Re: We are considering cancelling cable
You are thinking logically - not like a politician who has been careful briefed over a golf game by cable industry CEO.
In Canada the broadcasters are required to broadcast a certain amount of Canadian Content ( CANCON).
The regulators want to apply this to YouTube (!) and Netflix after complaints from cable companies.
Quite how they can force YouTube to show a certain proportion of Canadian Content to Canadians isn't clear - perhaps you will be forced to watch "Just for Laughs" before every cat video.
Netflix countered that they could make as much CANCON available as they wanted, but it was upto the viewer to decide if they wanted to watch it or not. The suggestion was that they would just have a blank white screen with the claim that it was a Canadian polar bear in the arctic with it's eyes closed.
