Re: What channels can I get without a STB? My FiOS head end serves two regions - one on the north side of the town I'm in (DC market) and the south side of town (Richmond, VA market). Though I'm only supposed to get the DC stations, I get a couple of the Richmond OTA stations on Clear QAM channels that I don't get on my STB or my Ceton tuner.
So it's worth your while to hook up your TV directly to the coax and see what you get when you do a channel scan.
