Good point. I don't think the CBC has (or will get) the money to replace all of these transmitters. I seem to remember reading that the CBC plans to shut down their remote transmitters as they die. When this happens, it will be interesting to see if there is a public outcry to have them replaced. This probably depends if an alternate technology (such as free to air or free DTH) takes its place. This extends beyond TV and includes radio as well.
