Does anyone no anything about the Canadian experimental HDTV station in Ontario. I was told that the Japanese are giving the station a lot of support. What type of programming? When do they expect to go operational?

They have had a little HDTV content. When I say little, maybe I should say very little.

See www.cdtv.ca (http://www.cdtv.ca)

On Rogers HDTV, there is a channel set aside for that. There was a some broadcast loops that were shown, but not for very long.

It's typical of the average Canadian broadcast effort - half assed waste of money

Ain't that the truth!

The CDTV web site is pretty much a disgrace. The 'Letter from the President' is from Jan 2001 and the last Newsletter is from March 2001.

I sure hope they've been doing things behind the scenes.
