CRTC launches phase II of Let’s Talk TV

crtc_logoThe CRTC are asking Canadians  to provide their input on the difficult choices to be made regarding their television system by filling out the Let’s Talk TV survey called Choicebook. You can complete the survey which takes 10 to 15 minutes here: Choicebook.

In October the CRTC invited Canadians to express their personal views on the future of their television system and more than 3,100 people participated in Phase one of “Let’s Talk TV” by submitting comments, joining the online discussion forum, responding to a telephone survey or attending one of the 25 Flash! Conferences held.

This is the second phase of Let’s Talk TV: A Conversation with Canadians.  Choicebook is an interactive questionnaire that contains a series of scenarios that reflect the realities Canadians face daily with respect to the television system. The CRTC used the comments submitted in Phase 1 to prepare Choicebook.  

While the purpose of Phase 1 was to collect more personal comments on what Canadians think of their television system, in Phase 2 Canadians are asked to consider the interests and needs of all Canadians. All Canadians—consumers, citizens and creators—are encouraged to present their views on the future of the Canadian television system. Whether or not they participated in Phase 1, all are encouraged to fill out Choicebook.

CRTC Chairman Jean-Pierre Blais will host a French-language Twitter Chat, February 19, 2014, from 10:00 – 10:45 a.m. EST, to answer questions about the Let’s Talk TV: A Conversation with Canadians initiative. Follow @CRTCfra and tweet questions with the hashtag #Parlonstele.

Mr. Blais will also host an English-language Twitter chat February 19, 2014, from 1:00 – 1:45 p.m. EST on the same topic. Follow @CRTCeng and tweet questions with the hashtag #TalkTV.
