Over time DTV equipment prices will come down somewhat. If they dont want to provide Canada wide coverage then they should have their funding cut appropriately. Remember CBC is mandated, unlike the private broadcasters. If the private sector broadcasters can convert and flourish on one source of income, that being advertising, then the CBC which has 2 sources of income can do it. This is all a sham, dont believe what the CBC is feeding you. The CBC lives a sub-culture of entitlement.
