.......or Hedonist with Inhibitions
I haven't watched broadcast TV for the last 20 years, so I'm out of touch - but I thought I read that 3 or 4 years ago, they stopped broadcasting TV channels, it all comes by cable or satellite now, no?
We have no satellite or cable - we get about 30 channels over the air via the old fashioned roof antenna. I think you need to be within 60 miles of a broadcast tower to pick up a signal.The newer TV's get digital broadcast signals or you can get a "box" for older TV's - (the Feds were handing out coupons for the box a number of years ago) to receive digital signals. Most stations have 3 or 4 channels (e.g. the local public TV station has 3 channels with different programming simultaneously. We supplemented our antenna TV with TiVo so we can record programs and also have Netflix, YouTube and some other internet stuff via AppleTV or Roku.
