3) I've saved the dumbest question for last: what is CAD? I assume it's some sort of store like Costco, but I can't find it on line by googling CAD (all I get is something about the Canadian dollar).
Thanks again for the effort you put in.

I will skip some of your questions as my answer will cover them. Don't bother with bell. Bring your dish with you. Most of my family has Dish and use it here in Canada all the time. I wouldn't worry about calling dish to get the local channels, but if you want to, give Dish the zip code to the closest US town on the BC border.

As for CAD that means Canadian dollars.

Come and enjoy all that Canada has to offer and get your Niners games too!

The only thing a Bell subscription will give you is Canadian tv networks like CBC, CTV, Global and City. Our satellite providers don't offer local programming. Only cable does that. Canadian news will give you an entirely different perspective on the news than you get from US networks but if you can pickup local stations with your over the air antenna you'll get that for free.

Enjoy your stay in the great white north, although there's no white this time of year except at the top of the mountains!

Was going to stay out of this BUT just use your dish in Canada it will work and as for your phone I us AT&T it works they changeover to ROGERS cost a lot more but you can buy a Canadian plan before you leave as for the DISH i used it for years and if it quits just use your antenna for local Canadian stations.
