CJM,

Just the opposite here. In Taunton, MA and wish Verizon would provide MA Fox programming. MA resident interested in MA news not RI.

TK421 - WNAC (Fox Providence) exercised their FCC rights and kept WFXT (Fox Boston) from being shown in their market - Providence, which technically includes Taunton. There's nothing Verizon can do about this.

I've wished for that same thing, but I somehow don't think it will happen. I don't think very many people in that part of Massachusetts care about Rhode Island. Is there any particular reason why you WANT them?

Did you try using an OTA antenna?  I'm farther North than you and I pick up the Providence channels with no issues with an antenna that's standing on the ground on my front porch.  The antenna is directional so I need to rotate it when switching between RI, MA and NH channels.

  One of our friends in Fitchburg had success with an OTA antenna too.
