Default Ota antenna metv

I have always gotten METV on my OTA antenna for the last 4 years. The last 3 months it has been missing. I do realize the frequencies are changing and i have re-scanned multiple times. I am south of 466a. Has anyone else gotten METV in the last 3 months. I do realize it is working on cable provides but not on OTA (over the air antenna)

I receive the channel on 2.2 after I did the required re-scan. I am also using a Clearstream 2 Max.

I didn't realize I needed to rescan my TVs. Did something change January 1? I used to get channels 2.3 and 2.4 (WESH-TV's alternate transmitters in Orange City) but I don't get them anymore. Rescanning didn't change that, so I'm guessing WESH took that transmitter down. Recently, I wasn't getting channels 9 or 24, but the rescanning fixed that.

We’re new owners in TV, and have always used OTA, and streamed with xfinity (Michigan). What’s the best antenna to mount in the attic? Will we still get good reception that way? I’m a big “Good Morning America” person (ABC), so I want to be sure to receive that as a local. Suggestions??

i am not sure what is going on, i always received METV until they changed the frequencies, i believe they have till summer of 2020 to get them up. I a not sure if Orlando is still broadcasting METV channel 2.2 and 2.3. I have re-scanned with multiple devices and multiple times still no 2.2 and 2.3.

Where is the best company to buy and install a antenna. I have heard some antennawill not work because we're so far away from Orlando broadcast antennas. The I see more people cutting the cord and using antennas. Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

DB4e 4-Element Bowtie Attic/Outdoor HDTV Antenna and use a add on antenna for vhf to pic up METV.
South of 44 probably wont need the add on vhf but just south of 466a will.
i would recommend calling the A/V guy Tom to set yours up, he has put in 800 of them and knows his stuff.
You will have to search the forms for his info

Custom TV and Satellite

BTW.. You CAN have an outside antenna and it will greatly help with your reception..
