Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This page lists all of the local over-the-air television stations in the United States that are carried in Canada via cable/digital cable or satellite. This list also includes stations that were formerly carried, but have since been dropped.

The stations are organized by market, starting in the east (Maine) and ending in the west (California). Not all stations are available in all areas. A station that has the word "Bumped" next to it means that the station has been replaced by one of the stations from the CANCOM services, most likely either a Buffalo or Detroit local station in the east, or a Spokane or Seattle local station in the west.

Watertown, New York WWNY-TV CBS Yes Carried in Kingston-Brockville, where it is easily available over-the-air. Was formerly carried in Ottawa, dropped due to signal quality issues from distance. WNYF/Fox 7.2 digital subchannel OTA-only; Watertown digital subchannels are not on cable and not listed in Kingston local TV listings.
Watertown, New York WPBS-TV PBS Yes Carried in Ottawa and Pembroke (via WNPI-TV), Kingston directly (as WPBS-TV). Digital subchannels (Create/ThinkBright, PBS-HD) not carried by cable operators but readily available over-the-air in Kingston.
Watertown, New York WWTI-TV ABC Yes Carried in Kingston; CW Plus WWTI 50.2 digital subchannel available over-the-air only/not in local TV listings.
Watertown, New York WNYF-CA Fox No Analogue signal too weak to be detectable but a WWNY-DT2 digital subchannel provides solid A-grade coverage (OTA ATSC only) in Kingston, Ontario. Inexplicably, more-distant Syracuse and (later) Buffalo signals are distributed by Kingston's Cogeco cable instead of the more-local Watertown affiliate.
Syracuse, New York WSTM-TV NBC dropped Was carried in Kingston; OTA signal was fringe analogue reception, main channel only. Syracuse locals were dropped in favour of Buffalo NY after 2009's digital transition.[2]
Syracuse, New York WSYR-TV ABC dropped Was carried in Kingston; had been bumped to higher cable converter channels in favour of commonly-owned WWTI-TV, which now occupies the "cable 9" position.
Syracuse, New York WSYT-TV Fox dropped Was carried in Kingston, although over-the-air availability is weak to limited compared to WWNY-DT2. Despite the ready availability of a Watertown-based Fox TV affiliate, the Syracuse locals were dropped in favour of Buffalo NY after 2009's digital transition.[2]
Syracuse, New York WTVH-TV CBS dropped Was carried in Kingston; had been bumped to higher cable converter channels in favour of WWNY-TV.
Syracuse, New York WCNY-TV PBS No Intermittently viewable over-the-air in the Kingston-Watertown, New York market but notable by its absence from cable systems, which instead carry WPBS-TV (for Kingston and Ottawa) or WTVS-TV PBS Detroit (for Brockville, Ontario).
Rochester, New York WXXI-TV PBS Yes Carried on cable systems in Belleville, Cobourg, and along the northern shore of Lake Ontario. Was never available on cable in the Ottawa area, due to WPBS-TV. No longer viewable to anyone in the Kingston-Watertown market due to co-channel interference.
Rochester, New York WROC-TV CBS Yes Carried on cable systems in Belleville, Cobourg, and along the northern shore of Lake Ontario. Bumped from Ottawa-area cable systems.
Rochester, New York WHAM-TV ABC Yes Carried on cable systems in Belleville, Cobourg, and along the northern shore of Lake Ontario. Bumped from Ottawa-area cable systems.
