Canada's federal broadcasting regulator is cracking the whip on three Toronto-based adult TV channels for failing to include enough Canadian content in their programming.
The Canadian Radio-television and Communications Commission announced three porn channels – AOV Adult Movie Channel, AOV XXX Action Clips and AOV Maleflixxx – were suspected of being in violation of their programming requirements.
The issue came up when parent company Channel Zero attempted to renew their broadcasting licences.
The censure notes that the channels "may have failed to comply with its conditions of licence by 1) providing less than 35% Canadian programming over the broadcast year and during the evening broadcast period and 2) providing less than 90% closed captioning for English-language programs over the broadcast day."
