    CIVQ-DT (Télé-Québec, Quebec City) is up and running OTA since summer 2010, UHF 25 (15.1).

    Télé-Québec has 12 stations province-wide (CIV*-TV) with offices and studios, but they are all retransmitters of the Montreal feed.

    Thanks for the info.

    I was not aware that the Quebec City station had launched its digital feed, I thought only the Montreal station have converted to digital?! Do you know if CIVQ-DT is available on cable or is it only OTA?!

    Well, Télé-Québec is just like TVO (CICA, CICE, CICO) and TFO (CHLF): One feed, many transmitters. The Télé-Québec HD feed is available on Vidéotron since June 16, 2008, so CIVQ-DT is technically available on Vidéotron, Cogeco (Qc), Rogers (Ont) and Bell TV... Try to word it however you want!

    Global's really trying to get all their digital transmitters in mandatory markets up and running before the deadline. As of today, CKMI-DT-2 Sherbrooke is now on the air.

    Very odd. CKMI-DT-2 Sherbrooke is on the air, it's the Montreal HD feed.
    But on cable, Vidéotron is still distributing the Global Toronto HD feed all over their network.

    Sounds like, for Shaw Media, simsubs have priority over having a local version with local news and local advertisements. Maybe TVViewer could explain this oddity to us?

    It takes time for Videotron to switch the signal over from Toronto to Montreal. This has absolutely nothing to do with Global.

    I'm not aware of the situation in Montreal, but technically, Global shouldn't be receiving simsubs at all. None of the Global Toronto transmitters emit a Grade B signal into Montreal.

    What I meant was, direct-to-BDU feed always came first. TVA is offering local version in Quebec and Sherbrooke without broadcasting OTA, V offered 5 local versions at some point while the Montreal digital transmitter was the only one operational, CTV offered CFCF and CJOH in december 2009 before launching CFCF-DT last january. At least cable had access to their local news on the HD feed. But Global is going the inverse way, launching a digital OTA transmitter before cable.

    As for simsubs, CKMI-DT Montreal's digital OTA transmitters is supposed to launch August 31st only, which is when simsubs will begin (Sherbrooke and Quebec City are free of simsubs). From their point of view, there's no point in offering a local HD version if they can't simsub. Which is why I stated that they prioritize simsubs over local.

    As a cable subscriber, I would have prefer watching Global Montreal HD with local news. Rigt now, I'm being forced to switch to Global Montreal when I see that the local news are Toronto-oriented on the HD channel. I thought Global Montreal was a money-losing station but they let Quebec residents watching Toronto ads on the HD feed. Odd strategy.
