You can enter your zipcode in the following link and see what channels are listed:

I don't understand...either channel 9 shows up in that link, or it does not. 150 miles is too far for OTA, so the sat channel is the only way. :confused:

Depends where your local channels are and if you can receive them OTA. I live in Harpers Ferry WV and I have KTTV (Fox 11) and KCBS (CBS 2) from LA. It's great because I am from there and I get to see home. Unfortunately there are in SD.

That's what i want to do have a fake address get la locals i can but for sd only can't seem to get a signal for the hd ones. Maybe im to far away to get signal from la to get hd through the new satellite. Im 150 miles away from downtown. I wonder far away u can live away from los angeles to get the hd channels any know respond?
