Thanks for all the replies. Sorry to temporarily abandon the thread.
I am in rural SW Ontario, and tried OTA but could only get a few decent channels. When Hay Communications started running fibre we jumped on for internet. It is SO fast and the price is right. They initially did not offer a skinny cable package but do now, so we have that bundled in as well. It’s fine for us, CBC, ctv, city, global, tvo plus some extra’s for $20 a month. A stb is $5 a month. We also use netflix.
In my pro audio business a wired connection is always preferred over a wireless connection for stability, but it seems it may be worth it to try the wireless hdmi. Will do some due diligence.
