I live in the Davenport area, almost equidistant from both Orlando and Tampa signals. With my indoor antennas, I mostly get Orlando signals, but can sometimes get the Tampa signals. What's odd is that this northeastern corner of Polk County is considered part of the Tampa market, so cable and satellite in this area all get fed Tampa channels. (Brighthouse gives us one Orlando signal, WFTV, ABC - but it's only in SD.)
I get WKMG, CBS out of Orlando, fairly regularly on the antenna. It has a habit of winking in and out at times, but mostly it's reliable. When we first moved here in 2010, Channel 10 out of Tampa was still a bad signal and we never got even a sniff of it, but they moved the tower to Riverview like all of the other Tampa stations and now I can get them on antenna once in awhile, but of course more reliably on the cable.
So I guess I have the optimal situation for a football fan - the antenna gets once city and the cable gets the other - and the games do occasionally differ.
Same with FOX. I can easily get 35 from Orlando on the antenna, and then get 13 from Tampa on the cable, and occasionally their games differ too.
The irony here is that I don't really care all that much about football. Figures, right?
