CRTC Approves Obituary Cable Channel

March 11, 2009 6:50 AM | News

CRTCAn entrepreneur in Quebec plans on taking the obituaries you read in the newspaper to a whole new medium — television.

“Je me souviens” — a niche network dedicated to broadcasting digital obituaries 24/7 — will be up and running by the summer.

The CRTC approved the channel recently to Gerald Dominique, the man behind the idea.

The French-language specialty channel won’t be all grim news though. It promises to deliver prayers, hospitalization notices and messages of thanks.

Dominique has big plans for the station, as he hopes to bring it across Canada one day under the title “Remember the Name.”
