You and I are very far apart on this, so lets just agree to disagree.
Fair enough, but you're still wrong. :)

You're not exactly performing any sort of public service to current subscribers by coming here making the claims that you are, though. We're all adults with our own experiences with various Canadian (and American) BDUs and we're grown ups who are big enough to figure things out for ourselves. You already voted with your wallet. What more do you want?

Bigoranget is interested in all Canadian television providers and what they offer, no matter which one he happens to have at the time. Over many years, he has provided interesting and valuable information. You might note that he has contributed nearly 3000 posts. I, for one, always read his comments and appreciate that he frequents this forum.

So am I, albeit there is already an EST/EDT CTV HD affiliate through CFTO. You'd only need CBOT for HD news.

The rest of the list looks decent, though. I have to wonder if Shaw is going to launch an HD version of Action sooner rather than later now that they have the capacity to distribute for SBS customers. Going to be interesting to see the channel numbers and what happens tomorrow when all of this turns on.

So a few questions are to be determined tomorrow in regards to channel allocation on the old transponders:
Which channels that you get today, but will not be available unless you upgrade your LNB? (i.e will Centre Ice move?)
Are any channels available tomorrow south of the 49th, that are not available today? (Bonus channels for vacationers).
