goofy:"If you live in Canada, you have a Canadian cable system. And while you have access to American television stations, they do not "broadcast" Fox News, it is a cable service.

Do you understand anything?"


Apparently, it is you that don't 'understand' things.


The US and Canada have an agreement along the border of which channels are used by the US and which by the Canadians.

If you go to Detroit, there is a FOX News station. Within 60 miles of Detroit there are millions of Canadians that can tune in FOX News

If you go to Buffalo, there are millions and millions of Canadians that get the Buffalo Fox news station.

Same for WAshington STate.

All along the Canadian border are US stations ..including FOX.

Yes, likely Canadians aren't all that interested in US news.....but most of them probably have access to Fox News direct or on cable systems. Just like we don't watch Canadian News..even though you can watch it on the internet.

We do have BBC news here in TX...and some places carry Al Jazeera......

Of course, if you live in Quebec...you might only speak French....so that also limits any US station's appeal..or any US news source not also broadcast in French.


You got Fox News all along the border.....Potsdam NY...Burlington VT....etc....
