If you don't need 100 channels, but just the basics (ABC, CBS, FOX, etc) Get some bunny-ears, hook it up to that HDTV and you'll be amazed! Uncompressed, amazing, pixel perfect video!
I'm thinking about doing this. Exactly which channels do you get? Just ABC, CBS, Fox and NBC?

ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, PBS/ETV, CW21

But the networks have substations (13, 13-2, 13-2, etc). Inside of these are whole new stations like "Bounce", or "MyTV", "Next". They usually show old/random movies and tv shows.

Over the air HD, plus Netflix streaming or Hulu, you can watch just about everything that cable-paying suckers watch.

Friends still can't believe they're watching "the game" in HD for free! I haven't paid for cable in about 7 years.

I have Netflix, Hulu Plus and Amazon Video so that covers most TV shows, old and new. Most of the time when I watch tv it is actually just to waste time and have background noise so I'll turn to some trashy reality tv or a ball game.

I have a internet TV and an xbox 360 with live so I could probably rent anything that I really wanted to see pretty quickly.

I've been considering cutting the tv off for a while. I only need internet from Charter, which I find to be relatively reliable considering we have two kindle fires, a laptop, cell phones, the Wifi TV and the xbox 360 all hooked up to. I have never had a home phone and see no point in it.

Thanks.

We used to watch Clemson and other basketball games on ESPN 360 during class. The teacher could always tell when class was during a game haha.

I could use my Xbox 360 to watch a lot of ESPN so that is covered and they stream a lot of CBS sports online.

I like Antenna TV on WJZY 46.2 out of Charlotte. Classic old TV sitcoms and movies - All in the Family, Three's Company, Good Times, Sanford, WKRP, Maude and more. Also Bounce TV on WBTV 3.2 is another option, and MeTV on WSPA 7.2 has more classic shows. A good antenna set up will get you several Charlotte channels, as well as GSP-AVL.
