CBC gets reprieve on transition to digital signal - The Globe and Mail

CBC gets reprieve on transition to digital signal - The Globe and Mail: "Thousands of Canadians who were about to lose their over-the-air CBC television signal have got a reprieve: The federal broadcast regulator announced Tuesday that it will allow the public broadcaster to keep its old analog transmitters up and running for another year.

Canada moves to digital transmission of television signals Aug. 31 and, on that date, the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission requires all broadcasters to shut off analog signals in 28 mandatory markets covering all major cities. The CBC, however, says it cannot afford to replace all its transmitters with the new technology, leaving places from Saint John to London, Ont., and Saskatoon without an over-the-air signal."
