Jax, FL HD
Have any of you moved to Jax from another city and was able to keep your NY/LA HD feeds if you did not change your address with D*? I currently live in Ft. Lauderdale and I am receiving CBS/NBC and I would like to keep those channels if possible. I've been reading over the Jax thread and it seems at times you guys have issues with your stations. I plan to move to Jax in the fall and i want to get any idea of what the HD offerings are like. It appears that I would be leaving a more reliable HD DD 5.1 feeds(fox, nbc, cbs, wb, upn, pbs, abc) that I receive with no problem. Any info will be greatly appreciated.
The only stations in Jacksonville that broadcast DD 5.1 are Fox and occasionally PBS. Many of us (myself included) have had various degrees of success with antennae for OTA. There is always Comcast for a cable solution to locals. Even with the new bird successfully launched, Jacksonville will not be getting LIL from D* for some time.
There is no dedicated UPN station. It shares programming with the Fox affiliate and broadcasts programming starting at 11:00 PM, but unfortunately NOT in HD---So no Veronica Mars or Enterprise in HD
