Christopher Wilson commented on TC's blog post Over the air HDTV in Beacon?
"You don't need an NYC billing address any more, it open to dutchess county now too. $8/m gives you unlimited streaming and 20 hours of dvr. Cheaper than basic cable alone while also giving you dvr and you can watch on your mobile phone. Theres…"

"Only thing that comes in is RNN and the church channel. For anything else you need either basic cable, satellite, or aereo with a roku. "

Christopher Wilson replied to Dan Fainstein's discussion TV Antenna Reception in the group Public Discussion Forum
"You don't need the box, but your hdtv has to have a "QAM" tuner in it. Most newer ones do, but older ones don't. The HD versions won't be on the normal number ie 5 for fox, but will show as a sub channel. Fox in hd is 5-1.…"

"as Dan said, you don't need a box for basic if you have a QAM tuner. If your tv doesn't have one then you need a box for HD channels. In addition, they're moving to get rid of analog channels, so you'll eventually need a box for…"

"all digital doesn't mean its not over the air, its just compressed to take up less space on the airwaves and needs a set top box to tune if you're tv doesn't have an astc tuner. From what I've read a while ago trying to figure…"

"If the speed tests are fine then its not on their side, but as Charlie mentioned its probably the dns. When you load a web page it has to ask the dns server where to send you for that web address. if the server is slow to respond, the page will seem…"

Christopher Wilson replied to Karl and Jody's discussion Best Internet Provider? in the group Local Recommendations
"Yeah, I've had it for a bit over a year. All they have available is internet and phone. It seems like they only did a little bit of beacon then gave up, because I've heard from others that they can't get it either."

"I use Verizon Fios. Hasn't gone out once for me, but you can't get tv from them and the cablevision tripple play works out to be a good amount of savings."

"then you're probably on the tripple play. Once that ends then it will actually be expensive."

Christopher Wilson replied to Dan Fainstein's discussion TV Antenna Reception in the group Public Discussion Forum
"If you switch to basic you'd still be saving, as optimum online only increases by $5. Assuming you have Family cable at $55.95/month, switching to broadcast basic should be "up to" $18 according to the cablevison website, so adding…"

"You'd need extreme measures to even hope for anything besides RNN and the religious channel here. http://www.tvfool.com/?option=com_wrapper&Itemid=29&q=id%3d81a3d2e1e9de23"

Christopher Wilson replied to Ben Royce's discussion does anyone have fios? in the group Public Discussion Forum
"I don't see how cablevision would have anything to do with a competitor.... it was a Verizon truck installing the lines on my street and a Verizon employee installing my service. *confused*"

Christopher Wilson replied to Ben Royce's discussion does anyone have fios? in the group Public Discussion Forum
"As these clients are on main street, are they in buildings owned by a management company or something? I think they don't offer the service in these types of places without an agreement with the landlord usually, as there is equiptment that…"
