Shaping the future of broadcasting policy in Canada and advocating on behalf of TELUS’ innovative and customer-centric television distribution services.


TELUS holds a unique position in the Canadian communications industry as a large network access provider (with both significant wireline and wireless infrastructure) which does not own any commercial programming services (“TV channels”). Unlike its main competitors, TELUS is not “vertically integrated” and instead is a pure-play distributor focused on providing the best viewing experience to customers through innovation and offering the best content from around the world.
