    ...Hmm, I don't see a big problem here. I get all my locals via StarChoice(CBC, CTV Global)......

    + I can watch multiple CBC's, CTV's, +Globals from across Canada

    ......+ I can watch two sets of US Nets...NBC, CBS, ABC, PBS +FOX(East +West)...

    ......+ several Canadian "superstations"....NTV+ CH (East+West) + NewVR+ NewRO + NewPL+ CHEX + A Channel+ CITYTV(East + West)+ CMFT....

    ....+ US "superstations" KTLA, WGN, WTBS, WPIX + WSBK

    My locals can instruct StarChoice to send a signal to compel my receiver to substitute their signal over the signal of US nets (NBC, ABC, CBS + FOX) for programs that they are airing at the same time...."sim-subbing"....This keeps them happy.

    .......This gives me an amazing selection of local news shows...+ there is a very easy "work around" to avoid most local sim-subs.:p

    Maybe the folks at the FCC should look at the Canadian model for Satellite Programming. Yes we can get locals from all across the country and 2 sets of U.S. Network Feeds and this hasn't killed any local stations here, and our locals are much smaller with tiny budgets in comparison. The NAB in the U.S. is friggin paranoid.

    I am sorry if my remarks were construed as stating that the law is "fair". I do not necessarily agree with it. I just reported on what I thought the law said.I wish i could buy distant nets too.
