Mon­treal­ers Can Watch HDTV for Free with Mario's HD Bunny

Montreal Times - - News -

When Canada made the tran­si­tion to dig­i­tal tele­vi­sion back in the sum­mer of 2011, peo­ple were told they would no longer be able to pick up lo­cal ana­log TV sig­nals. Many Mon­treal­ers, es­pe­cially se­niors, un­der­stood it to mean they would need to start pay­ing for ca­ble in or­der for them to watch any TV at all. But there’s a lit­tle se­cret no ca­ble or satel­lite TV provider wants the pub­lic to know much about. It is free, over the air high def­i­ni­tion TV - and Mario Trot­tier, a TV sig­nal spe­cial­ist knows how to make it hap­pen.

Two years ago he de­signed a dig­i­tal an­tenna, ex­clu­sive to Mon­treal, called the 'HD Bunny'. It is a rab­bit-ear dig­i­tal HD an­tenna con­structed to point at all the HDTV broad­cast tow­ers serv­ing Mon­treal at the same time, max­i­miz­ing the num­ber of chan­nels his cus­tomers are able to re­ceive. He also in­stalls his an­ten­nas us­ing spe­cial cus­tom­ized equip­ment, a spec­trum an­a­lyzer that de­ter­mines ex­actly where the broad­cast tow­ers are in re­la­tion to his cus­tomer’s homes. It is saving peo­ple sig­nif­i­cant money, while of­fer­ing ac­cess to some of the most pop­u­lar HDTV chan­nels.

All that you need to have in place is a flat screen TV not older than 8 years - and if not, a dig­i­tal HDTV recorder will work and can be pur­chased for around $65 dol­lars.

Most peo­ple have no idea all the ma­jor U.S. net­works (CBS, NBC, PBS, ABC and FOX) are avail­able to them for free, nor that they do not need a ca­ble or satel­lite sub­scrip­tion to watch lo­cal sta­tions like CFCF 12, CBC, Global or TVA any­more. In ad­di­tion, there are sev­eral free HD chan­nels de­voted to news, sports, weather and movies which are only avail­able over the air.

Mario's HD Bunny is a spe­cial Tri-Di­rec­tional an­tenna - man­u­fac­tured for the Mon­treal area.There are 3 dif­fer­ent trans­mit­ter sites: Mount Royal, Mount Mansfield near Burling­ton & Lyon Moun­tain near Platts­burgh. Mon­treal­ers across the is­land can re­ceive free sig­nals for just about all the 22 HDTV chan­nels cur­rently ac­ces­si­ble - with more soon to come. Just de­pend­ing on the ter­rain and ob­sta­cles, you may not get all them all. For ex­am­ple, if you live in Outremont, Mount Royal will block the sig­nal from Burling­ton.

Mario is a satel­lite and ter­res­trial TV sig­nal spe­cial­ist - and very well qual­i­fied in this area. He is con­sid­ered an 'ex­pert’s ex­pert' when it comes to tele­vi­sion. For over 30 years he’s been serv­ing Mon­treal­ers by build­ing & in­stalling their satel­lite sys­tems, closed cir­cuit TV net­works, an­tenna tow­ers and pretty well every­thing and any­thing TV-re­lated all through his com­pany Mario Trot­tier Ser­vices Tech­niques.

For more in­for­ma­tion or any ques­tions you may have con­cern­ing in­stal­la­tion and the an­tenna, please feel free to con­tact Mario.
