I bought an over-the-air (OTA) digital TV receiver about a month ago. Since the signals are directional and I live between transmitter sites, I have to move my rabbit ears antenna to receive all of the stations in my area. The difference from the old days before cable is that the payoff is better, since DTV reception is crystal clear. Bottom line: it looks better than my analog cable signal and it's free!
