    LyngSat says that, among other unexciting channels, the Knowledge Network is available FTA from Anik F1. (If I read the chart right.) Clicking on the page for that channel's site, it looks a bit interesting, almost like PBS for Canadians. Anyone know whether it's really available FTA?

    An aside, maybe I need to stop getting excited about LyngSat headlines. A few days ago, I got excited when I saw the Montreal CBC affiliates were available FTA ... until I noticed that they're available FTA in Europe! :(

    There are some great 4:2:2 feeds from CBC on AnikF1, quite a few olympic related.

    The Knowledge network is Digicipher II (not DVB) so a DVB receiver would not get it.

    A previously subscribed to Star Choice receiver would :)

    Unexciting channels? CTV is a FTA channel, and a commercial network in the Great White North.

    What other free channels would a previously subscribed to Star Choice receiver get?

    According to LyngSat:

    CPAC - Canada's Political Channel
    TSC - The Shopping Channel
    Canal Auto Desenvolvimento
    Canal Estratégia
    Canal Gestão
    Ontario Legislature
    Viewer's Choice Preview
    Star Choice Info Channel
    Access TV
    CKUA Alberta (radio)
    BC Legislative Assembly
    VoicePrint (reading service)

    Now that's what I call unexciting! :)

    Wow, I think a previously subscribed dish receiver would actually be better....
