    Glad that Fox in Wichita, KS is on. However the first time I tried it, the program was blacked out.

      Ha! I have NBC and ABC where I live from DTVN…but no CBS or FOX.

      I would trade with you if I could. The shows/sports I watch the most on locals are on CBS and Fox.

    uh..1 problem though. You can only watch them most the time with constant issues on their end. Buffering, connection, outages, etc..I will check them later down the road to see if these issues are worked out and also when recording space is available😐

    Talk to me when they shovel some more gigahertz in their buffering machine.

    yeah was gonna kick this service to the curb till I decided to finally bite the bullet and do the 4 month promo for the 4K Apple TV and I am glad I did, no more buffering since I’ve gotten it on 11/22, only problem is when it’s simply out when there are outages, but that is what it is, happy now, was rather crappy on ROKU and Fire TV last I knew though buffering machine on those, well during the evening on ROKU, all the time on Fire TV Gen 2……

    Same old crap, another reason to be very selective when cutting the cord. A lot of money for a lot of junk.

    Still zero locals in the Omaha market. Antenna is fine for that though.
