- Usage-based billing and low bandwidth caps that discourage use of OTT as a replacement for BDU service
- Vertical integration, and the common incentive BDU/broadcasters have to purchase exclusive multiplatform rights, to preserve the BDU franchise
- UBB that makes Canadian internet services among the most expensive in the world - and coincidentally forces Netflix to degrade its quality to Canadians to fit within these artificial caps and favours the delivery of higher definition movies purchased from from the ISPs rather than Netflix
- An astonishing regulatory tolerance of vertical integration with respect to all major aspects of the content, communication, and media sectors (including cross ownership in potentially competitive sectors within those categories, such as ISPs v. BDUs, print news media v. online, etc.)
