Welcome HOME to SatelliteGuys! We are America's Most Popular Satellite Forum!
Terrain has alot to do with reasons people can't get OTA, Not Coverage.Based upon where I live in North Carolina -- along with nearby Georgia and South Carolina -- statewide OTA Public Televisions are probably the easiest to receive, compared to the commercial TV stations broadcasting ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox, etc. Most statewide Public Television networks want to cover the entire state and if there are gaps left by their full-power transmitting stations, they are filled with translators. Again, this is based on my part of the country -- your mileage may vary.
There are Millions that can't get OTA if they wanted too.
If you have locals channels on Dish Network, then PBS plays the same programming as Sprout, Where do we all think it came from.
