Best Places to Buy an Over The Air Antenna

A lot of people that I talk to still don’t realize that you can get free television by installing an over the air antenna. Many people can receive up to 50 or more channels, depending on how close you are to the broadcast towers. All the major stations are available like ABC, NBC, CBS, PBS, FOX, and CW.

Then you have the best of both worlds. So why not make the switch today? If you are in the market for an over the air antenna then let’s take a look at the best places to buy one.

  1. A friend lent me an HD antenna and I temporarily mounted it on a piece of pipe given to me by a neighbor. The antenna is only 10 feet above ground. Not very high but good enough for a trial run. I picked up ten channels to my north and 5 channels to my south. Those stations all came in rock solid. There were another couple of stations that wanted to come in but were very badly pixelated. With digital it’s all or nothing. When I was a boy back in the 1950’s and 60’s we had an old analog TV and YAGII antenna. The image would come and go and sometimes be quite noisy. What a difference. This is living in this age in Victoria BC. I still like cable but what I like about it is the set top box we use to record programs and play back later. With an OTA recorder I would guess we would be fine, that and the vast amount of other station material we can acquire off the internet. Thanks for all the suggestions and material provided on this site.

    • You are right with digital TV, it is pretty much all or nothing. There are a lot more options for watching TV today. Glad you are enjoying free OTA TV and find our site helpful. Thanks!
