While reading through the posts about Dish buying VOOM, I read that VOOM offers new subs an OTA capable of pulling in stations 80 miles away. I know that 80 miles is probably on a clear day, but what kind of antenna's are they using?
I use a simple set top antenna to pick up one of my locals in HD. It would be nice to be able to pick up more HD channels (ABC, NBC, FOX, and UPN) out of Indianapolis (~60-70 miles away) How much would one of these 'VOOM' antennas cost? For those of you VOOM subs, how well do the antennas work?
