On September 30, the CRTC approved the application by Hay River Community Service Society for a broadcasting licence to carry on an English-language television programming undertaking at Hay River, operating on channel 5 with a transmitter power of 10 watts, to broadcast locally-produced programming in non-encrypted mode. The licence would expire August 31, 1997. The applicant was the licensee of a community-funded radiocommunication distribution undertaking at Hay River which used low-power television transmitters to distribute non-encrypted television signals received via satellite. Issuance of the separate licence approved herein was necessary, since the programming to be broadcast on the proposed undertaking would be produced by the licensee. This programming would consist primarily of community announcements, would be without commercial advertising, and would be broadcast throughout the day using an alpha-numeric character generator. A weekly television bingo program sponsored by a local service club was also proposed.


CIHC-TV began broadcasting.
