Alright, so the final nail is in the coffin I think, I keep coming back to the same decision about whether or not to cancel my satellite TV.
It's not out of disgust with the service or because my plan sucks, it's just that I can think of better ways to spend my $73 a month (Two DVRs in the house, along with the associated fees).
But the problem that I have is that I live in an area where HDTV signals are going to be difficult to receive. I live in a bowl shaped valley area in a heavily wooded area. Rabbit ears made for HDTV have done nothing for me, so I need to know, before I really look at this option, what I can do to drop satellite completely.
I will not do cable, the idea here is to eliminate the bill completely, not merely switch providers, even if for a lower cost. I want to stop paying for TV period.
The other problem I have is that if I cancel the satellite, I don't have any way to get my local channels (Satellite firstly, HDTV reception secondly) which is important for others in the house due to weather in Colorado, etc.
So, does anyone have any experience with HDTV in these conditions and can recommend a good antenna that won't cost me 6 months of satellite TV?
