Not sure where you got the idea that Vision TV is not an entertainement channel.

In any case, all these channels are licensed broadcasting undertakings under the Broadcasting Act administered by the CRTC. CRTC also licenses OTA broadcasters, and although theoretically could issue licenses for any appropriate channel, it has expressed an interest in only licensing channels that don't already exist on cable or satellite.
