Hello All
Visited this site back when they were announcing the transfer from analog to digital here in Saskatoon, and when CBC said they weren't going to include Saskatoon.

I still have just OTA (I'm cherry picking from legal online sites, iTunes and DVDs) and I use zap2it.com as my TV guide, set to show me all broadcast stations (although some are too far out of the area and I don't know why they list them).
Lately I've noticed CBC and Radio Canada listed again, both as channel 13 on the zap2it.com OTA grid. Global is listed as 4 on that same grid and CTV as 8 and I get the digital signal on those channel numbers.
Does this mean CBC has changed their minds again? Did they quietly flipflop on their decision? Did someone jerry rig a digital transmitter? If not, why is CBC and CTV still listed on the Antenna Broadcast grid, with new numbers?

zap2it is not always accurate. For example: in the Detroit/Windsor area the list CBEFT, which no longer exists. Other stations are listed under the wrong channel

Zap2it is somewhat notorious for being slow to update their lineups. If nobody reports lineup changes (usually broadcasters or users,) the lineup often won't get updated. I believe there is a link on the Zap2it site to report inaccuracies. It's also possible to customize the lineup to see only the channels required.
