My word "broadcast" was in quotation marks for a reason - so that it was possible to distinguish between a "channel" that "broadcasts" and a BDU (that rebroadcasts?).

There are some "broadcasters", like specialty channels (non-OTA) that don't actually broadcast because they don't "transmit" in the traditional sense, rather they can send their signals via fibre for example directly to the BDU .

So, my differentiation was a means to distinguish the "broadcasters" from the BDUs, although I'm sure you knew that.

The water is even muddier than that though since some BDUs, like Rogers, Bell, Shaw own "broadcasters" like Global, CTV, etc.

Your use of the term Q.E.D. indicates that you wish to be known for having superior logic. You may feel that way if you wish.
