|Winegard FlatWave indoor TV antenna|
Last night I realize I am watching TV as it began...free on the air waves. The use of the Winegard FlatWave Indoor Amplified HDTV antenna* is easy to set up once you find the right spot to hang it. Wouldn't you know, taped to an in progress dry painting is where mine gets the best reception.
It gets better. I can see the entire screen with a clarity that I didn't know it has! With cable, many of the shows are in the center with black on each side. Cable also cut off a portion of the edge of the image. The only way the image fills the television screen is when I select an Aspect that fills it in; and then even more of the image can be lost into the edges. Clarity, the sharpness with the indoor antenna compared to the cable is a foggy day versus clear skies. Maybe my TV didn't have the connection for high definition (HD)? The antenna does what the cable didn't.
Overall, I'd rather have cable with the correct connections to watch television in HD. The costs are too high for the packages offered. Most of the shows I watch are available online. If the WiFi stops disconnecting on my laptop, then my viewing will be better.
Do you have cable?

Update on day 3...I miss most the program guide, and some familiar faces/shows. Thank goodness the Create channel is seen with an antenna.
