DTA box?


I'm a customer with the Digital Starter package in Spokane, WA. I have a DTA box on the upstairs TV and have noticed it doesn't get some of the same channels as the digital TV box which is connected to the TV in the basement. A few examples:

Channel 57 (Paramount)
Channel 66 (FXM)
Channel 74 (POP)

Is this to be expected/normal or should I be getting the DTA box checked or upgraded?

That’s normal, DTAs only broadcast up to Digital Starter. You would need to upgrade equipment
