Some people think you need a cable or satellite hookup to get MeTV, but all that's required is a digital antenna.
Just did a webs search on digital antennae and and almost had to laugh. No, not at you, rather, the hardware. Though I'm sure the electronics are a bit more sophisticated, visually, it looks like we've come full circle. A low cost unit from RCA looks like a "classic" pair of "rabbit ears" and UHF "loop"!
