The FCC has some pretty useful maps for finding out what digital TV signals are available to you based on your location: http://www.fcc.gov/m...gineering/maps/

I put up an antenna recently and was successful in getting between 10 and 15 digital channels in my Toronto area suburb, all free and all clear. These maps are useful BUT the immediate vicinity is critical. While testing things out, I noticed that I could get about 4 to 5 channels more by placing the antenna in the backyard as opposed to the front yard. Buildings and trees have an affect on signal strength.

The maps also don't list any Canadian channels.
