FTA In The Backwoods

« on: October 10, 2020, 02:50:53 AM »

Iím in a location where OTA reception is just not feasible    Since the network has changed their sat feed parameters I no longer have a stb that will play the feeds easily. Iím not a big fan of streaming but is there a reliable stream that carries the CBS programming?  The wife loves the Christmas shows and I would like to have a solution I place by the time these are aired

Thanks.

You CAN receive C-band on a 1.2m dish!

Any chance NBC will have similar shows? NBC could be available on Ku FTA. I'm not aware of CBS streaming of their regular programming except for CBSN.tv on cbsnews.com (a good source but mostly news and short human interest segments) and CBS All Access on cbsnews.com. CBS All Access is $5.99/month and may provide the programming you're looking for.

Why is OTA not feasible? Is it due to your physical location or for a technical reason?

Itís my location that messes things up. My elevation is good but Iím in a bowl of sorts surrounded by higher elevations on all sides. If you can trust some of the plots I would need a tower close to 200 feet to make much of a dent in reception. And the internet here is not reliable but then again the power isnít either 😆

Don't trust those OTA modeling sites completely, they are all "best GUESS". You should TRY installing an outside antenna, and try for yourself to see if you can receive anything. You may be surprised to find that you can.

I agree with the ability to trust the plot sites. I did put up 50 feet which was all the mast I could handle and I didn't get anything to lock except the Nc Educational TV translator on Phoenix mountain and it wasn't perfect. Not a sniff on any of the other "local" candidates. Talk about a challenged site this is it!   I could probably go up the road about a mile or so and likely do good but I don't have access to the higher locations. But I'm working on it  grin
