    So I am one of the unfortunate Dish customers in eastern WA who cannot get Fox until the parties involved pull their heads out. That means no Seahawks game this weekend, and as far as I know we cannot get antennae reception in Pullman. Any suggestions on how to watch the game? Can we get it on the internet some how?

    The ironic thing is that we dropped Directv in the fall because they were fighting with Fox, so we switched to Dish to get the Seahawks and the Pac12 network.

    You could come over to my place in Moscow and listen to my neighbors scream and carry on. You still wouldn't see the game, but you'd have a pretty decent idea of what was happening...

    I use a bar at times and other times I watch it streaming on-line. Most times I don't watch at all but this is playoff time.

    Go buy a pair of digital rabbit ears. They cost about $20. About 5 years ago the government required the networks switch over to digital broadcasts making the picture for networks "free TV" in HD. It comes in better than Dish or Direct HD here in Tri.

    Don't go hook up the old antenna on the roof it's not digital.

    I called Dish last week and complained and they gave me 1 month of NFL Redzone for free. It only gave us pieces of the game but it, along with the radio was what I used. Very disgusted with this but it seems like Direct has issues as well.

    If you get cable internet, buy a splitter and run the other cable into your TV and you should get the basic channels plus a few random ones (just make sure and do a search on your tv for new stations). That's how I do it. If that doesn't work try this site: http://www.vipbox.tv/sports/american-football.html

    Enjoy. GO HAWKS!!

    I suggest sticking your fingers in your ears while yelling "petecarrollisagodevenifallhisplayercheat" over and over.

    I don't dare to watch, going in for my heart procedure in a week to see if I need a stent or bypass. If I watch might not need either one LMAO nervously

    Football. What a waste of time. After all those College bowls, I'm sick of football.

    But my being here in a third world country(Montana), I can never get their games. All I get to watch is Denver

    The old antenna on the roof can still pull in digital channels if the signal is strong enough. It doesn't have to be a "digital" antenna. Cable is not available were I live and I don't think the cost of a dish or cable is worth the money given the content so I just use the old antenna on the roof. I did add a second high power, strictly digital antenna a year or two ago but it only pulled a few more channels most of which are either 24hr religion or broadcast in spanish. I wish I understood spanish because the programing looks every bit as good as most of the english speaking broadcasts.

    Aiming the antenna is critical to reception. A few degrees one way or the other can make a huge difference in both quality and quantity of received channels.

    There is only one way to watch football games, college or pro.

    With a cold beer in hand.

    I'm not really a beer drinker. So that leaves me out.

    My digital rabbit ears sit on the floor behind my TV and brings in Hd quality Fox, ABC, NBC and CBS. It also picks up SWX a regional sports network for Ams vs Chiefs games, high school games, Central football games , etc...It also gets a couple of religous channels and 3 PBS channels as well as a spanish channel beside the PBS in spanish.

    It's a no brainer. We have the exact same set up at the golf course. Digital rabbit ears. RCA $14.99 at Fred Meyers.
