My small city in West Virginia with just 3 stations within 50 miles, PBS is 56 miles away just added H&I to WDTV channel 5 and Start TV to WVFX channel 10, So with WBOY and its four channels and if add WNPB pbs we are up to 13, Do also get WTRF that 78 miles away most times,Probably woulld get it all the time with a better antenna but using a 7-10-13 antenna with a booster now. Anyways now we have in my area and small town.
I also grab Comet tv,TBD,Charge,Stadium,buzzr,cheddar before the were added to stirr.
Also grabbed these to pretty good ota channels from the net that are free and open AMGTV and Light TV,TBN,Smileofachild and Juce.
Now I grab from iGOcast Antenna TV which I can also grab from a ld station 25 miles away with my homemade 8bay. So with iGOcast
Buzzr, NewsNET, Antenna TV, Action Television,NewsMAX, Weather Nation, Rev'n, Retro TV, Vibrant TV, THIS TV, youtoo, BizTV, Justice Network,NASA,RNTV red nation tv,The Country Network
Plus there are all the shopping channels and religious channels that are free streamed on the net but I only wrote the OTA channels I can get even in a small town like I live in, Some from my antenna's and some from the internet but that a count of 44 that I actually might watch. But are really OTA in places like Pittsburgh Pa and Charleston WV I'm right in the middle of both 100-104 miles away. I think when atsc 3.0 comes out I be able to reach both cities with the right setup. Cause of error correction and other stuff built into astc 3.0.
Only channels mission to me are get tv,Movies,Cozi,Decades,Bounce,Quest and maybe 1 or 2 others I might watch. Who would really need cable when there is really an ota out there that is free that can match up with almost all of the cable stations.
