You Are DPTV
My wife and I were thrilled when we found WTVS Ch. 56 after
we moved here to Windsor Ontario forty years ago. Over 60% of our TV watching is Ch. 56.
Since we watch it all of the time, it seemed only fair we should become
sustaining members. I feel this kind of support is essential, because DPTV is the
only good thing on TV both here and in Canada.
