Well, I am still enjoying my OTA tv experience this year. We cancelled Hulu and now are relying on OTA recordings for our NBC, ABC, Fox, and CW shows. While the HTPC only can record two shows at a time, it has been very enjoyable not having to watch all the repetitive commercials on Hulu.

I bought my mom a refurbished LEAF antenna to use in her bedroom tv down in Dothan. Hopefully that will work well for her.

My mom's Leaf Antenna worked remarkably well! She was ecstatic that she was able to pick up stations from Panama City with it.


Also, I have resubscribed to Hulu Plus, this time without commercials. I am still using the HTPC to record shows though.

Does anyone know if 4K and HDR transmission will likely happen for OTA or is it limited to bluray and possibly cable/satellite?

I doubt that we will see it for a while if it comes. Ask again in 5 - 10 years.

They would have to actually do 1080p first.

So I have an issue. I had to have the internet modem moved into the living room so I didn't have a 100' Cat5E cable traipsing through my entire house. Unfortunately, that means that they had to disconnect my antenna in my attic so they could use that coaxial port for the modem. I tried a leaf antenna and that only picked up ABC and PBS. I moved the antenna down into the living room to see if it would have any better luck than the leaf, but it is an eyesore, and t only picks up a few more stations, no CBS , CW, or NBC.

Anyone have any advice for me to try to keep using OTA so I don't have to rely on streaming?
