    Cut cable many years back. You can get an antenna for the window that lets you get a lot of local channels. Depending on location, you can get more or less channels. You just have to play with placement. We have Netflix, and amazon prime. We had Hulu but didn’t use it enough, so I canceled it. We had slingTV for a while too, but canceled that. It’s a good one that is non-subscription so cancel and reinstate at any time.

    It’s worth saying that the over the air channels you will get depends on where you live, and where the signals are being broadcast from. If you live in the city you will probably get tons of channels, if you live in a rural area, you won’t get as many channels. There are websites that will tell you the locations of broadcast towers, to help you point the antenna in the best direction. There are also different ranges for the antennas. Some are 20 miles, others are 70 or 100 miles. That mileage refers to how far a way a tower can be, and still get a signal.

    I agree that it is confusing and a lot to take on, I was never able to figure all of it out. My wife and I tried, but we still have to have the internet, which means the bill is not $0.
