I just moved to Bakersfield this past week. I decided that I'd get rid of satellite and get cable (several reasons. . . cable just seemed to offer more of what I wanted). When I called Brighthouse to order services, they said 'Oh yes, we have all the major networks in HD'. Of course, they don't. Now I'm faced with watching the football games broadcast on Fox in standard definition, something I'm not terribly happy about.
I'd like to receive Fox and PBS broadcasts in HD. The trouble is, I can't really put up a huge mast outside my apartment to grab the OTA signals from Fresno. Has anyone found luck with an indoor antenna in the Bakersfield area? I'm off California about 1/4 mile West of the freeway.
I also have a window in a second floor room with nothing of importance in it (read: an ugly antenna could be put there) with a direct view of the North. Looking out the window, the view to the North is more or less unobstructed.
I'm guessing the only way to get Fox is going to be with an antenna. It seems the same hold true for PBS. Any suggestions?
