In this episode of Tech Talk With Doug, we answer the question “How do you get free HDTV with an antenna?”

You can get several free HDTV channels by installing an antenna in your home. The best placement for your new antenna is on your roof or in the attic. With the antenna installed, run the line to the main distribution line that feeds to all of the televisions in your home. Once the antenna is installed and the lines are connected, you should be able to view HDTV!

There are a couple of things to figure out before installing your cable:

Where will you get the best reception – inside or outside your home?
What channels are available for free in your area? You can search websites like TV Fool or AntennaWeb to get started.
What type of antenna should you purchase? They aren’t all the same, so make sure to do your research!
Be careful as you head up on the roof or into the attic. This isn’t a project everyone can handle – if you’re unsure it may be something you want to get outside help for.
