I use an outside antenna (actually it is in my attic) to watch broadcast TV. I am fifty to sixty miles from the various broadcast facilities in Nashville, and only have trouble with the station farthest away - which happens to be a CBS affiliate. Get all the other network stations fine, as well as a shopping channel and a bunch of religious channels. Added small inline amplifiers for each set, which helped with that CBS station. Most of the broadcasters now offer multiple "channels" in this brave new digital world so you may he giving up less than you think. The terrain is gently rolling between here and Nashville. If you are in a valley with mountains between you and your stations you may have difficulties and/or need a mast and a true outside antenna.
