Cogeco's letter about end of OTA
"as Best Buy/Future Shop/The Source by CC/Audio Video 2001 are all refusing to carry them as of course they dont get any residual commissions like they would with Rogers or StarChoice"
It's somewhat infuriating that the chain stores constantly advertise that the only way to get HD is through Cable or Satellite. Cogeco even had the guts to send me a letter (I have internet through them, but not TV) stating that I was going to lose all the network channels I currently get through antenna due to the US changeover to digital, and that I should sign up with them for all my TV viewing needs. I wanted to (and still might) write them a letter back calling them out on their outright lies, and explain to them that I get every channel they listed not only in HD, but for FREE! The sad part is, 90% of people don't realize this and swallow whatever they are told by salesmen at these stores and the satellite/cable providers. It's false advertising in the purest sense.
