After posting my question, I realized that I can livestream WGBH with the PBS app. Since other Boston stations are redundant with Providence, let's focus on getting the Providence/New Bedford stations:
10-1 (25) WJAR (NBC) - 75.8
6-1 (24) WLNE (ABC) - 75.8
64-1 (12) WNAC (FOX) - 74.1
12-1 (7) WPRI (CBS) - 74.2
36-1 (2) WSBE (PBS) - 75.8
and whatever subchannels are transmitted with those stations.

If I understand properly, we're now dealing with only 2 UHF channels and 3 VHF channels, all within 2 of each other.

You will still need a wide antenna if you are going after physical channel 2 in Providence. VHF-Lo band antennas have some big elements. One of the smallest covering all those channels would be the Winegard YA7000C. It is a little over 8 ft wide with the extensions for VHF-Lo and 37" long. If you can get by without that PBS station, then you can use a smaller antenna covering just the UHF and VHF-Hi bands. The YA7000C would be a good one to try, especially if you purchase from somewhere that accepts returns just in case it does not have enough gain for your location.
