So that's why CBC comes in so clear. I have been without cable for........ I guess 17 years. I've always used the ol' rabbit ears to get signal. I noticed CBC comes in great these days. I have HDTV wide screen TV, just no cable.

of course, it'll work untill HD is dead, at which point it'll be something better. over the air TV has been around since TV was made, and won't be going anywhere.

once they finaly drop analog TV transmission more HD channels will hopefully come out.

So you're the one? I heard the rumor for a while that there was someone in lower mainland without cable and come to find out he's a regular on RS, what are the odds?

I've actually been using this as my only TV source since I cancelled my Bell sub and my FTA went down after...lol.

I get Global(HD), CBC(HD), CTV(HD), A, Omni which is pretty much 80% of what I watch anyways. Missing Sportsnet and TSN but I just stream those Canucks games off the net now. Only thing that sucks is day time TV when only fucking Oprah, Dr Phil, and Maury are on at the same time.

cable is a waste of money. I won't have a phone line in my next place either. I bet there is lots of people without cable in the LMD.

I get a buncha OTA stations with my 25 footer. I think like 5-6? And that's on top of westwood plateau in coquitlam.

That being said, cable is just easy for me... just turn on, and it's there. I also have FTA setup, but it gets annoying after a while with updates and so forth

It's only a waste of money if you don't watch it, I happen to enjoy watching TV in the evening. I do realize lots of people don't have cable I was obviously kidding hence the smiley face.

Very possible but they've been saying this for years. It won't be dead either, at worst it might experience a hiccup but they'll find away to get it going again they always do.

Nope it's dead for most people because Nagra 3 encryption has not been cracked yet and it's been out for a few years in Europe. Look at Direct TV it's been down for years. The only thing that works now is Nfusion and it works because the company has a subscription to Bell and Dish and they provide to they customers. There boxes also have to be connect to the internet so it can be updated.

You really believe they won't find a work around Nagra 3? I'd bet my house they do within a year. They said the same thing with Nag 2 game out, oh noes it's the end of FTA. Lots of money at stake they'll find a work around.

nag 3 has already been out for almost a year now in N/A. bell switched months ago.

DTV has been down for years with no cracks. and DTV is way better then dish / bell so you can bet people were trying.

the past cracks have been done by employee leakage. They have learned their lesson, I bet there is only 2 people that know how DTV and nag 3 work... which means it'll never get out.

From what the people are saying on the FTA forums, they are waiting for the DN to fully switch to N3 before they start any work on new files for N3. That being said, it could be down for awhile to forever. No one knows forsure except the coders working on the files to see if it's possible. Only time will tell.

I can only get CBC HD (coming in at around 20%) but i'm out in Port Moody on the hillside blocked by buildings. I've made every homemade antenna out there and none of them worked except for a $3 rabbit ear antenna from the dollar store, which only works for some odd reason in one spot in the entre house.

You want to bet a house? They still haven't cracked it in Europe and it's been out for over 2 years. Look at Direct TV it's been gone for years.

The difference with direct TV is with Bell & Dishnet being wide open for long there was no need to crack direct TV again, why waste the resources. Bell is down and soon DN will be down, once theres nothing full efforts will be given to make FTA available again. I'd seriously be shocked if there isn't a fix within months after DN finally does the full switch to Nag 3.

Really it doesn't matter to me my FTA dish has paid for itself a bunch of times over and anything I can get from it is a bonus. I just watched another UFC on it tonight. I don't even remember the last time it was down, I'll enjoy it well I can. Once it goes down I'll either wait for a fix, it might be as simple as a download or maybe I'll need a new reciever either way I'll get it.
