Wondering what’s worth tuning into this season that doesn’t require paying for a new streaming service? With over-the-air (OTA) television, you can get entertainment, see live events like award shows and football games, gain access to local news and more. All you need to do is purchase and install a TV antenna.
With subscription-based streaming services, you pay monthly for access to content, but with OTA TV, you only need to make a one-time antenna purchase to access everything you need. Then if you want to record shows to watch them later, pick up a DVR.
Once you get your antenna installed, you’ll be wowed with how much content is available on your TV—for free! Here are 9 shows you can tune into this winter.
