these work fantastic
I would recommend a leaf antenna. They take up barely any space at all.
I use this antenna and I get channels just fine.
Over here we have Netflix, Amazon (used Prime for shipping long before Video was added to it,) and a $40 indoors OTA antenna with a $180 box. It already paid for itself in savings over the cable subscription.
Plex has a DVR solution for OTA in beta right now which works great, and doesn't have fees for program guides. The only missing piece is post-processing to cut out commercials.
I have two of the Mohu Leaf antennas which are well reviewed. (http://www.amazon.com/Mohu-Leaf-Paper-Thin-Indoor-Antenna/dp/B00HSMK580)
They work great except in the heavier rains. i have no problem with all the major stations except 12.1 seems to be a little tricky.
One more thing the article didn't touch on. If you live close to a city you can most likely get an antenna for one month's worth of cable. That will give you access to the national channels / local programming. It's not much, but it's entirely free after you pay for the antenna.
Two very popular antennas are the MOHU Leaf and the Terk Indoor antenna
To see where the towers are in your area - you can look at antenna web - I am sure there are other sites, even better ones.
EDIT: If you don't want to spend the money on the antenna and want a little weekend project; you can make your own antenna. Google coat hanger antenna or something or try something like this
They make HD antennas, you can probably pick one up at Best Buy. I'd recommend the Mohu Leaf if they have it - https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00HSMK580/ref=mp_s_a_1_2?ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1479939588&amp;sr=8-2&amp;pi=SY200_QL40&amp;keywords=mohu+leaf&amp;dpPl=1&amp;dpID=21YBKew-5-L&amp;ref=plSrch
I'm coming back here to recommend something. Based on other replies here, I went out and bought the Mohu Leaf tv antenna, and I am now getting basic "cable" for free. PBS, ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, a few local channels, a few spanish channels, and a couple more that I'll probably never watch. As long as the sports you want to watch are on network tv, you'll be fine. If it's on ESPN you may have to go to a bar. I live on the second floor of a 3 family house in Somerville and am getting all those channels in HD - I honestly can't tell the difference between the satellite and cable quality. I've got it pinned up to the wall behind my tv, so it's even "out of sight, out of mind".
Highly recommended if you don't need expanded cable.
PSA: for my fellow poors without cable who want to watch NBC, ABC, FOX, and some other local channels, buy an antenna. Stick it in your window, works great. TMFMS
It's got great reviews.
I use a Leaf and get decent reception in Bridgeville. (about 10 miles from downtown, as the crow flies)
I enjoy my $20 Nohu Leaf. I live in south Aurora though so depending on how far out you are you may want the $40 model though. Also I've never compared with anyone but I seem to get a fair number of channels (maybe 6 good channels) but the HD is excellent.
It's indispensable for live sports in my house. College football, playoffs, etc. But that's about all I use it for.
Depending on how far you are from your local broadcast towers and what the terrain is like, you could potentially get by with a little cheapie like this or even this.
I have a Mohu and an Amazon brand that looks identical to it. Both work alright, but our property is very wooded, so I upgraded to a big 15 foot antenna in the attic to make sure I get uninterrupted signal.
Just one note, if you have direct line of sight, you can get by with a little antenna. If you don't have direct LOS, no amount of amplification will help you, so don't waste your money. Only spend money on an amplified antenna if you have near direct LOS, but are a good distance away from the tower.
$40 amplified antenna
$40 Amazon FireTV Stick
The antenna will give you free local channels
FireTV can give you streaming channels + apps for streaming from channels if you have someone generous enough to provide their cable/satellite login. So we have live streaming of Fox Sports, ESPN, CNN and some more.
and Kodi for every TV Show/Movie. There's add-ons for live tv that's hit or miss but definitely improving
Right on the Vue page it lists what local channels are available. Same with Sling and it's not many
Edit: I don't get your point of trying to cut cords if you're still subscribing to every streaming service available? At that point wouldn't satellite be cheaper?
I got the Mohu Leaf indoor HDTV antenna for $40 on Amazon (link). It picks up crisp 1080p digital tv with the basic channels. I use it mainly to watch the main network channels (FOX, ABC, CBS, etc.) so I usually stick to the 1-13 channels. It does have some other ones, but nothing to note. I paid the $40 one time cost so I could cut the cord, but still watch all the football games. Simple, cheap, and hassle free.
Cutting the cable cord, getting this antenna, plus an apple tv was easily one of the best decisions I've made as a consumer.
This is a great OTA antenna - Mohu - I use it in Southpark and get 20ish channels. All the major networks come in great.
The law that required broadcasters move to digital in 2009 also required over-the-air transmissions to include both standard definition and high-definition transmissions. Hence the number of products on the market in recent years billing themselves as "HDTV Antenna". I'm unsure whether a specialized antenna is required to pick-up hd over antenna, or whether you could simply construct your own antenna.
/r/cordcutting is a good stop for more ideas.
I've found this guy works pretty well but it depends on how far away you are from the tower.
