Pretty much, yeah. Plug in an antenna, same as you would with an analog TV. I get good enough reception that I canceled my cable service completely. Now whether you'll be able to pick up anything as far as digital/hd stations is completely dependent on what kind of antenna, where you point it and where the transmitters are.

Absolutely. That's all I use the antenna for. I have SD Dish network for everything else. I'm planning to upgrade to HD Dish soon, but I'll probably keep the antenna hooked up anyway, because the picture quality on my locals will still be better OTA because they won't undergo compression like HD signals over satellite or cable do.
