Did you sign up for D-TV HD package? You just need a good OTA antenna to run into the antenna lead on your D-TV receiver. Check "AntennaWeb.org" to determine which antenna you need. Just remember, your picture quality (in HD) depends on how decent an antenna you get..

NBC is the only station I don't get a strong OTA signal from. I would like to enjoy the HD programming available if I can. Please let me know!
I have been told the Columbus NBC station is company owned which means you should get a waiver since it O&O by NBC. No additional charge. Call D-TV and ask them to submit a waiver request for NBC.
