That is what local over-the-air television station owners are telling the cable companies in Canada. Sounds silly doesn't it. Well, unfortunately that is exactly what is happening in hearings before the CRTC. Alan has been blogging up a storm about this at Silly Little Country.
Imagine what the viewership of local television would be if cable companies did NOT carry the local over-the-air stations. And as Alan and I agreed yesterday, we might even be willing to pay the cable companies NOT to carry some of the drek that passes as local over-the-air television.
