- (b) an educational authority responsible for an educational television programming service; or
- (c) the station “A” Atlantic.
Definitions — Broadcasting Distribution Regulations
(2) In these Regulations, the expressions “Canadian programming service”, “comparable”, “customer”, “DTH distribution undertaking”, “educational authority”, “educational television programming service”, “format”, “licence”, “licensed”, “licensed area”, “licensee”, “non-Canadian television station”, “official contour”, “operator”, “programming service”, “regional television station”, “relay distribution undertaking”, “subscriber”, “subscription television system” and “terrestrial distribution undertaking” have the same meanings as in section 1 of the Broadcasting Distribution Regulations.
2. These Regulations apply to a person that is licensed to carry on a distribution undertaking, other than a person that is licensed to carry on
- (a) a subscription television system;
- (b) a relay distribution undertaking; or
- (c) an undertaking that only rebroadcasts the radiocommunications of one or more other licensed undertakings.
Terrestrial distribution undertaking
3. (1) The operator of a Canadian television station may ask a licensee that carries on a terrestrial distribution undertaking to delete the programming service of another Canadian television station or a non-Canadian television station and substitute for it the programming service of a local television station or regional television station.
DTH distribution undertaking
(2) The operator of a Canadian television station may ask a licensee that carries on a DTH distribution undertaking
- (a) to delete the programming service of a non-Canadian television station and substitute for it the programming service of the Canadian television station; or
- (b) in respect of subscribers located within the Grade B official contour or noise-limited bounding official contour of the Canadian television station, to delete the programming service of another Canadian television station and substitute for it the programming service of the Canadian television station.
Obligation to carry out request
4. (1) Except as otherwise provided under these Regulations or in a condition of its licence, a licensee that receives a request referred to in section 3 must carry out the requested deletion and substitution if the following conditions are met:
- (a) the request is in writing and is received by the licensee at least four days before the day on which the programming service to be substituted is to be broadcast;
- (b) the programming service to be deleted and the programming service to be substituted are comparable and are to be broadcast simultaneously;
- (c) the programming service to be substituted has the same format as, or a higher format than, the programming service to be deleted; and

Discontinuation of substitution
(6) A licensee may discontinue a deletion and substitution if the deleted and substituted programming services are not, or are no longer, comparable and broadcast simultaneously.
5. (1) A licensee that deletes a programming service and substitutes another programming service for it must exercise due diligence to ensure that the deletion and substitution do not result in errors in the provision of the service and that they cause only minimal disruption of the service to its subscribers.
(2) If a licensee deletes and substitutes a programming service in a manner that, through its own actions, results in recurring substantial errors, the licensee must provide compensation to its customers, unless it establishes that it exercised due diligence to avoid the errors.
(3) For the purposes of this section, an error occurs if the deletion and substitution of the programming service are not carried out simultaneously or the video or audio components of the programming service are affected as a result of the deletion and substitution.
