I am looking for a person/company who can install an antenna in an attic and connect to one TV. I also am looking for the best company/rates on internet service ONLY. Any recommendations?

I have decided not to have cable at my new residence. Most of the programs I watch are on ABC, NBC or CBS, and I hate paying so much money for cable service when I only watch one cable channel!

Check the bulletin board at "Fry's Electronics" inside the store, not sure if other mega electronic stores allow that. A lot of handy people advertize their services there. Also the greensheet has lots of ads for internet services only.

I think I'd go with DSL with your local phone company if I were you...have you checked into that yet?

Keep in mind that by 2009 all analog TV will be gone, so will this antenna be a waste in a very short time?

Oh good thought. I had forgotten about that. Thank you. I don't have a local phone line...

Half of what hypocore said is incorrect. Yes, analog TV will be going away in 2009. But antennas used to get current analog TV signals can also be used to fetch digital signals. Therefore, an antenna someone gets today will be good indefinitely.

Thread starter, call local electricians and ask them for a free quote. I hired an electrician to run a cable line to another bedroom that my satellite installer refused to do.

That's why I put it as a question....it wasn't something to which I knew the answer and thought it worth asking before committing to that particular choice. It's not that I was incorrect....was simply asking a question. But thanks for answering it anyway. :-)

OK, no problem. I just wanted to make sure the thread starter knew the facts.

Speaking of antenna business, for anyone interested, go to AntennaWeb to see how far your home is from the local transmitters and what kind of antenna you'd need to pull in digital channels.
