Subject: Global Edmonton DTV OTA?

When will Global Edmonton start OTA HD transmission? Global Calgary says

they're starting OTA HD transmission in May.
Just asking -- CTV is official broadcaster of Vancouver 2010 Olympics. Do you think they're going digital in all major citys until that game?

There's NO digital OTA TV in Edmonton. One digital TV(CTV) in Calgary. You should see from Post #1. Canada is turning digital very slow. Toronto is the only city that all broadcasters (except TVO) transmit in digital.

Er... you can read this thread over. But if you want the answer - in short: spring 2009 or 2010 or as late as 2011. Global Edmonton has applied to transmit digital and it is expected to start in spring 2009.(as they said)

In short, early as 2009, and late as before digital-to-analogue change.
Sorry, but no many info. Global Edmonton is expecting digital transmission in spring 2009(they applied for digital transmission and they're transmitting actually to simsub[simsubbing rules for HD channels are only for those areas that have digital ota transmitter].)

Yes that's correct. Hopefully you are in a location where it and the antenna farm SE of Edmonton are along the same bearing...

Edmonton: indoor antenna

Hey guys, im new here, awesome site! I didnt even know I could get free over the air HD in Edmonton. What antenna would be the best for indoor? and would I be getting CTVHD, GlobalHD, CBCHD? I looked at the guide but it kinda confuses me.

Did you only looked at post #1? HD OTA is NOT available in Edmonton. Global Edmonton will be available on Spring 2009 as they said.

Above is for 10pmstalker.

Any idea WHEN Global Edmonton will broadcast in digital? Also, how long did CFCN take to being approved and broadcasting in digital?
