I am interested in this over the air stuff too. My friend lives next to the CN tower and gets about 26 channels in full HD! I have about 15 skyscrapers blocking my view!

Anyway around this?

have you looked into shaw direct? they're in ontario.

Shaw Direct - 100% Digital Satellite Television

and as far as OTA goes, it's good quality, but you're limited to the channels you can get (i.e you'll never be able to get tsn or sportsnet or any other specialty channel)

Thanks, I forgot about shaw, they seem like a pretty good option, better than rogers anyway, as long as the quality is good

I bought a small $30 dollar OTA antenna last summer and was very surprised when I picked up 12 HD stations from Toronto here in Burlington. I went back to the shop and bought another $30 dollar antenna, pointed that one toward Buffalo and now I get 26 HD stations plus a bunch of analog stations. Goodbye Cogeco cable!

The HD picture quality is better than cable, we get all the major networks (but not cable specialty stations) and have found that most of what we miss is available in one form or another on the internet. It was great to watch the Olympics in HD for free! I connected a Mac and EyeTV Hybrid to the TV and now we have a complete HD home system and can record and playback, fast forward etc - much better than the cable box we rented.

The other huge advantage in severing the contract with Cogeco was discovering Teksavvy for internet and telephone services. Cogeco kept cutting us off the internet for going over our 60GB cap due to watching streaming TV and video so I had to look for a better solution. Teksavvy has either a 200GB cap or unlimited - both are priced way better than Cogeco was - and they have better customer service.

Although the internet connection is provided through Bell, they do all the fighting with Bell on your behalf. I am so impressed with Tecksavvy customer service that I have just signed up to be a reseller. (There are other small internet/phone providers but after reading DSLReports and getting a feel for the services available, I am very happy with the result of my experiment - especially the reduction in monthly bills!

(I just became a Teksavvy reseller yesterday - I have helped switch so many friends and neighbors in the past year, it made sense to become more involved.)
