Roof top Antenna with 40 channels of free Digital TV

Until Sept of 2010 my home in Florida had no TV, but it came with a roof top antenna, so I picked up one of them new fangled flat screen TV's with the digital tuners. I found a 22 inch Emerson flat screen at Walmart for $198 and plugged it into my roof top antenna.

I was very happy to find 40 clear digital TV channels. I picked the Emerson because it had good side vision (much better than many of the others) and it was under $200 and 22 inches is small but not tiny.

The digital tuner in the TV responds better than the analog to digital converter boxes I tried a year or two earlier. The channels are as clear as cable. You can look at your favorite TV Guide to see what channels are available in your area.

Now almost 5 years later I'm still using that same setup at home, so I've saved about $5000 by still having no cable.

Funny though that I just bought a 32 inch flat screen TV from Walmart for under $200 that I use at my office with my laptops as a monitor.
