Does anyone have antenna TV in Portland? I'm thinking that this time around when I move, I'm going to go with only high speed internet and no cable TV. I don't watch much TV at all, and having an antenna would offer PBS, which is all that I watch. Does anyone have a TV with an antenna in Portland?

Please clarify the subject!

I thought you were talking about the AntennaTV retro subchannel, which Tribune Broadcasting has a stake in. It airs in Hartford/New Haven (CT) via WTIC-TV channel 61-2.

I know PBS in Portland/Poland Spring is WCBB-TV channel 10 of Augusta. There's also WMEA-TV channel 26 of Biddeford. I don't remember if they're simply a satellite of WCBB-TV or not. The last time I checked, WCBB-TV was using channel 17 for digital and had their transmitter in Litchfield, ME.

Oops, I'm not talking about the retro subchannel: antenna TV. I was asking about a TV with an actual antenna. I did find a website about broadcast over the air in various cities. Portland has a reasonable offering of PBS and the regular networks. Thanks for posting.
