Well we have cable at home and no computers so we'll stick with cable. What happyflowerlady said makes sense if you're in the right locale for the antenna to connect to. I was watching the commercials for the new antennas and it's so simple, slim and seems to work. We don't have a choice yet for we don't have computers of any kind at home and the prices of cable does climb all the time. I asked them if they had Senior Citizen discounts, they apologized and said no. The cable company is always ready to help in any repairs. I get to get on demand on the library computers too which works most of the time. I asked customer service about it and they said it's totally free to do so and is a perk for using cable. I like to watch NCIS and we are big fans of NCIS in Hawaii!
