Since June 12, 2009, all over-the-air TV broadcasts are broadcasting in digital.  HDTV broadcast quality is often superior to the quality of the same HD programs received through cable. Not only is the quality better than cable, over the air HDTV is free.

Find available local channels in your area.  If there are channels available in your area, hook up an antenna to your TV.  Antennas today can be small and can be hidden from view.

Check the reception maps for available local channels in your area by zipcode.

HDTV antennas can be found ~$30-100+ price range.
