Interesting. I thought we'd get the same, but this just gives me more of a reason to get the Lincoln channels too.

If I can get a strong signal on the Omaha stations, I don't care if I have the Lincoln stations. Whatever football games are shown in Omaha I'm sure will be the same as the ones in Lincoln.
