The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) announced this morning that distributors across the country, including those in English-language markets, will have to offer ARTV to all Canadians who want to subscribe to the service.
ARTV reflects the vitality of artistic and cultural life in French-speaking minority communities through its programs produced outside Quebec, but also in many of its other productions.
