Smile What TV channels do you get WITHOUT cable in Birmingham?

Yes, I know. Very random question. But just wondering. I may have to do without cable for a few months when I get my new apartment. Just wondering what channels do you get without cable in the Birmingham area? Thanks!

Well assuming you have both a digital antenna and a digital converter you should be able to get a good many. i think the website is tvfool.com which shows the location and direction of different stations in the area.

I'm in Southside and can't seem to get PBS or ABC. I think if you are near a hill your reception may be affected.
