The Canadian Domestic communication satellite ANIK has now been in broadcasting distribution service for three years and, during that period, there has been a large expansion from the initial utilization. The main thrust to date has been providing a program distribution service, but some experimentation has been done in what can be better termed program production, utilizing unique capabilities offered by satellite.
