Going to try the online/OTA route. My parents watch a lot of Punjabi channels so looking into some online services that may provide them (perhaps YuppTV). Might try Netflix too to see if its worthwhile and attempt to set up OTA over the next month.
Looking forward to be Rogers-free though! Internet is with Teksavvy and home phone with freephoneline. Cable TV was the only thing left and it'll soon be over! Didn't really feel like trying out Bell, it seems to be almost as expensive and I'd rather support the alternatives.
