I know this is me being cheap, I will admit that. I purchased a house and we are looking into our cable options. We will be adding high speed internet in the next week or so and would like to have tv. Ideally I would like high def but not sure if thats an option without an actual box.
Have any of you guys used an option for live TV oustide of our local providers and sattelite providers? Feedback?
If this option doesnt exist or its a constant problem, I can bite the bullet and get a box or sattelite, just wanted to make sure I am considering all options. The biggest issue i have with local cable providers is you sign a 2 year contract, you get intro pricing for 6 months and then it bumps up at 7-24 months to a higher price.
OTA works great for HD and it is free
Blow it up and trailer it home!!
Does it work for getting channels that are only with certain providers? Bell dropped HDNet (awesome channel) and there aren't any really viable options for us aside from Bell.

I use one of these Ceton CableCard Tuner Cards in my Windows 7 PC. The downside is I'm still hooked in to my cable provider, the upside is CableCards rent for only $5 per month, and for that $$ my PC becomes a quad-tuner DVR with a capacity limited by the size of my hard drive. Not a bad deal, IMO...
