Where in TV are you able to get these local networks. The OP is talking about 32159 which is the historic area of Lady Lake.

We already got the Roku and it's working great. When we're ready to pay for a channel package we have all the info we need thanks to y'all here on ToTV. We wouldn't get an antenna anyway, which I've said a few times already.

We at our house can attest to that.

That's impressive. What kind of antenna do you have and where is it mounted ? I tried one of those amplified window models (advertised something like 50 mile range) several years ago near Spanish Springs and was not able to get anything.

Antenna's direct clearstream 4v from home depot. Amazon has them also. I put a mount under the eaves so I did not have to put screws in the roof. Using a 4 port splitter/amplifier from the also

I'm across 441 in Stonecrest. I mounted a Direct DB8e Multidirectional Antenna in my attic and got 57 channels. I originally had the antenna in the living room testing it when I first got it. I only got 6 channels on the ground floor but moving it to the attic is where the antenna shined. Like a previous poster some channels are duplicate and some are in spanish (and religious). I have about 15 channels that I watch. I'm getting Fox, ABC, CBS, CW, Justice, Court, This, GRIT, QUEST, ION, My TV, Decades, MOVIE (old stuff) and a few more. I culdn't get NBC no matter where I rotated the antenna or had the booster switched on or off. Currently I'm hooked to one TV and the booster isn't needed to pull in the channels. As I add TVs I may need to switch on the booster.
