Re: New addition to System

I would love to get rid of my cable but I need high speed internet for work and I like FSN and Verses for Pen's hockey.
Some cool Carver stuff!

Yes, high speed internet would be an added bonus for sure, still using land line DSL.

Re: New addition to System

I think I'd go out and put up an antenna is my cable, high speed internet and phone weren't all bundled together. You can even get HD stations over the air, and I understand the quality is better than over cable because they have more bandwidth to play with.

Re: New addition to System

For those of us who are fortunate to live in the areas with good number of channels, OTA HD is quite amazing. My parents pick up over 30 channels, most of those are in HD (720p/1080i image with 5.1 sound). The picture quality is better than cable/satellite due to lower compression.

People on the other end of town are able to pick up another receiver in addition to 3 that we pick up, so they have like 40 free channels.
