A quick note/reply, since I'm very interested in the topic of Canadian TV.
There's only one digital station out of London right now, the Sun TV repeater (?). I don't think that makes it across the lake easily.
Everything else is analog right now, and I don't remember if London is one of the markets where digital conversion will be mandatory.
From a parking lot on Lake Erie near Geneva-on-the-Lake, OH, I've gotten (with a modest magmount whip antenna on my car roof) the CBC and CityTV (and I believe TV Ontario and CHCH/11's repeater) stations out of the London area. I've gotten that CityTV station (31/Woodstock ON) on the same setup driving in the Erie area, so with a decent antenna and lake facing, you should have no difficulty.
We'll see how that'll change whenever these stations go digital.
CBC, CityTV and CHCH all have news programming, IIRC, though only CBC would probably have a London-specific cast. So does A London (CFPL/10 analog), but I've only gotten that once due to my proximity, even on the lake, to WOIO/19's digital RF 10 signal in Cleveland.
