When it comes to HD antennas! Truth! Can be much stranger than anything. With HD antennas.
It all comes right down to this! Economics? Or where you live? First! Where you live. I live in an area where. It depends on the elevation and atmospheric conditions. Even when we had analog. There too! the same as well. When HD was promoted as much easier way to watch TV. As compared to analog. Even with HD! You can still end up watching HD TV as you were watching it via analog.
When you get right down to it! There is neither no difference or preference at all. Both susceptible from conditions outside.
And with this hype of: “If you but this antenna”You can get all these other channels as well!” “BULLSHIT!”
Where I live! Depending on where I am and the conditions outside. I can get TV signals anywhere from. Canada, Akron, canton, Ohio, Erie, PA., Detroit, Mich. Again! Depending on extenuating circumstances outside.
This is nothing new! There are people who are called “DX’er’s” these are people who love to find stations either on TV, radio. This is a hobby.There is no age, preference as to who wants to find out for themselves how many stations they can get on any given day/night.
BRING BACK THE ROOFTOP ROTARY ANTENNA!
You can get more stations with it when there was a blackout of football games!
OR THE MICROWAVE ROOFTOP ANTENNA!
At least, you could get a premium movie channel with it!
As to economics? And with cable and satellite companies raising their rates. This does come into play.
With the internet, streaming video services. mobile devices. Some for either free or little charge. Compared to them? You decide. It’s your money.
