No,  not any more.  Once upon a time they were willing to temporarily change your service address when travelling.   But there "new system" forces the support rep to trigger a true move, not just a temporary location change.  So you'll need to use an off-air antenna when travelling.  Or subscribe to their "Travelers Package" and get the East/West Coast locals.

Snoops? They're a bunch of crooks! Congress hammered them on their locals. Starting June 1, 2020, a new setup will emerge and all the stuff we've put with ends!
