Canadians can get Cheaper Cable TV packages than Before.



The CRTC (The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission) stipulated telecoms to make basic cable TV package no more than $25/month. That means customers can get a way to receive cheaper cable TV.

The CRTC's points is to let Canadians obtain basic TV channels(CBC, CTV etc.) with a low price instead of many channels they never watch with additional costs.

Most of Canadian telecoms offer skinny TV packages, including Bell, Rogers and Shaw. The interesting thing is that their price strategies chase CRTC's $25 tightly. 

 

It will be totally different if you take a look at CIK Telecom's Skinny Basic package. It's only $19.99, and includes around 50 well-known channels. Of course, there are lots of additional add-on channels costing from $7.99 to $19.99 per month.





Except that, the CRTC's next step is to make cable providers have to make every single channel available to customers on a pick-and-play model, starting from 1st of December. I believe Canadian customers may enjoy more affordable price by the end of 2016.
