Quebecor ordered to return TVA Sports access for Bell TV customers

Monday 15 April 2019 | 09:56 CET | News
An injunction from the Quebec Superior Court has ordered Quebecor to bring back access to TVA Sports for Bell TV customers. Bell announced the news and said it welcomed the decision. The company said Quebecor cut off service just as the NHL Playoffs began in the night of 10 April. Quebecor had said it would withdraw access to the channel on the evening of 11 April after mediation by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) failed to settle a carriage dispute. Bell had asked the CRTC to arbitrate.
