At least you can get CHCH over the air.
Accessing local stations is something I had forgotten about. For Kingston this is what I found (seems we are OK?)
"As of September 2011, no Canadian terrestrial station serving Kingston has applied for a digital transitional television license. Kingston was not one of the 31 markets in which the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) imposed a mandatory analogue shutdown on August 31, 2011.
CKWS currently has no plans for digital terrestrial operation in Kingston nor at its other translators in Prescott and Smiths Falls. CKWS has converted its Brighton translator CKWS-TV-1 to digital channel 30 on August 31, 2011 due to the fact that its current analog UHF channel 66 falls in the band that will be reallocated; however, the digital signal will not be broadcast in HD until CKWS installs the appropriate equipment in their studios.
CKWS is available digitally as part of the Bell TV and Shaw Direct satellite pay-TV packages.
Its sister station CHEX-TV is expected to "probably not be broadcasting HD over-the-air until the end of 2011, at the earliest.""
