Sorry to be the lone ***** in this thread, but I see the broadcasters' point of view.  You wouldn't expect to receive a newspaper free.  Remember Canadian satlellite and cable poroviders are forced to pay the U.S. local stations a retransmission fee, something Canadian broadcasters aren't.

Look at the bright side, you could pick up alot more U.S. channels.  If CIII-6 Ayr ceases terrestrial broadcasting, WBXZ-56 would be availbe to more southern Ontario viewers on RF17.  If CHCH ceases broadcasting on RF 15, you could pick up 3 new PBS channels on WPSU-3 Clearfield, PA.  [Link: wpsx.psu.edu]

    Also note that when the U.S. Class A stations are required to relocated to below the RF32 channel in 2018, some of their new frequencies (although LP) might be the same ones currenlty used for Canadian broadcasters.

    I will make a link to Trip Ericson's Rabbit Ears Repack Checker in the thread titled
"2015 US TV REVERSE AND FORWARD AUCTION".
