New porn channel to offer 50% Canadian content

Ok all you Canadian pornstars, grab your toque’s and Canadian beer because now you can be the next Canadian Porn Star on the new Canadian porn channel. And  If I were the director, I would make Canadian porn like how it used to be in the 70’s where everything was natural and real with dim lighting and cheesy love songs playing in the background.

Today’s porn, you got these girls who look like plastic barbies that over exaggerate and scream like if it actually hurts, while the guy looks bored to death because it’s his 20th time porking it in one day and he’s got little to squeeze out.

Canadians who may have become tired of being passed over as porn stars will have a new, home-grown outlet to showcase their erotic talents.

Federal regulators have granted Alberta-based Real Productions approval to launch a new digital pornography channel, which promises to serve up at least 50 per cent domestic content.

The Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) approved the Category 2 pay-television service on Wednesday, allowing Northern Peaks to become “Canada’s first adult video channel offering significant Canadian adult content.”

“I think as Canadians there is a bit of a tiredness in seeing all American stuff,” Shaun Donnelly, president of Real Productions, said during an interview on Friday.

“There is always that thrill for something that is local and you get the sense that these are people you can meet at the supermarket.” (joey note: cause that’s my goal in life, to meet slutty dirty people, gimme a break)

The CRTC only required 15 per cent Canadian content, but Northern Peaks agreed to provide “not less than 50 percent of the broadcast day and not less than 50 percent of the evening broadcast period to Canadian programming,” according to the licence.

“We want to be Canada’s adult channel and I think to do that, 15 per cent wouldn’t cut it,” Donnelly said.

Real Productions boasts the largest collection of Canadian adult-themed content in the country with more than 200 film titles and 75 television episodes in its library.

The regulator stipulated the licence will only be issued once Real Productions enters into an agreement with at least one licensed distributor.

Donnelly, who has also produced television programs for Playboy TV in the U.S. and Granada Television in Britain, said all five major Canadian cable and satellite carriers have expressed interest in hosting the channel and are reviewing the proposal.

“I’ve been in touch with the cable companies throughout the process and went ahead with it based on the interest we had,” he said

Northern Peaks will be restricted to certain types of programming including long-form documentaries, dramatic series, feature films, game shows, mini-series, sitcoms and made-for-TV movies.

The CRTC received no interventions in connection with the application, which was initially launched in October 2007.
