Many of our customers ask us to set them up with free OTA services. Toronto has access to many of the local HD channels but also the major US channels because of the proximity to the border.
The HD quality is often better than anything you will find from Bell or Rogers. The OTA service is uncompressed. The receiving antenna is going to determine your signal strength and clarity.
The Channel Master 7500 PVR is a full PVR when you add a hard drive.
