My cable TV provider provides local channels from both cities. However, they are nickel and diming me to death with the TV converter boxes, so I'm looking into satellite, which provides many more HD channels, costs less, and is much less for the TV receiver boxes.
Unfortunately DirecTV says my exact location means they can give me local channels from Baltimore only (shudder).
I need my Redskins games and inside the real Beltway news.
Here's my question:
Won't the satellite dish receive local DC over the air signals and into the coax cable so that if I want to watch a local DC TV channel, I can just switch my TV from "Cable" to "Air" and watch local DC channels over the air?
The antenna would point south toward the equator (and therefore, toward DC).
Will this work or is there another viable solution? My decision to switch hinges on knowing in advance whether or not this will work.
