In most metros, if you can put a satellite dish up you should be able to put an antenna up. You can get your local networks free without relying on satellite or cable.

I tried to explain the antenna for off air locals to the bartender that was blacked out of the local affiliate's KC Chiefs game Sunday.

She had Direct TV with the NFL ticket - couldn't understand it

there was a walmart a half mile down the road.  If I didn't have a tee time I would have grabbed an indoor antenna and hooked her up

Dish Network and Dish-owned Sling TV have dropped the Big Ten Network and some Fox sports channels in a contract dispute.

I gave up on Dish, DirectTV, Sling and Spectrum two years ago and switched to You Tube TV. Very happy with them.  Only bad thing is there is about a 20 second broadcast delay and had to tell kids and friends not to text me right away after a good or bad plays. LOL
