Saw where people are concerned if FOX pulls the plug, no Bucs game on Sunday-plus a bunch of bowl games.

All one has to do is disconnect the cable connection and use rabbit ears or stick a coat hanger in there.

FOX is free because its a broadcast station. Now their cable channels is a different story.

Digital rabbit ears...   Analog is gone, gone, gone.

No rabbit ears anymore. You must have a digital converter box now.

I thought it was illegal for any broadcast company to terminate local news/broadcast channels because I thought they use those for emergency stations in case of something were to happen.

Many do, if you want cable.

Some places dishes aren't allowed.

FIOS is not available everywhere, nor is Comcast.

The info I mentioned above (rabbit ears etc) came from 1010 this morning as some were discussing it.

You can plug any old UHF antenna into a new flat screen and get the FOX HD signal for free.

They're pulling the plug on other Fox stations like Fuel, FX, some of the other major fox news station. The local one will stay.

Hopefully Fox News Channel will be pulled - if I never see O'Reilly and Hannity TV again, I couldn't be happier.

The final Buc loss will still be shown in sportsbars on the NFL ticket, I presume.

Who is it that forces you to watch a TV channel you don't want to watch?
