Disappeared is good.

If you like true crime and listen to any podcasts, check out Crime Junkie through iTunes or Spotify.
Have you listened to the Serial podcast?

No, not yet! I just learned about that one recently. Do you recommend it?

I've been a true crime fan since I was a kid, and I am especially interested in serial killers.

You might prob get about 40 stations from a small flexible sheet like size of 8 X 11 or similar I just draped one over a curtain rod in a window.

If you can scan channel 3 which is digital 33 there are 13 subchannels including several radio stations etc.
But you should get the other networks too.

Total internet TV & Cable is $60 a month and can cancel anytime.
wow - optimum told me there cheapest internet plan was $45 a month - need to find out about the $20 plan - thanks

and $60 is very good for both TV and internet - optimum was 66$ but VERY basic and verizon was $104

The Phase 5 repack does not affect any NYC stations. The NYC stations moved back on August 2nd as part of Phase 4. The only NYC station that is left to move is WNET-13 which is part of phase 9 that will be completed in May of next year.

I am interested especially in internet services and cable tv. I assume electricity and gas are a monopoly (correct me if i am wrong)
If you have a choice, I recommend Verizon FIOS over Comcast. The service and customer service is much better with Verizon FIOS.

The kids here were paying the cable bill and didn't watch much TV, we dumped cable, kept internet. I had an antenna already mounted outside on a wooden stick, Southern Union County. Yep all 71 TV channels, solid. Note 6 of those are radio stations on TV subcarriers so its really about 65 TV channels, all the broadcast networks, and all the stuff we ever watch anyway. The antenna was even pointed down and sideways but works totally fine. Knocked about $100 monthly off the bill.

The antenna cost maybe $5 or $10 at a computer store up North. Its attached out the 2nd floor although could go higher, we just dont need to and there are large trees in the way.

I also discovered 'locast' on Roku - which give about 15 channels via stream - all obviously clear. Including nbc, cbs, fox, abc and pbs which is what i wanted. So this is a good, easy and cheap alternative if the antenna option doesn't work (which for me it didn't)
