I am buying my first house soon, so money it tight and I am thinking about ways to save myself some money. One of the biggest money savers would be to get rid of my expensive cable TV bill. I realize that I only watch a handful of channels (mainly Discovery) and I know how to watch basically any TV show through the web.
My plan at the moment is to build myself a cheap media center PC and hook it up to my TV. For those live sports moments I am thinking about hooking some sort of bunny ear antenna to get the signal on my HD TV. From my experience the HD signal coming from "over the air" is one of the clearest HD signals.
I am am here asking for suggestions from people who have done this transition. What hardware do you use to get around it? How has your experience been? How do you watch live events?
