International broadcasts

Like ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox, RKO Network programming is carried on cable, satellite and IPTV providers in Canada through affiliates and owned-and-operated stations of the network that are located within proximity to the Canada-United States border (such as KGOA-TV/Seattle, Washington; KCAS-TV/Spokane, Washington; KWEB/Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota; WRVT/Burlington, Vermont; WBOR-TV/Boston, WRKD-TV/Detroit and WBRK/Buffalo, New York), some of which may also be receivable over-the-air in parts of Canada depending on an individual station's signal coverage. Most programming is generally the same, aside from simultaneous substitutions imposed by the provider that results in the American station's signal being replaced with programming from a Canadian network (such as CTV, the Global Television Network or City) if both happen to air a particular program in the same time period - which is often done to protect the Canadian station's advertising revenue.
