    Actually, I am very surprised we pick up as well as we do being so far from the towers.


    My husband about tripped over the clearstream 4V at best buy as an open box special. We opened it up, made sure everything was in the box and hoped for the best. After we checked out, we ran to the car like we stole it; it was that good of a deal.

    There is a Facebook page called "Cord Cutting Tech Support" that I have found very helpful with over 20K + people as members.
    I got the 2V the same way. Honestly if I could get 4, 5, 7 and 9 I would call it good. Unfortunately 7 and 9 are VHF and I don't get them at all. I get 5 good and 4 sometimes. I might go and get a 4V. I can't decide

    Dish has been out about an hour for us due to the weather but my OTA is still working clearly.

    That is why I have always said that even if you don't use your OTA for the intended purpose (to completely cut the cord), it still has a valuable purpose.

    Hopefully we keep internet but I have doubts.

    Awesome. I have a 32" Samsung TV I got last month and bought the Roku Premiere last week at Wally World for $60 - totally impressed with them both! Now add this free channel plus all the other ones. And I already had a subscription to Netflix and it was so easy setting that up on Roku. I am set!

    PlutoTV is another one I like - it works with my OTA and gives me a few extra channels. Many 24/7 news channels.


    Hulu just changed their interface and I hate it.

    It makes my head hurt and the background is just too light for viewing. I don't see a way to change the settings and a search online shows many unhappy people with this change.

    I briefly looked at PlutoTV the other night and was impressed with the variety of options - for FREE!

    It looks interesting, but I don't know if it is worth me having two paid subscription services as I rarely stop long enough to watch anything. I think Hulu has a free trial period so I may try it out eventually.

    The new Hulu interface is to facilitate the use of their streaming TV service. I agree that it sucks, FF/RW no longer shows a preview, it's hard to see what is selected, they no longer show original airdate, and finding anything except for the latest episode or last unwatched episode of a series is a hassle.

    Svengoolie

    Some people were rather pissed METV changed Svengoolie to a new time on the East Coast. They moved the time from 10 p.m to 8 p.m. but they said last week was the highest amount of viewers in history. Now granted, they showed Frankenstein but still.

    Now for other OTA people in our area, I was having trouble with channels 7 and 9 for nearly 2 weeks. I changed the amp but learned the amp wasn't a problem. This past weekend everything returned to normal and it seems 7 and 9 have better signals.

    I was wondering if other OTA peeps noticed a signal loss on those channels?


    I still have satellite TV (Dish) on just 1 TV. My husband couldn't live with just OTA and likes the fact he can use his phone to view while working his odd ball hours. I am the one who is totally fine with just OTA.

    I wasn't pissed, but just forgot. Tuned in tonight at the tail end of WereWolf.

    My antenna is UHF only, so I don't get 7/9 as they are VHF. Can't verify that for ya. But I have noticed that all channels have been a bit weak recently. Might be a change in the atmosphere as winter is approaching. Should get better soon.
