Currently you can get PBS, ABC and NBC locals in HD via TWC. FOX-HD is available OTA, but not on cable as Sinclair is making a stink about wanting money for retransmit rights. Local CBS station is dragging it's feet on switching to HD.
Obviously you need one of the HD STBs to view the HD channels.
If you currently have that package, I believe they call that the digipack 1000. You should get about $5-$10 bucks off for that package. You won't get many extreme deals since you are already a customer.
My only way to get HD is thru Time Warner. I plan on getting a Plasma sometime, sooner better than later. However half my viewing is on FOX/CBS. Should I wait for summer/fall and new models and perhaps one more HD network or am I just losing 3-9months of Plasma enjoyment?
I'm pretty pissed at timewarner rochester at the moment, i had an HD-DVR for 1 day on Feb 15th, it broke that night (SA8300HD). I STILL dont have an HDDVR, so i miss most of the 4 shows i bought the TV to watch, retentions dept. at TW hears from me every 3 days.
I think its rediculous that I pay $120/month to this company, and I have to download my tv shows (semi legally? illegally?) off the freakin internet to see them in HD
(Not much activity here in the Rochester thread, but I'll ask anyway.)
Does anyone know of an inexpensive and (if outdoor is necessary) unobtrusive antenna for OTA HDTV? I'm only looking to receive the main three networks: NBC, CBS, ABC. My own research indicates that a Channel Master 3021 might work or perhaps an indoor Zenith Silver Sensor. I'd prefer the indoor option for aesthetic reasons if possible.
I'm about 12 miles from the intended transmitters. Is anyone receiving OTA HD that can share their setup and/or experiences?
Thanks juliox. That's exactly the info I was looking for. I live about 5 miles from that intersection in Greece and am looking for reception in my basement home theater. Silver Sensor looks like the ticket.
