Can you pick up ABC on an OTA antenna in Clemson. I have not tailgated in two years and don't feel like dragging out the dish. Anyone know?

Just one of those flat indoor types - I was going to attach to tent pole maybe 8-10 feet. I figured it was worth a shot, but ABC signal is listed as "weak" in Clemson.

I can pick it up at my house near Pickens, but it goes off around 7:45pm. Also, when it rains or when a plane flies over.

Depends on your line of site and the quality of your antenna.

When I tailgated at clemson house I was able to use a $20 antenna and could pick up all the locals.

When they moved me down into the bottom lands I couldn't get any.

You won't know until you try.. ...and then try different more expensive antennas.

That makes sense. We are on Shot Gun Alley (Nu Street), it is pretty open there, not am not even sure which direction ABC broadcasts from. The Clemson House area would be good.

Probably not. I have a farm 15 miles SE of Clemson and have never been able to pick up ABC with a huge antenna with rotor. I’ve tried using a small one at our tailgates and have been unable to pick it up. Signal is too weak.

WLOS OTA signal is terrible to non existent in the upstate. GSP area is large enough for their own ABC affiliate in the upstate if WLOS can't get it done.

Disappointed I let my ABC membership lapse until I read entire post***

You can stream it through free TV online. Their are several local apps that will allow you to stream the local free channels. Theirs an App called Local Now & if you want lots of free channels look up Pluto, Tubi, IMOb tv etc...

I have friends who spent the $500 for Starlink & it will work anywhere, you can take it with you anywhere. Most are saying it’s as fast as anything they have ever had besides the 5g landlines.

The Beta test is out now but everyone I know loves it. Go to YouTube & search how Starlink is working. Their are some great reviews, it would work in Clemson just fine too.

I didn’t realize you couldn’t stream via hotspot on your phone in Clemson. I have At&t IPhone & it works good in Clemson most of the time.

You also can do the free 2 weeks from YouTube or Hulu and cancel before it starts to charge you....

HULU works great with an HDMI adapter for your phone. Way

faster and easier than dealing with a dish and a box. The stream is probably 30 seconds behind the dish, but other than that it works great.

Reception is weak and lots of interference. Drag out the dish.

unfortunately, not a lot of Over the Air options in Clemson***

I planning on trying the antenna - it is a Clearstream Flex says 50 plus miles and it looks like Asheville is 70 miles..so...it is a stretch.. If not hopefully pick up some other games before kickoff on better channels.

I think I can stream thru the local app as mentioned, but need my iPhone for mobile tickets, and we may have some tailgaters without tickets.

Thanks for the info

Update if curious .....

The antenna was pretty worthless. Might have been location, trees or elevation, but I could only pick up a hand full of stations. NBC was the only major network and that was spotty. Nothing at all from ch 13 WLOS ABC.

The streaming worked very well, had no problem with bandwidth or lag. I used the DirecTV app. I thought it no longer worked off the iPhone, but it is did. I did start the app on the iPhone, got it streaming and then plugged the lightning to HDMI adapter from the TV in to the iPhone. Not sure if that made a difference or not.

Thanks for the advice.
