While visiting Vancouver, I'm noticing that Shaw will insert different commercials on KVOS cable 30 from that of KVOS ch. 12.1 ota. when there is no Canadian station showing the same program at the same time. Why is that? I thought simsub occurred only when a Canadian station carries the same program as an American station at the same time. Does Shaw get part of the revenue from the inserted commercials? If yes, then technically couldn't they do that with other U.S. stations at all times even though there is no Canadian station carrying the same program at the same time?
