Inside the battle for taxpayer-funded multicultural television

“Some consumers aren’t happy about the programming either, claiming that dependence on outside sources has left them with stale content. One viewer from Surrey, B.C., whom we’ll call Harpreet, says OMNI’s recent programming has turned his family off of the network. ‘There are no shows that interest me,’ he says, particularly of OMNI’s Punjabi programming. ‘Most of them have been taken from somewhere else—old shows from another network. Shows we have seen 10 years ago.’ That sentiment is echoed online, where little is posted about programming aside from interviewees promoting their appearances on the channel.”
