If memory serves correctly, some NBC shows were 16:9 before HD was even a thing. I remember my dad complaining about the "black bars" and missing some of the image. He still, to this day, doesn't...

Nope.

The signal is at an angle so the rain doesn't need to be directly above you. Clouds shouldn't knock it out, ever.

Many say, and I agree, that Directv has the best PQ. I have seen Fios, and it's good. Comcast is highly variable.

Nice try! You're lucky to get ANY HD without a box. You will either need to deal with the 480 or get a box. It sucks, I know, and those fees add up fast!

"s
WVNY is a VHF RF signal (ch 13) so an indoor antenna would not do well with it. Perhaps a new antenna is in order.

Some random activity: 57-2 is now in SD 16:9 (like 3-2 and 5-2) so it won't...
