You guys are so stubborn. This is Canada. We do things differently here.
While you watch the Canadian stations, I want you to keep muttering the following prayer:
“Lord, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.”
You can physically change the channel, but with simsubs you basically end up in the same place. You have the wisdom to know the difference between the Canadian feed and the US feed, but resistance is futile.
Don't you just love hearing: "Canada is watching CTV." I know I did. I used to get chills down my spine each time I heard that. I envy you guys.
You don't need the US stations! They will just pollute your mind!
If a show isn't sim-subbed, it's probably not worth watching. If you think it is, then wait for the DVD/Blu-ray. So what if the US version of Dancing with the Stars isn't on DVD ... you can still probably find a few clips online somewhere.
Send Tony Clement a tweet and let him know that you're mad as hell and don't want to be ignored! He'll tell you what he had for dinner and then turn on his DirectTV unit and watch those evil US stations to see what propaganda they are spewing.
You have no business watching US shows on US channels. The CRTC isn't in business to please you. It's in business to make the tough decisions that you are not capable of making. Once the two channels are combined into 1 sim-subbed Canadian station, then and only then, can you rest easy and not worry about making the wrong choice.
Global has just announced that The Simpsons will now be known as The Simsubs here in Canada.
