OTTAWA, June 27 (Reuters) - Canada's broadcast regulator approved BCE Inc's modified bid for Astral Media Inc on Thursday, allowing the telecom company to acquire more of the content it distributes to television, computer and mobile screens.

The regulator said the approval comes with a number of conditions needed to uphold the public interest, but requires no further asset sales.
