    Stealing is a weasel word. File Sharing is more accurate as there's no physical medium involved. If they can't make money off of showing me Arctic Air, I'll go somewhere else. They can do business as usual and make money off of that, I'm sure they're not hurting for viewers. If they won't sell it to Fresno or where ever, say so and leave those of us who want to break out of the TV rat race alone. Lead, follow, or get out of the way.

    As Satelliteracer has stated several times no service provider has it all. Which means one must pick a provider that can best meet their needs and wants. Obviously your not happy with your provider. Your choice is simple. Get out of the "TV rat race" and be left alone or relocate to the host country as I previously suggested so you can get the channels you desire. :rolleyes:

    Just because you don't think it is stealing doesn't make it stealing.

    My neighbor is just one person but he has 2 cars. He doesn't need 2 cars, so why can't I drive the one he isn't using right now? I'm not taking anything from him that he could be using...

    I see far too many people trying to defend and rationalize their stealing... "I would buy it if it didn't cost so much"... So, ok... anything you can't afford is ok to steal? I guess I'm entitled to the gold in Fort Knox. I mean, If I could afford it, I would buy it... so stealing it is ok?

    "I want to buy it but they don't want to sell it"... Ok, I like my neighbor's TV... but he doesn't want to sell it... so it is ok if I steal it, right?

    "Software and digital music/movies aren't tangible property. If I steal it, it doesn't stop them from selling it to others." Yeah, so something that you can steal without people knowing and that doesn't take away from sales is ok?

    The rules are pretty simple... you are only entitled to buy something that is for sale, available to you, and something you can afford. You aren't entitled to steal things you can't afford, aren't available in your area, or aren't for sale.

    IT should be pretty simple to follow those rules... so no more rationalizing of stealing, please.

    Now I am feeling guilty about reading that newspaper someone left at Mcdonalds this morning! But back to the Canadian content subject! For those homesick there is some non-Geoblocked streaming of local CA shows on the internet. Roku has the Canadian Film Board Channel and some Canadian Public Broadcasting channels. I would expect a lot more coming. Obviously the sat and cable companies are pushing their bandwith now and the future of niche channels is in legal streaming.

    I think I've said this before on another thread, but I've often wondered why since the BBCA is viable financially there isn't a "CBCA" (or maybe "CBUS"?) that pays for Canadian shows.

    KFRE The 59 will show The LA Complex from Much on April 24th. US channels may not be so bad after all.

    Get this link before it gets taken down cause it's not on DN or DirecTV, Illegal.

    Yup, series finale coming up. Hopefully there will be a complete series Blu-ray. I would get that in an instant.

    I don't think CBC puts its shows on BluRay, could be wrong though.

    Redacted bacause Fresno is showing these shows. Ricki will be on FOX at 10am. Katie on ABC at 3:00.

    I just wanna see if Ricki Lake's show is just like the old one she did.

    Arsenio coming back next year, can't wait.

    I can't believe it could be that much different -- there aren't a lot of format variations between different daytime talk shows.

    In the spring of 1996, I was a college intern at the Chicago TV station that carried her old show. Because they carried the show, they got a bunch of passes to give away for a sneak preview of the movie "Mrs. Winterbourne," in which she starred -- they offered them via postcard.

    So I remember a day when I had the task of mailing out the movie passes to people who had sent in postcards. One person obviously really liked Ricki Lake, since he sent in dozens of postcards. It wasn't you, was it? :D
