I live in South San Jose; recently we have discovered that now that we have fast Internet, WII and Netflix, we already have access to hundreds of movies, so what do we need a tv for? Local news. Okay, but they are being broadcast for free, in hdtv, just install an antenna on the roof and go.
Started with looking up our area on antennaweb: entered my address and it gave me directions and this map.
The site also say that frequency ranges have colors, and that I have to choose an antenna that has the right colors.
Since there's over 60 miles from my home to San Francisco, the only reasonable choice was ChannelMaster 4228D - they sell it at Fry's.
So all I had to do is connect my tv, scan the 56 channel it found and enjoy the show.
And you know what? It sucks. I don't have a dvr on those channels, so there's no way I can pause it, or get any information regarding what is it about... no recording. And the channels... what nonsense people watch, omg.
So, was it all worth it? Probably. I had fun with my antenna.
Here's a photo I took from a digital channel:
When I find something interesting and new, I post it here - that's mostly programming, of course, not everything.
