I'm paying good coin for (analog-legacy) cable TV.
Pulling substitution crap like this, for something I was planning to watch, does nothing to foster good customer relations or increase my perception of value for what I'm paying for.
I bought a relative in Windsor one of those 4-camera CCTV security systems (Zmodo) from Factory Direct for $160 for Christmas. It works surprisingly well, with web-based internet access and all.
I had him connect the output of his digital OTA convertor to one of the camera inputs, and tune the convertor to WWJ (CBS) Detroit. Using the web-based IE interface, I can watch WWJ here in London through the Zmodo box.
I'll be watching the "big game" tomorrow, US commercials and all...
