I've recently been thinking about finally cutting the cord on TWC. I've heard about the TV Fool site so I thought I would check it out to see what stations I can receive with an antenna and the results I got are pretty disappointing. I live in Durham, right inside of RTP and according to TV fool the only stations in the green are PBS, Univision and W24CP(have no idea what channel that is). My question is are these results pretty accurate? Is there anything I can do to receive better stations or is there an antenna people recommend? Or am I screwed because of my location?
Anything in Green and yellow should be easily receivable - but you may need more antenna that you were counting on, and it really should be placed outside above the roof. Most of our local stations are just east of Garner (you can see them easily driving down I-40 down to Smithfield / Benson)
DISNEY, NICK, ABCFAM, CARTOON, TBS, USA, TNT, FX, BRAVO, LIFETIME, DISCOVERY, ESPN, ESPN2, AMC, TCM, NEWS 14, FOXNEWS (HBO, SHO) are all coming through in HD on my Digital Tuner adapter on ALL channels they are on. Example, USA is in HD on channel 25, 300 & 1300. The locals however are only in HD in the 1000's.
What do you guys think of Centurylink Prism HD? I think it looks incredible. The system certainly blows away cable IMO. Anyone have it?
They are running GPON FTTH with Microsoft Middleware which is very nice. I seen Northstate's set up with this middleware and it very expensive and blows aware Minerva which I using in my system with Calix.
