Saint John gets to keep its CBC TV

Good news for those Saint Johners who don’t subscribe to cable (me included). CBC TV is being allowed to continue to use its analog transmitter serving the Saint John region. (News story here.)

The alternative would have been the loss of the over-the-air (OTA) CBC TV signal in this area, as the CBC’s planned digital television transmitter would have served only Fredericton. Continuation of the analog signal means that OTA viewers in Saint John will still be able to receive the CBC television their tax dollars pay for.
