Can a dual band 2m/440 base antenna also handle HDTV?

I live in a dense urban area on the north side of Chicago where HDTV can be challenging to receive with indoor antennas, despite being only 3 miles from a transmitting antenna on the 96th floor of a building. I get a fair amount of pixelation and dropouts, even with a powered indoor antenna on the second floor.

I’m speccing out putting a dual band antenna on a roof chimney (appx 30ft above grade) and wondering if this would outperform my powered indoor HDTV antenna?

Plan would be to use a duplexer to branch off the feed for the TV’s and protect them from the transmission feed.
