Local TV Goes Digital on August 31, 2011: A Seamless Transition With Cogeco Cable

MONTRÉAL, CANADA--(Marketwire - June 16, 2011) - On August 31, 2011, at the request of the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission ("CRTC"), most local television broadcasters will switch their current analogue signals over to digital. Cogeco Cable wishes to inform its Television customers that they will not be affected by the transition and that they will continue to receive their channels using the equipment they already have.

Cogeco customers will continue to receive their TV networks with no interruption of service. They will not need to change their actual TV set or obtain any additional equipment for any TV set connected to Cogeco's cable service in order to maintain their current choice of channels.

In fact, the transition to digital TV will affect only TV sets that receive over-the-air signals via "rabbit ears" or an antenna on the roof. For additional information on the move to digital, visit

Cogeco Cable's HD customers will also benefit from this transition by receiving, when available, their local broadcasters programming in HD.
