After some more Emmy chat regarding how Netflix, Amazon and Yahoo have changed the face of this year’s nominations we closed out with the NFL’s plan to force the CRTC to let CTV air their own ads during the Super Bowl, and a senate report offering some recommendations on how the CBC should operate in the future.
