Thanks.. did you think that FOX and ABC OTA looked a little fuzzy the last couple of weeks.. it might just be my TV.. not sure, but i was waiting for the Direct Tv hd locals before i made a final decision..

Can anyone comment on the quality of the Directv HD locals in Ft. Myers as compared to Comcast cable? Better, worse, about the same?

for sure there is Something wrong with FOX HD. It is broadcasted with the black bars on the side. but when i switch to COMCAST OTA. FOX HD IS FINE. as for the other locals. they appear to be equal to OTA COMCAST..

What is OTA COMCAST? OTA usually means Over The Air (as in using an antenna) and Comcast would imply cable. I'm guessing you mean cable?

with my HOA i have to pay for basic cable, and it is thru comcast. i dont have a HD cable box because i use direct TV. So yes i was getting my HD locals thru OTA ( Over the Air).. and because it was coming thru my cable line i just figured it was thru comcast...
