Antenna Help Please
I want to get rid of my cable TV service entirely. I want to simply have local channels and perhaps subscribe to DVD rentals?
My problem is that the only TV antenna's I can relate to are the good old fashioned rabit ears from my era. I went looking on the web and I am so confused with the variety of INDOOR antenna's that are available to purchase.
I have 4yr old TV's in 2 rooms but neither is HDTV. Simply flat screen's. I currently have cable with a splitter connected in the basement. I could drop basic cable and just contract for the cable ariel for local reception. But even that is not cheap by the month and just keeps going up. It seems like I could just purchase an antenna instead?
I sure would appreciate any clarification on the antenna's I could or should purchase. I simply want local reception and the ability to play DVD's in each room.
I live in a suburb where outdoor antenna's are not acceptable. My son suggested an old fashioned house antenna inside the garage rafters connected to each TV via the basement. I am hoping a simple indoor antenna will do the trick?? I live in a suburb of Milwaukee, WI. It has always been nick-named Tinsel Town because of the poor reception with cell phones, CB's etc.
Also, would I need an antenna for each room? My son also tells me they have them in picture frames and/or decorative items these days.
Lastly, I would like to know if an antenna gets connected the same way the cable did? I go back to the old VHS days.
Thank you in advance for your expertise!!
