O.T.A. (Over the Air) Channels for Toronto GTA Area

If you are paying for cable and compare basic cable with Over the Air (OTA), you got to wonder what you are doing? Living in the GTA (Toronto, Mississauga, Brampton, Scarborough, Markham, Richmond Hill, Pickering, Ajax, Whitby, Oshawa, Vaughan, Etobicoke, Oakville , Milton and surrounding areas) and paying for Rogers or Cogeco Cable TV with its inferior picture quality compared to the new era of Digital TV (DTV) makes absolutely no sense. Below is a list of TV stations you can receive with off air OTA broadcasts using superior products like the channel master 4228 HD, 4221 HD, HDTV OTA antennas. Some of the channels like City TV, Global, CBC, Fox 29, NBC, ABC, WIVB (Buffalo 4) and many others in dazzling HD. The HD you receive from even satellite TV is not as good as OTA DTV. This is because the compression that is used in Satellite TV loses definition unlike OTA HD. Even the standard definition channels that come over the air are far superior then cable could ever deliver to your TV. Your TV maybe only HD ready and after paying so much for your new HD TV you don't have to subscribe to expensive services to see the most amazing HDTV. Below is the list of channels that are available within Toronto and the GTA using an Over the air Antenna. This is a general list of the GTA an OTA list of what is available you can also go to zap2it link here type in your postal code and choose the last link local broadcast (antenna). These listings changes from time to time  and below is listed the best you can get as OTA is very area dependent. For most of the GTA Toronto, Buffalo and Hamilton towers are pretty easily obtainable using either a channel master 4221HD or a channel Master 4228HD.

Digital Channels (DTV is Standard definition and HDTV) Note Syracuse and Rochester are very difficult to get in toronto an are not listed here, they are only repeats of channels like ABC, NBC, CW, FOX, PBS Rochester is a great alternative to people east of Durham region!
