposed pick and pay, declined to comment Tuesday when asked about the pitfalls of such a pricing model.
optimistic that we can have pick and pay, we can have a valuable service and we can have Canadian content, said Engelhart.
Rogers has also experimented with pick and pay, saying the pricing scheme was popular while it was offered to customers in London, Ont. The experiment lasted only a few months, ending in March 2012. one cable provider per territory. As for pick and pay, I fear that its time has passed. I would have been thrilled to have it back when all channels weren full of garbage, but now? I won subscribe to a History (Discovery, Nature, Space) Channel full of TV crap. Road Truckers is not history. It is crap. I will subscribe to very little: what passes for news, one or two networks and that it. I will continue to get my real news off the internet (with no inane commentary!), and will either watch shows on Netflix or order series en toto from the BBC and watch those.
almost inevitable because, to the extent that pick and pay reduces the penetration of all channels and therefore reduces subscriber and advertising revenues some will just simply not be (economically viable), he said.
I think pick and pay is long overdue. Most of the channels that I now have in a package are of no Nike Air Jordan 6 Low Chrome
Some channels rarely watched by viewers will certainly disappear as a pick and pay system comes into place, said Michael Hennessy, president and CEO of the Canadian Media Production Association.
use to me. I don need or want 20 channels of non English language, nor do I want many of the other channels that I don have any interest in. We are paying far too much for service not to have a choice of our viewing pleasure. I like to add that we should also have a choice of service providers. It seems that Rogers, Shaw Cogeco have divided up the territories so that we the consumer don have a choice of cable companies. Why is that? Shouldn we have the choice? not the cable companies!!!
But as much as he might like to further unbundle his company channel lineup, Telus chief marketing officer Dave Fuller said the company hands are tied.

by forcing service providers to adopt a pick and pay model, said Zoomer Media Moses Znaimer.
supportive of anything the government can do under the current regulatory regime, says Fuller.
In the meantime, there is nothing preventing service providers from adopting new pricing models on their own.
packaging is disallowed or handled insensitively, I afraid the Canadian public will wake up to find they are paying a whole lot more for a whole lot less. insiders warn that forcing an a la carte pricing model on cable and satellite TV providers could result in some television channels disappearing, and likely won mean lower prices for consumers.
government may be well meaning, but they are badly misinformed about how things work in television, Znaimer, well known as a Canadian television trailblazer, said in a statement.
But those consultations could take months, and developing regulations even longer. And that means it could be 2015 or beyond _ well after the next federal election _ before cable and satellite TV distributors are mandated to adopt a new pricing model.

There are already hints of the battles that lay ahead.
Cable companies will demand more pricing from the television networks that supply the programming, said Rogers vice president Kenneth Engelhart. But if there is more flexibility, consumers, producers and the distribution companies will all benefit, he said.
The move will be for Canada broadcast sector, say industry watchers who see pick and pay as a necessity with broadcasters trying to compete with increasingly popular online services, including Netflix.
It also likely to spark a war among broadcasters and service providers and will certainly mean a ramping up of marketing by the cable and satellite companies to convince customers to stay with bundled packages.
very worried, said one television executive who did not want to be identified. every broadcaster, at least initially, would be worse off under pick and pay, he said.
