CJSA Toronto Starts Foreign Language Service on HD2
Toronto - Jan 14, 2014 - In the presence of a member of the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunication Commission and an executive of iBiquity Digital, Canadian Multicultural Radio (CMR) launched Canada's first HD Radio programming in Tamil at 4 p.m. on Jan. 14, 2014, during the Thai Pongal festival. This service is now live on 101.3 FM CJSA's HD2.
Commissioner Raj Shoan, a full-time member of the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunication Commission, designated for the Ontario region, officially launched the programming on-air. He said, "CMR's experiment with HD Radio will enable the CRTC to assess to what extent Canadians may gravitate towards this new technology and whether regulation should be developed to facilitate its possible adoption by other radio broadcasters."
The CRTC approved CMR's request to experiment with HD Radio to its fullest capability in the summer of 2013. In addition to the 24-hour Tamil service launch on HD2, the station intends to launch Hindi and Urdu services combined on HD3 and Punjabi service on HD4. The station has also offered to help the CRTC with its findings on how HD Radio technology unfolds in its service market.
