There are actually more than a dozen over-the-air channels that you can get for free with a digital TV antenna. This is a development or an upgrade of the rabbit-ear antennas you remember growing up but with the added bonus that they can pick up 1080p HD broadcasts.

Unfortunately, the fact that TVs can receive these channels is a fact that has largely been obscured by cable companies that are all-too-eager to sign you up for an expensive cable plan.
