you get around 4-6 TV channels here with an Ant (rabbit ears ect) global, CBC, and others. I think you get 2, 8, 24, 32, and 4x. (this are the ant channel numbers not cable numbers)

if you have an HD TV, and get an HD ant, you'll pick up 3 or 4 of those Channels in HD. HD over air is pretty dam clear.

but you need an Ant. having the disconnected cable plugged in won't help you with Shaw. I believe with delta cable the connected cable acts as the ant and you'll pick up the free channels still.
