TV64Niagara,

Do you not understand that broadcasters are not interested in expanding over-the-air coverage? Are you not aware that Corus is actually planning to consolidate transmitters in Ontario? There is a request in right now for approval to decommission CIII-DT-27 in Peterborough and instead carry Global Toronto as a sub-channel on CHEX-DTs sub channel. Same with the channel 2 transmitter in Bancroft. They are planning to shutter it and carry Global Toronto on a sub-channel of CKWS-DT. They are also planning to shutter the transmitter in Prescott and carry Global Kingston as a sub-channel on CIII-DT-6 in Ottawa. Doesn't sound like Corus is interested in expanding OTA coverage.

Also those transmitters are long decommissioned. They were shut down nearly 8 years ago. Some towers might be used for radio but I guarantee you all the antenna equipment is long gone plus all the ground facilities would have been analog anyways so there would be large expenditures to put in place digital equipment.
