I agree with - 6-7 network feeds will be fine.telekol said:i would rather see national feeds of networks in hd/dt abc,nbc,cbs,fox,wb,upn,pbs- this would allow everyone to get the networks....not enough local programming worth carrying ALL the locals
Thank you for this information.stucky_boss said:grab this from another forum:
In my case Voom got a different installer to come out, he
seemed to know exacly what I needed for my location
(East Bay of San Francisco Bay Area) - he brought a Channelmaster
3021/4221. After some very fine direction adjustments
all OTA channels for my area showed up. No charge
BTW, first installer wanted to put a rotor on the Stealth to solve
the problem - I was not very keen on this, sounded like a clumsy solution
when antennaweb.org was indicating that the Stealth was
simply the wrong type of antenna to catch all channels in my area.
Glad Voom listened to me and had a more knowledgeable
guy sent out.
The only thing that is free in this world is Swiss cheese in the mousetrap.PSB said:I agree, this is what they have in the UK "Freeview" we should not have to pay ANYTHING for a national local channel feed, there are some free local channels "up there" on DVB Mpeg2 satellite from around the country, thats what I use same shows but the news is from whatever local channel up pick up! But they are free!
When I was on the phone with VOOM CSR yeasterday he told me that they get many requests to carry local channels on satellite. He said that company is aware of that , but did not speculate any further on what they might decide.cyuhnke said:UK viewers pay a tax based on how many TVs they have, even if they don't watch the national networks. I agree Voom should carry the national feeds, but only if legislation changes occur to allow everyone to get them. And that will NEVER happen, so what's the point. Voom giving people antennas is a clear indication that it isn't going to provide local channels throgh the satellite.

Unfortunately bigger, eaglier antenna is not an option for me because of HOA regulations. I'm currently trying to get VOOM to pay for Sguareshooter antenna and it's installation - I will let you know if they agree to it and if it will make any difference.
I'm familiar with that legislation, but it only applies to the areas that are exclusively used by resident, such us patio or balcony. Roof is property of HO assotiation and this FCC regulitions unfortunately does not apply here.seandudley said:
