Question initially reminds me of the "rural" or "urban" debacle on a classic episode of Bob Eubank's "The Newlywed Game". But, I digress...
Being "rural" is not contingent on OTA TV reception. The Merriam-Webster definition of rural is: relating to the country, country people or life, or agriculture. So, I suppose if you're even a few miles from a large city (and its television stations broadcast towers) and you're in a farming area then you'd be living in a rural area -- but being close to the towers would provide great OTA reception.
So to the poster, what kind of antenna setup do you have? Your profile also states you live in Greenwood. I did a query for Greenwood on this FCC DTV website:http://www.fcc.gov/mb/engineering/maps/
...and it shows you should have very good reception from the Greenville and Augusta stations. Although weaker, you could even get some Columbia and Charlotte stations. Enter your street address into the website I listed and see what kind of reception you should be getting. The site assumes an outdoor antenna, 30 ft above the ground.
