Indoor Antenna

goldyOctober 19, 2011

I'm going to have to cut expenses somewhere .The cable bill is too high and most of the stuff they show is garbage.I am just now hearing about inside antennas.Do they work? can I apply it myself?I'm old and my eyesight is not too good.Do I still have to have the cable company to install it.I can get the man downstairs to help if it's worth my while.Can I get some feedback from someone who has it or knows someone who does?

What you are hearing about is OTA (over the air), or terrestrial broadcast television, which is what people have watched since the 1950's.

However, it now looks much better than before, and offers more channel options.

Whether you require an indoor or outdoor antenna is based upon your location from the television transmitter sites and the surrounding terrain.

No, a cable company will not hook you up - that's their competition.

As long as you have a television with a DTV (digital television) ATSC tuner, or a DTV ATSC converter box, you will receive all the local and locally available network programming over the air at no charge.
