I want to get rid of cable because it costs too much.

Quick question about TV tuners?
I want to get rid of cable because it costs too much. Could I use a TV tuner with an antenna to receive the very basic channels? I want to get hulu plus and netflix along with the tuner. For the tuner, I just want to receive the local news channels. Do you have any reccomendations on which TV tuner would suffice? Thanks.

First you need to see what channels are available with the different size antennas.

Type your address into www.antennaweb.org and it will tell you what you can pick up.

Now – do you have a recent television – made within the last 5 years? If so – you can hook up a antenna and have it scan for channels. If you have a HD Ready television – you need an external tuner.
