From what I've heard, the only way to get the local channels in HD is to buy a HD programming package from a cable/satellite provider but wanted to know if free HD was possible.
Yes you can. Go to www.antennaweb.org to see how far you are away from a OTA antenna.
Ok, I typed in my street addy (I'm in SoCal) and found that I am within 27-30 miles of most of the major networks. But on the list of channels, theres a ABC 7.1 and an ABC 7, whats the difference? Also, where would I go to buy an antenna?
thanks for the help
IIRC ABC has a digital channel that shows their Live Doppler 7000 radar image. This might be it.
A good place to find an antenna would be http://www.antennasdirect.com/LR_HDTV_A ... TV+antenna They have a 90 day money-back warranty period.
