Mobile TV in Canada won't be regulated

Canada's mobile operators got some good news from Canadian regulators. Canada's Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) ruled that mobile TV services that offer television programming through wireless handsets are exempt from regulation. Broadcasters had cried foul over mobile TV services, arguing that operators had to pay the same television taxes and fall under the same regulations they did. But the CRTC said mobile TV services full under the commission's new Media Exemption Order, which allows services delivered or accessed via the Internet to be exempt from traditional broadcasting regulations.
