Interesting TV App

I recently stumbled across an app simply entitled DTV Antennas. It will show you all the signals [call letters and actual channel location] available where one is located. There is a map option that physically shows via a little stick the location of every transmitter in Canada and the U.S. For Canada, only the calls and channel number are provided. For the U.S. call letters, actual and virtual channel numbers are indicated. A basic contour map is also shown to advise where the station can be viewed. The maps, I am assuming, are for reception not requiring an outdoor antenna because WUTV and WNED are the only two Buffalo stations where Toronto is included in the coverage map. The maps for WGRZ, WIVB and WKBW reach about halfway between Hamilton and St. Catharines. Also, all low powered stations are included.

Re: Interesting TV App

Thanks. I'll gladly stick with IPTV services. Many to choose from.

Many ota networks don't broadcast on IPTV (or cable, for that matter).

Many do though. I am able to watch Antenna, Buzr, Bounce and many others without a problem.
(& that's just the non cable options-many cable channels)

*Important edit note: I DO NOT work for an IPTV service and I am NOT a reseller of anything. 
Therefore, I am best not to mention any particular IPTV company at this time.
