CACTUS : Les émetteurs bientôt désactivés de CBC/Radio-Canada devraient être offerts aux communautés

Ottawa, le 30 mai 2012 -- Dans la foulée des coupes imposées lors du dernier budget fédéral, CBC et Radio-Canada prévoient fermer plus de 600 émetteurs analogiques de télévision le 31 juillet prochain. Ainsi, les Canadiens vivant à l'extérieur des principales villes et capitales provinciales et territoriales perdront leur accès gratuit aux émissions du radiodiffuseur public par l'entremise des ondes hertziennes captées via des « oreilles de lapin » ou une antenne sur le toit.

CBC Transmitters Slated for July Shutdown Should Be Offered to Communities

Ottawa (May 25, 2012) In response to federal cuts, the CBC and Radio-Canada plan to switch off more than 600 analog transmitters on July 31, 2012. Canadians outside major cities and provincial and territorial capitals will lose free access to the CBC and Radio-Canada over the air using bunny ears or rooftop antennae. Ontario educational broadcaster TVO is shutting down more than 100 analog TV transmitters on July 31st as well. The affected communities need to act if they want to avoid losing this infrastructure.
