Question about Televison & Video
Hey... so new to over air HD TV, as we no longer choose to pay high cable bill. Just purchased a RCA Basic Indoor Antenna via Amazon for $8.14 and was unable to pick up any channels... curious if there is something else I will need, and/or suggestions. Thanks!

Hi masaki h,
I am happy to help.
It is almost impossible to tell how well an antenna will work . It depends on atmospheric conditions, distance to the broadcast tower and a number of other factors.
The new flat antennas look nice and should work fine but your best course of action is to buy from a store with a liberal return policy. Places like Walmart will take the antenna back for any reason as long as you have an reciept.
Somtimes a cheap set of rabbit ears work as well as a expensive amplfied antenna.
I say give it a try and if not acceptable return it and try another one. I have provided a link to a site that will explain more about DTV and antennas. http://www.antennaweb.org/aw/welcome.aspx
Please rate this solution and please keep in mind that any rating except FixYa is a negative to my rank here
