NOTICE: If you use an antenna to watch TV, this message is for you

CBC/Radio-Canada is shutting down its analogue over-the-air transmitters on July 31, 2012.

Are you affected?

If you use an antenna to watch television and receive an analogue signal from CBC Television or Télévision de Radio-Canada, you will need to change how you receive our TV services.

Cable and satellite subscribers are not affected by this, nor are those who receive a digital over-the-air signal. Fewer than two percent of Canadians will be affected by the shutdown of our analogue system.
