Sun News Network asks to be included in basic cable package
Sun News Network is asking the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission to include its channel in basic cable packages.
The network says its losses have reached $17-million a year, and it needs to be broadcast in every home to recover.
"Mandatory carriage" would give the network 18 cents per month per subscriber, or about $18-million a year.
The CRTC is to hold a hearing to consider the request on April 23.
