Don't think this is true anymore. Bell has been SIM based for quite some
time, though they (and all the others) lock their phone to their network.

My next project after tying the loose ends for the antenna: a cheap PVR.


ATSC input, and HDMI output. Bring your own USB drive and record on it.

It is $70 at BestBuy, $60 at FactoryDirect, and $50 on Amazon.
So perhaps the first two will price match.

The other thing I will want is closed captioning and/or descriptive video.

The Over The Air channels I mentioned in my post yesterday all have closed
captioning working well.

Did not see an option for descriptive video in my TV (though their is one
in Rogers Netbox).
