TV - Antenna is the Search the List category for this service.

My recommendation - if not WAYYYY out in the boonies, just in fringe reception area, the new decktop antenna boosters (which use the signal from the TV antennas like rabbit ears) or stand-alone digital antennas by Motorola, Sony and other work quite well - then the changeover from analog to digital was going on - what, about 10 years go now - I tested (and kept) one and found that it took out all the snow and static on the "decent" stations plus pulled in two more not normally ever seen (sometimes heard through the snow) in our area - and when the switch to digital occurred all the stations came in clear.

Run about $20-70 - might be worth a try before paying to have an antenna put up and cable run to the TV (or maybe several TV's).

Of course, if you have friends or neighbors in the immediate area who use over-the-air TV, you could ask what their experience was too.
