For years my locals quality was about the same on Antenna or thru Directv Receiver. I could switch back and forth on College Football games and could see very little difference. Now when I switch there is significant difference. The OTA is alot better in detail and overall quality. I had always heard that the OTA was better, but before it was small if at all from what I could tell. This year is very noticeable. Is Directv squeezing some of the data from the signal ? It seems most noticeable on College Football Games.
