In the 80's we had one of the huge satellite dishes, not the digital that are used now. This dish and the receiver would pick up the CBC Network including all local programming, It was very educational. Satellite programming has changed so much from that time. Now we have a tiny little dish from DirecTv, that works completely different, and on days when it rains, tiny little raindrops actually block out our coverage completely, sometimes for hours.

This one brings back memories. For years there were only two networks in Canada: CBC and CTV. Global started as an independent channel in Toronto. In Global's early days (in the daysbefore movie rentals) it gained a lot of viewers with its great late-show movies.

By the way, I live in the Channel 6 viewing area.
