Sorry first time I've posted on here and switched up the subject with the question lol

I moved in to my house a couple years ago and was able to receive 2 cbs stations 2 ABC and 1 NBC along with 4 pbs and 3 fox. Within the first year the CBS would no longer come in and now the ABC and nbc no longer come in and the search doesn't find them. Really killing my sports

Couple of possibilities off the top of my head..
1) Google your local stations to confirm they aren't having issues with their over the air broadcasts (unlikely).
2) confirm there is not an amplifier on the line that may have crapped out. No amp is better than a dead amp.

Where would the amplifier be? Is it something that would be in the attic?

Gradually losing channels would probably tell me that obstructions are now present that weren't there two years ago.

I'd probably start with Antennaweb.org and see what channels you should be getting. Are the channels you've lost still listed for your zip code?

P.S. No need to enter your actual address. Just enter a zip code and then move the blue/white location dot close to your actual location on the map.

I've verified from neighbors that the channels have stayed the same.

What would the obstruction consist of ...exterior trees and that sort of thing?

Pretty much. Trees and new construction are the most obvious types of obstructions, but if the neighbors are not experiencing the issue (and they're close by), then the issue is likely more local as jsmithepa suggests.
