Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Inuit Broadcasting Corporation is a television broadcasting company based in Nunavut. Its programming is targeted at the Inuit population of Nunavut and almost all of its programs are broadcast in Inuktitut. Select programs are also broadcast in English. In contrast with traditional commercial television broadcasting companies, IBC shows centre around Inuit culture. The company has five production centres in various places in Nunavut, all staffed by Inuit. Television was first introduced to the north through CBC's frontier coverage package, which allowed the delivery of southern videotaped programming to twenty-one northern communities. There was no northern content: CBC's priority at that time was to extend its southern coverage area into the north, not to develop a northern-based service for northerners.show more
