I use it, and enjoy it.
On most channels you can see 3 days of past programming, and skip commercials.

Actually, it's just the opposite.

Any old analog antenna will pick up digital broadcast signals.

I have a homemade outdoor "digital" antenna on a 20' pole. I built it for less than $10, not including the pole, which is just 2 galvanized chain link fence top rails stuck together.

Works great. I get every available broadcast channel in my area.

Haven't paid a dime to watch TV since 2003.



Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

Who is your internet provider and do they have cable tv also?


You could use it in conjunction with an antenna & run them thru a switcher box.

Probably be a pain to switch your TV's signal source setting back & forth every time you went between one & the other.

LOL


My guess is that $20 flat rate will start slowly going up & up until in about 5 years or so, you're paying them $40 - $50 a month.

I figured that as much, not to mention they are already nickle-and-dimeing you to add extra channels such as HBO. No thanks, I'm set for life. LOL
