Yes, we have high definition television! Contrary to what you may have heard, a wide variety of free off-air digital HDTV programming is available in the Greater Toronto and Buffalo areas. All you need is an antenna and an ATSC receiver - and your television may already have one of those built in! On this page you’ll find a list of all current Canadian and American channels for the region, their status and power levels, plus a location map of all HDTV transmitters currently broadcasting in the Southern Ontario and Western New York areas.
(1080i/5.1) As this station is broadcasting on VHF channel 10, those of you with UHF-only antennas may find it difficult or impossible to receive, however I am having good success in Markham. Please see the section at the bottom of the page for CKVR's plans for 2 additional repeaters.
(720p/5.1) Thanks to its 1000kW power, WUTV is one of Buffalo's most reliable signals, even though their directional transmitter sends very little power to the North and can be difficult to receive too far out of region.
The Country Network
(480i/2.0) Country music videos from the 1980's to present. ZUUS reverts to its original name...
Since WBXZ does not have a true primary affiliation, its substations are listed below. Note that this is a "Low Power" station, so reception will be greatly limited outside of the Buffalo area. NOTE Nov/17: this listing is not current. Reports are there may be no subchannels currently?
(720p/5.1) Despite WKBW's power level and distance, their signal has been unexpectedly reliable for me personally - better than the higher powered WIVB or WGRZ. Heavy echo effect used to matrix local 2.0 audio to 5.1 surround can be distracting.
(1080i/5.1) Now broadcasting from channel 41. Global shows a wide range of high definition content, although I personally find their image a touch on the soft side compared to other stations and occasionally suffers from visible compression artifacts. Note to Global engineers: please turn off the volume compression!
(1080i/2.0) A surprisingly strong signal in the Toronto area, despite its relatively low power. Due to the number of subchannels and the 1080i resolution of its main channel, compression on HD shows is quite apparent.
(480i/2.0) WXXI-C, kids' educational.
(1.0) Can be difficult to receive as it is not properly configured.
