Greetings fine folks of Erie, I have a question from down below in the Steel City...
My wife and I may be moving up your way next year, and we've always been kind of curious about Canadian television. We're not cable or satellite subscribers, strictly OTA here, and we'd likely continue that practice wherever we move. I've noticed while searching this thread that occasionally Canadian stations are mentioned.
How hard/easy is it to tune in Canadian channels from Erie, particularly when living relatively close to the lake? Does doing so require a highly directional and/or roof mounted antenna? Which stations can one typically watch? Do any of them include Canadian news programs?
Finally, and this might be moot because I know some Canadian stations have already started digital broadcasting, but...of the channels you manage to receive, do you expect any of them will become any more/less difficult to tune in after Canada completes their switchover next year?
Thanks much for your feedback, anecdotes, and advice.
