This is correct. I have my laptop connected to my TV. The major broadcast networks have around 4 or 5 of the last episodes on their websites. Hulu also has some, the free ones you can only access on a computer. Hulu Plus subscription is needed for using the apps. When you watch shows from the major networks on Hulu, they usually have the local affiliate logo on the bottom, just like if you watched it live locally.

Do you mean for local programming? I think WSB has the most news and the most watched news. The rest have been trying to catch up for years. I'd put Fox 5 second when it comes to news. 46 seems to have decided to hire attractive women to pump up ratings. Hasn't worked so far. The AJC has a blog on the local TV and radio stations. http://radiotvtalk.blog.ajc.com/
But the good thing, IMO, are the networks that show old content, MeTV, Bounce, Antenna TV and Movies! TV Network.
Univision is the only station with two HD feeds. And they have saved me a couple times when it comes to sports, when ESPN3 crapped out during the USA World Cup game and for most of the F1 races.
And 69, UPN has one of the strongest signals from where I am in W. Cobb.
Ion has the weakest signal for me of the HD networks, the transmitter is behind me and my installer told me I'd have to add another antenna to get it.
