Someone wrote: “If you don’t transmit ABC, NBC, and CBS live programs, how do I get the programs?” You can get them live just by putting up a TV antenna and connecting it to a converter box or to most newer flat screen TVs. After connecting the antenna to the TV’s coax (antenna) input, go into the TV’s menu and have it do a channel search. Most channels you will get will be through the DTV (digital TV) part of the scan. I have a large outdoor antenna that pulls in over 40 channels and I live 60 miles from the city. If one lives in a town with transmission towers then an indoor or attic antenna will pull in many channels. The channels you pick up will be digital channels but you don’t need a so called digital antenna. Any TV antenna will pull them to a certain extent but the farther away you are from a transmitter the larger the antenna you need. You can even buy a OTA (over the air) DVR and record the programs for future viewing.
