BCE has received clearance for its 3.38-billion dollar acquisition of Astral Media
The Competition Bureau says Bell must divest itself of Astral’s ownership interests in several pay and specialty television channels.
The deal still requires approval from the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission.
The CRTC killed the original deal last October, saying it wasn’t in the best interests of Canadians.
