I am happy to see that Sun TV has been granted an operating license by the CRTC and will now be going ahead with a 24 hour news broadcast in March. When it becomes available, I plan to subscribe. Today's poll question; do you intend to subscribe to Sun TV News? I'm sure some of you would like to have it, but can't necessarily afford to buy an expanded cable package. They were unlikely to ever win must carry status out of starting block, where many believe that CBC Newsworld and CTV Newsnet should not be must carry either. But when they didn't get it, the media establishment cheered it as a major defeat for "Fox News North".
I have always said, "if you build it, they will come". Launch a product, and build a subscriber base. You don't need to force the whole country to buy it on its first day of operation. The best asset that Sun TV has signed, the Boss of Talk, Charles Adler; a man I would pay to watch.
