Well with using just off-air antenna, I have yet not to have channels, unless I don't have elecrticity. I'm so much happier not having a TV service provider and feel that my quality of life is so much better.
Really, with an off-air antenna and the internet, who needs a TV service provider? Maybe I'm missing something here?
I look at as those who still pay a TV service provider are similar to those tied down to paying the oil man for fuel. There are other more economical and better ways to heat, just as there are other alternative ways to recieving TV channels.
Just look at the membership growing on this forum, we all must not be crazy? Maybe we are the sane ones and everyone else is crazy?
But on a serious note, going off-air for TV with a digital receiver is a woderful technological development. Watching TV off-air with today's new set up is nothing like it was in the past. After viewing it, you would swear it was a TV service provider, until you compare the two and realize that the off-air picture is just as good or better.

They really helped me out get the set up I have and recommend checking them out. Spend some time there and it will get you thinking about going off-air too. They also have a lot of new cool tech gagets.
