Broadcasting and Telecommunications

Earnscliffe has a long history of providing public affairs services to major Canadian companies in telecommunications and broadcast. In telecommunications, we have worked on all aspects of the regulatory and policy environments for a number of the vertically integrated majors and wireless providers. The work has included policy submissions and advocacy, regulatory filings, spectrum allocation and mergers and acquisition activity. In broadcast, we have worked with a large number of firms including conventional broadcasters (public and private), specialty channels and their association, BDUs (cable and satellite) and satellite companies. The work has included regulatory submissions and license renewals, transponder allocation, the satellite gray market, and overall broadcast policy. In both sectors, we have provided government relations, strategic communications and public opinion research and worked closely with regulatory legal teams.
