The federal government's March 2012 reduction to CBC/Radio-Canada's appropriation requires us, among other measures, to reduce or cancel certain programs and services. We will continue to implement Strategy 2015, but at a slower pace.
We've launched important new digital offerings:
- Our new CBC News mobile app and redesigned CBC.ca website offer a quicker, cleaner digital experience that gives Canadians real-time access to the news and information that matters to them.
- Radio-Canada's TOU.TV continues to raise the bar, launching a new mobile website, a new application for android devices, and announcing an agreement with LG to make TOU.TV available directly on next generation television sets.
- Espace.mu, Radio-Canada's new online music service, offers listeners over 80,000 musical selections under seven genres (chanson/pop, classical, rock, country/folk, hip-hop, jazz, and world music) as well as unique online music features and ways for sharing the content.
