    So, if they put OMNI.2 on channel 14, what will happen to the ABC affiliate from Buffalo? Or is this the first step in eliminating US networks from basic cable to protect the losing Canadian networks? Or will they start arranging the US networks in a way so that some people can’t see them anymore? (For example, putting ABC on a security-cam channel, as they have done for years in our neighbourhood with CPAC?).

    I find this decision outrageous; new channels should be added to the end of the spectrum, instead of pushing existing channels out of basic packages or worse.

    I think this is a CRTC rule, the locals can bump the US nets higher. Shaw out here has them in the 50’s I believe. When the NewVI launched KVOS12 from Bellingham was bumped from it’s longterm spot at 12 on cable as well.

    Looks like the re-branding has already started (the first phase of it anyway). Last night I saw some vids from Toronto, and it looked like CFMT’s already using an "OMNI News" mic flag.
