I lived in Austin, Texas, in the late 1950s and there was one TV
station (VHF) which was an affiliate of all three networks and had a
patchwork of various network programs. This station was owned by the
LBJ company. A few people had tall antennas to pick up the San Antonio
stations (difficult) or the Waco and Temple stations (not as
difficult). (The Temple station had its transmitter in Eddy, Texas.)
