Mel and I have been feeling like a couple of suckers for the past few years because we pay Comcast $15 each month for the basic cable package. That’s the package that gets us about 7 channels that are worth anything: ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, TBS, and a couple others we watch just because we’re bored. Most of these channels, you’re supposed to be able to get over-the-air for free in HD.
So we went to Target, and bought a $40 HD antenna, and plugged it in to see what we’d get:.
NOTHING. We got NOTHING..
Ok, fine, we sort of got ABC, but it kept shorting out on us, and wasn’t anywhere near a picture quality we would be happy with..
Oh, Great Internet – what are we doing wrong here? Do we just need a better antenna? (before you ask, yes, I’m like 70% sure our TV has a built-in digital tuner)..
P.S. – have y’all seen those commercials for the Amish-made movable fireplace things? Mel and I may be suckers for paying Comcast for basic cable, but at least we’re not buying THOSE things…
