Streaming local channels by zip code

I live between 2 streaming service areas although my zip code assigns me to one of them. However, the area to which I am assigned only has 2 streaming local stations. I did receive all the locals from the other area for a while but can no longer. I have repeatedly requested to get those channels again, even going to the expense of static IP, but am told I can only receive those in my geographically assigned location, regardless of the fact that there are only 2 networks available. Can anyone explain the technical issue or logic behind this?  And, yes, I have an outdoor antenna but reception from either direction can be iffy.
