Re: Hopeless or possible? HDTV OTA

What do the cable companies use? Example, in Utica, NY, they have CKWS from Kingston, ON, which is about 100 air miles away. I asked awhile ago what they used, but I didn't understand the technical details of the antenna then.

Most of them use antenna towers, some use fiber links to local stations, and a few use satellite.

I once had a cable co that used DishNetwork to get a few local channels. I knew because during a storm it lost signal and said searching for signal with the dishnetwork logo on it.
