You can also get Dish in Canada for free. They will likely have a similar service for HD soon, and there are new FTA boxes coming that have HDTV.

I don't really know what you mean. FTA is just a term to descripe the generic equipment used for FTA programs. FTA systems are also used to recieved "pay" signals as well. Yes there are severl HD channels available for "free"

Yes, it is a personal decision. I have both Dish and Bell on my FTA. I also use VOIP, so my bills are pretty low for utilities!Octavius wrote: ↑Jul 15th, 2007 9:07 pmEven if you're paying for it...I *believe* it is illegal to have Direct TV here in Canada since it doesn't comply with the CRTC.
Again, I'm not 100% sure on this...but if you wish to be a law abiding citizen I'd look more into this if I were you.
Then again, it's not like a cop is going to see a Direct TV dish on the side of your house and knock and your door and arrest you...they have better things to worry about.

I know I can buy in the states and it'll work here but I'd rather have a Canadian service that works down south.
We spend winters in southern California and live summers in southern Ontario.
