Can I get my antenna girled instead? I prefer girls. ;-)
DishTV offers locals for either $5.00 when combined with another package, or else $6.00 when purchased alone. I've already talked to a phone rep, and she confirmed I would only need to pay $6 if I want my seven local stations. However the dish/box would be sold separately, unless DishTV is running a "free equipment" special.
Rather than waste a lot of money & crawling around on a roof trying to install an antenna, I might just take this $6 a month deal. Or the $19 Comcast deal. It depends on my mood.

You answered your own question. You have two separate antennas... one for VHF (rabbit ears) and one for UHF (loop). The 4228 is only one antenna: UHF.
And yes the 4228 also works on VHF-hi, but merely by coincidence not design. I can get channels 8, 10, 11, 12, 13 Analog on mine. No idea how digital performs, but I'm hoping it's good, because I have several digital stations on VHF post-2009:
8 - lancaster
10 - harrisburg
11 - baltimore
12 - philadelphia
13 - baltimore
So I'll either have success, or I'll be adding a 7-13 VHF Yagi to supplement the 4228, or I'll be watching channel 8 and nothing else. In retrospect I probably should have bought a UHF/VHF combo antenna, but it's too late now.
