What is MTS going to be doing to implement the CRTC ruling for warnings that comes into effect on March 31? 

Will it be a crawl at the bottom of the screen or will it be a full screen warning that will lock up the receiver until the warning is over?

Hi Clifford,

It will be the whole screen not just a scroll.  There will be some audio associated with it as well and it will be on the screen for about 30 seconds or however long the audio message is.  You will be able to hit exit to go back to TV.

We are still in final testing so some details are subject to change.
