Default Cable/Satellite any other options?

Hello,

Just looking to see if anyone knows of any other option for tv other than Cable and Satellite. Not too happy with the pricing of both companies. Have tried net flix off the playstation and didnt really find the selection all that great.

Any advice would help

if you are in toronto you can do HDTV over the air. there are about 12 channels available. you can also checkout something like apple tv or a dlink boxee.

If you are looking for premium content, specialty channels and live sports, then your only option is cable and satellite services.

If you can live with about a dozen location stations and located in the GTA, then an antenna would be fine.

I think Ottawa has at least CBC and CTV in over the air HD by now.
