Shows that were not on broadcast TV in the US may have been on
broadcast TV in other countries. I know that The Sopranos was on OTA
in Canada. As for other programs, how do you think they reach the
cable companies? They are uplinked to a satellite, and I'm sure some
(most?) of the signal misses the bird and goes furter off into the
Lake Wobegone, NH
