Super bowl 2013 – US Commercials

So are Shaw direct customers(outside the gta) going to enjoy US Commercials again this year?

We should. SD doesn't simsub CTV-HD outside of Toronto unlike Global-HD and City-HD.

I'm in Vaughan. So i get simsubbed by the Canadian commercials for the Superbowl. I'm south of Major Mack. My friend who is north of major mack (literally on the other side of the street) does not get simsubbed on CBS HD (ch. 322 adv). Anyone in the GTA experiencing the same thing? He told me the same thing last year. odd.

Best way to deal with simsubbing of this game... mute the commercials and watch the real ones from here;

They appear a few minutes after they are aired live.

Also put up an antenna. That's we did. We use it to outsmart simsubbing.

I noticed that the commercials on CTV were not the same as the U.S. commercials. I was able to watch the American CBS channel on my 10 ft C band satellite dish using legal free to air. The U.S. commercials are always so much better.

They were very disappointing this year to say the least compared to years past. On th eflip side, Beyonce was great!

Thanks everyone. I was actually just wondering if anyone watching on Shaw Direct in the Toronto area was able to see the US commercials like my friend was (see above). I actually don't care for football (didn't watch the game) or much for the commercials, just curious as to why my friend wasn't simsubbed.
