Should be 164, in the Entertainment section (right between TPIR at 163 and DoND at 165). Although it looks like, if you're actually going through the LG Channels app, it may be in a different location.

Why do you need Pluto to view Buzzr? Shouldn’t it be available over your air?

It's only available over the air in a couple dozen cities.

To be fair, not everyone has an antenna (and given that he's using Pluto he likely doesn't have cable either).

Ah, thanks for that. I've seen his other tech support posts on here before but I must have missed that one.

Digital subchannels count.

This. For example, we don't have a Seattle affiliate. I trick my DVR into thinking the Internet feed is a normal cable channel.

(Yes, including digital subchannels.)

And to add on to this some cities are listed as having affiliates but they're only available on some very, very low-power stations and are all but impossible to get a good signal for.

I've only gotten the Pittsburgh station twice...and it was an overcast day, even though the station is like 5 miles from me.

I live in Carnegie, right outside of downtown Pittsburgh, at the top of a very long steep hill.  I have a clear view of downtown and even with powered antennas I cannot get Buzzr.  Blah.  Also hi, neighbor.

This right here is The Way. I run Channels DVR server on an old PC. One of the sources for the DVR is a free Sling login, which includes Buzzr and a handful of other free streaming channels. Works like a champ, although the timing is off sometimes.

The Harrisburg, PA market does not have OTA Buzzr. There is a lot of OTA activity in our market of late, with WGAL gaining a few new subchannels and some low-power signals spread throughout, but no one carries Buzzr.

I live within the very outer bands of theoretical reception for WTXF out of Philadelphia, but have never been able to receive them OTA.
