That's a good point Rob...I wish they would just offer the antenna...I only have 1 local station, PBS and two Canadian stations. Would be nice to keep up on the Canadian operations within our area.

I had DISH for 10 years. Bill kept going up. I warned them. Then I canceled them and said to them...3 weeks you’ll be offering me knew client deals. Sure enough. Nope! Been 12-15 years ago and no satellite or cable since. No tv channels either. LOL!

No...we use antenna for local channels and it does just fine for down in the hole...next worse thing to living on a hill. Least I’m sheltered from the cold winds.

Don’t miss the channels going out during storms and never miss spending all the money for reruns. I do miss RFDTV and educational stuff.

I notice that YouTube only has snippets of Fox News now, instead of mostly full episodes of Dobbs, Carlson, Hannity, and Ingraham.

They need to speed it up Fred....this is definitely a top priority to get this done. I hope it complete by the weekend so you have decent entertainment. I'm rooting for ya...but only for the top notch results. Be well and my thoughts go to the Creator, God, Allah or anything of the like. 😔

FF, your turning into one of those people who watch all the commercials for drugs followed by the lawyers suing the drug companies whose commercial you just watched. If you see a lot of feminine hygiene commercials you are probably watching the wrong shows.

I know that your wrath will be distributed appropriately and fairly if they don't figure out your priority with this particular desire! Thunder, lighting, hellfire, etc.....😁 There is no threat....it is a reality, ya just don't disappoint the man on the hill.🙂

Well, ORBY was again a no-show--soooo, I called & cancelled out--they're a young upstart co. & maybe down the road I might try again. So much for that $30.00 extra $$$ per year!! LOL
