No cable or satellite necessary

Just saw a TV commercial for something touted as an amazing new device that lets you watch network TV without cable or satellite...

Yeah. So I went to the website, and it turns out this sensational new product is actually an indoor antenna.

Says it works best within 25 miles of a broadcast station.

How many Americans have no clue over-the-air free TV even exists? How many are too young to remember the days to roof-top rigs or "rabbit ears"?

Around here, we watch TV signals captured through a piece of scrap wire bent and shaped and tacked to a piece of wood sitting on our deck. The homemade antenna works just fine.
