[QUOTE=cholla;2679929]Basically your OTA is the local stations available in your area .
I suspect your TV has a digital tuner but if it doesn’t the converter boxes work.
My computer room TV is a CRT with an analog tuner & converter box. It works with just a set of old rabbit ears. The converter box is an RCA .It is better than the Artec or Dish (TR40) I also tried.
For my main TV a 46" Sharp Aquos which has a digital tuner .As do the Magnavox DVR s I have connected to it. So it can receive OTA from either.
I do have a good amplified indoor antenna connected to it.
I recommend this model:
It works well for me anyway . The local channels that come in on the Dish satellite receiver are SD. The OTA are HD so I usually receive them OTA.
I have Dish satellite instead of Direct over all I’m satisfied with it.
Right now it is $44.21 total per month.
I don’t have their internet but I believe bundled it would be $50.00 extra per month.[/QUOTE]
Thanks Cholla. Yeah see, we would need internet with it as well and so far all the services that we’ve looked at which offer both, want to charge us all about the same price and it’s just getting too expensive. I tried to tell my parents to just drop TV all together and just buy internet, but they want to be able to watch football, basketball and the local stations.
