Well you might be surprised. If you have, or can get an indoor antenna, give it a try. A lot of folks have one stored somewhere in a pile of stuff. If you do, sweep around to Springfield, where there is ABC,FOX, NBC, and PBS. I think WFSB has a low power station there as well.
I have Cox on my component input and a 2 bay bow tie antenna at just above gutter height, in my antenna input. My may reason was to get WGBY as a backup/ different schedule/ PBS station. I do have a good shot to the North from my location (central CT) and Springfield stations are no problem. My emergency TV is my laptop with an antenna for local news.
It's out there. I'm not shooting down Cox because I do enjoy the variety, but an alternative is good to have. My two cents.
