Canada in about 6 months behind US in getting new TV models. The only tvs in Canada with built in ASTC and QAM tuners are the new Sony and Hitachi LCD rear projection TVs ( both about $5000).Cheaper CRT based big screen HDTV's will hopefully be in Canada by April. But the Cable tuner (QAM) may not be able to get cable unencrypted HD signals ever with cable card(Rogers claims they will have cards by April but no pricing info) I'm trying to get a straight answer on if the built in Cable tuner will cover the 200-300 channel range where Rogers puts all the HD signals but can't get a straight answer from anyone.
MY big screen broke recently and i'm waiting for the new sets to get up here....but it could be a long wait.
