    Description:

    The nature of the competitive process that causes a reallocation of market shares within an industry contributes to aggregate productivity growth. This paper extends our understanding of industry differences in the competitive process by examining firm turnover and productivity growth in various services industries in Canada and situating them relative to retailing and manufacturing, two industries which have been the focus of these studies in the past. Seven industries in the services sector, namely wholesale trade, transportation and warehousing, air transportation, truck transportation, broadcasting and telecommunications, business services and financial services, are examined.

    Just as the cable industry was poised to realize the full extent of investments made in its networks by offering local telephony in a number of Canadian markets, it seems to have put an end to the erosion of its traditional customer base. This may be a sign that the industry is reaping the benefits of a customer loyalty strategy founded on product and technological innovation.

    Description:

    From the early 1950s to the mid-1990s, cable companies were the only businesses offering multi-channel video services, and these services represented much of their revenues. The penetration of cable services grew steadily over the period and peaked in the early 1990s. The introduction of competition from wireless operators has given new life to the industry and its clientele has expanded by more than 20% from 1997 to 2002. Wireless operator companies, which had virtually no customers in 1997, have captured a substantial share of the multi-channel video market. Cable operators have diversified and now play a major role in the Internet access market. Digital technology is gradually displacing analogue technologies.

    Description:

    Technological advances and changes in the regulatory environment lead to convergence between the telecommunications, broadcasting and computer services sectors. The Information Highway will allow people to search for employment, pay their bills, book their travel arrangements, purchase goods and services, consult civil service advisors, use interactive educational and entertainment services and much more from their home. The Information Highway Advisory Council report recommends universal access at affordable prices as a policy objective, so that every Canadian, and not just a privileged few, may enjoy the benefits.

    Telephone and cable networks are expected to be the backbone of the Information Highway infrastructure. However, households need to have terminals, such as computers and modems, which will be connected to the networks. The paper analyzes the characteristics of those Canadian households that have already made the decision to purchase and use these terminal devices. Telephone, cable, computer and modem penetration rates are examined with respect to several economic and socio-demographic variables, such as income, education, employment status, age, family composition, provincial and residential location. This helps to identify the major determinants behind these choices which, in turn, can assist the design of policies towards universal access. Telephone penetration is nearly complete and cable penetration is quite high. Although computer and modem penetration rates are much lower they are increasing fast. There is a very strong relationship between household income and computer and modem penetration rates, and education exerts an influence independent of income. Age has had important effects that are independent of income, and its influence will continue to be felt as the age distribution of the population changes in the future. Household composition also plays a role, and households in urban areas are better equipped than households in rural areas.

    Description:

    This paper traces the path of television in Canada, from its introduction in 1952 to the present, examines its economics, discusses aspects of its content and takes a glimpse at its future.

    Television stations compete more than ever before for advertising dollars. This reflects the increase in the number of stations as well as the emergence of specialty channels. At the same time, technological advancements have expanded the use television to more than just program viewing, while the average viewing time is on the decline. There exists an asymmetry between revenue generation and program expenses. Specifically, the advertising revenues generated by news and information do not cover the cost of production, while drama generates more advertising revenues than is required for its production or purchase.

    The multi-channel universe promised by direct to home satellite broadcasting not only threatens even more the advertising revenue of television stations, but exerts further pressure on cable companies as well.
