    “This is being spun as a way to eliminate simultaneous substitution of advertisements, but it would probably make that issue moot since the U.S. stations couldn’t authorize their signals for distribution in Canada when carrying programming that the Canadian rights have been sold for.”

    Depends on type of signal, local or distant, and the contract terms for overlapping program rights in ota coutour areas.
