Canada's TVGOS will be discontinued. I wasn't sure so I emailed CIVT in Vancouver, BC. Here is their reply:

Yes you are correct.
On April 14th we will no longer be inserting the ROVI TVGOS data stream in our OTA signal.

Hi CIVT techs;
As you probably are aware, ROVI Corp. is in the process of discontinuing OTA TVGOS in the United States and is requesting that USA broadcasters return the inserter equipment to them. ROVI has not been forthcoming about details of its plans to end users of TVGOS.
I live in Bellingham, WA and receive your OTA signal on Ch. 32.1. Has ROVI informed you that its Canadian TVGOS will be discontinued and the inserter equipment should be returned to them? Is there a date by which this will occur?
Thanks for any info.
