Streaming, whether it’s shows and movies or music, is one of the things that can use up a lot of data. If you’re a big fan of video streaming sites like Netflix, you’re using about 3 GB of data per hour. If you decide to stream your shows and movies in SD, you’ll only be using around 1 GB of data per hour. Streaming music on apps like Spotify or Apple Music uses a lot less data than streaming movies. Spotify uses about 1 GB per 7 hours of streaming music. So even if you cut the cord on cable, you will still need internet service to stream your content. The upside is you get the content your interested in rather than a bunch of channels tou are paying for in your subscription price that you will never watch. The down side is after paying for the right internet service and your selected tv provider. You are close to the dreaded cost of cable that you had and the monthly rate you disliked in the first place.

Now cutting off the paid tv services will save you lots of money and if you are not a gamer and just a basic computer user like emails, browsing, blogging, and Facebooking. You only need about 1 GB to send and/or receive 1,000 emails. You can surf the web for 20 hours and use just 1 GB of data. Now comes the hard part like what type of Antenna do I use. There are many factors involved on receiving over the air tv. The number of channels you receive will depend on your location and environment, as well as the placement of the antenna in your home. You may need to try several models before finding the best antenna for your needs. That’s why we strongly recommend purchasing from a retailer with a no-hassle return policy. Also, it’s a good idea to regularly rescan for channels, because you might have missed some the last time you scanned. Once you have your antenna set up correctly, the quality of the stations you receive may be better than it was with old analog TV broadcasts and maybe even better than cable. If you live near a major TV market, there’s a good chance you can receive many local networks, such as ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC, PBS, and Telemundo.
Outdoor antennas, especially those on a roof or mast, generally offer the best performance, particularly if you’re many miles from the nearest broadcast towers. But an indoor HDTV antenna is easier to set up, and for some people it’s the only practical option.
Getting great reception from an indoor antenna can be a mix of science and art, though. Here’s what you need to do.
Reception depended mainly on distance from broadcast towers, the terrain, and details of the surroundings, such as houses, buildings, trees, and so on. Some models worked better than others, but it was hard to predict which antenna would perform best in any particular location.
A number of models are directional, so they need to be oriented toward broadcast towers. Multidirectional antennas, which receive signals from all directions, might be better for urban locations, but they might not pull in the more distant stations a properly positioned directional antenna could.
There seems to be little correlation between price and performance; often the cheaper antennas did as well as, or better than, the more expensive models.
Try a few different antennas to see which one works best. To do that, you need to buy from a retailer that offers a no-hassle return policy and reasonable warranty.
The height of your antenna is among the most critical factors in getting decent reception; that’s one reason roof-mounted antennas typically outperform indoor models. It’s also why you probably won’t get good reception using an antenna placed in your basement.
If possible, place your indoor TV antenna in an attic or second-story location, preferably by a window. Sometimes objects in the room or roofing materials will interfere with the signals, so it pays to try a few different attic locations. Of course, having the antenna in one room and the TV in another requires running a cable through your home, because the antenna needs to be connected to the antenna (RF) input on your set.
In reality, most people will place the antenna in the same room as the TV. So try a few higher locations in the room, such as along the wall near the ceiling. Some of the newer flat antennas, such as the Mohu Leaf, can be painted, allowing them to blend in with the décor.
Most antennas are directional (these are also called "unidirectional" antennas), which means they need to be oriented toward a broadcast tower.
To find out where the local broadcast towers are in your area, visit the FCC’s DTV antenna map, then click on the station’s call letters to see where the signals are coming from. You’ll also be able to determine how many stations you should be able to pull in and their relative signal strength. (You can also get useful advice and information, including tips on outdoor antennas, from antennaweb.org and TVFool.com.)
Once you know where the towers are, you can point the antenna in that direction. If you live in the suburbs of a big city, all the major broadcast towers may lie in the same direction, but you may need to reorient the antenna for different stations. As noted above, a multidirectional antenna doesn’t need to be aimed but may be less able to pick up signals from distant towers that a directional antenna could receive.
When you’re trying out different antennas, be sure to scan through the channels on your TV to see which antenna location pulls in the most stations.
Now that we are all-digital broadcasts, and the subsequent spectrum auction that saw many stations shift locations, local channels are now on both UHF (channels 14-51) and VHF bands. So you want an antenna that does well with both bands, to make sure that you’ll get all the stations you can.
Anything that stands between an indoor TV antenna and the broadcast towers can degrade your reception. If possible, try placing the antenna in or near a window, provided you don’t live in an apartment building where your "view" consists of a neighboring building’s brick wall.
The second-best choice is an external wall that faces the broadcast towers. If you live in a house, try to avoid a location that might be obscured by large trees, a shed or garage, or other large obstructions. Try a few different windows and walls to find the best spot.
When testing indoor TV antennas in your home, you may find it handy to have an extra length of RG6 coaxial cable—and a female-to-female coax cable joiner so that you can freely move the antenna to different locations. You also may want to use some painter’s tape to temporarily attach the antennas to the various locations before determining the best spot.
Many of the models have an amplifier, which can boost signal strength to help pull in more distant stations. An amplifier can also be helpful if you intend to split the signal from one antenna to feed two TVs. Amplified antennas weren't always more effective than nonamplified models—they can also amplify noise and distortion, and overload reception from closer stations.
If you have an amplified antenna, try it with the amplifier turned off. If reception is good, leave it off. But if that doesn't work well, turn the amp on and rescan the channels to see whether reception improves.
One last tip: Rescan for channels periodically. Even though the spectrum auction—and the subsequent shifting of channels to new frequencies—is now complete, it still makes sense to rescan for channels every month or so, because you might get some new stations that you couldn’t pick up earlier.
