Watching WPLG without Comcast
Updated On: Apr 15 2011 01:54:57 PM EDT
Viewers who can no longer watch WPLG on their Comcast cable systems can still receive our programs by following a few simple steps.
First of all, if you are using an older analog set, you will need an HD set or a DTV converter box.
You will also need an antenna.
Check out antennasdirect.com. They sell really nice long-distance, outdoor antennas.
dennysantennaservice.com is another great resource. Not only do they sell equipment, the website also has a lot of information, including a very helpful blog to help you maximize you over-the-air reception.
Additionally, antennaweb.org is a great site that shows distance and direction from your location to the various tower sites in South Florida. The site offers recommendations as to the strength of the antenna you will need.
Unfortunately, having an outdoor antenna is your only option to continue watching WPLG. Hope this helps!
