andCBET will also convert to Digital transmission come September 1 2011
As things stands, it looks as if all the Windsor locals are going through with the transition without delay.The CBET will always be 9.
Exactly! Whitehorse and Iqaluit were to be shut down. Now the CBC can keep them on air.Actually, their plan was to convert the Yellowknife transmitter only.
I understand this is scheduled to be decommissioned in December 2013, so the transmitters in non-mandatory markets don't have much of a lifespan anyway.We will continue to broadcast in analogue for as long as we can, but we cannot continue to do so forever. The useful life of CBC/Radio-Canada’s satellite distribution backbone for analogue transmission is approaching.
I expect CBC to carry on converting CFYK since it's an originating station. They're also converting their SRC station in Rimouski, which isn't a mandatory market either. Both are showing on their site: http://cbc.radio-canada.ca/dtvIsn't CFYK-TV Yellowknife an originating station? Perhaps CBC is too far down the road to turn back. We'll see I guess.
