You may think of TV antennas as those old rabbit ears people would sometimes cover in tin foil to try to get better reception. Well those days are long gone.

" zach wobensmith ditched cable nearly 8 years ago. he bought a tv antenna, and never looked back. (sot: zach wobensmith, cord cutter) "if it's raining badly out. sometimes i lose the signal. most of the time it comes in fine and the picture is extremely clear." (v/o) that includes local news or his favorite late night talk shows -- which he's still able to access for free on over-the-air channels. (sot: zach wobensmith) "pretty much everything was there and i don't have to pay extra for it." (v/o) consumer reports recently tested 10 indoor antennas -- trying them in two locations...near a window and near the tv. across the board, the window location worked best. they also found that while antennas come in a variety of shapes, the design isn't as important as where you live and what you're surrounded by. chyron: jim willcox, consumer reports tech editor (sot) "if you live in a very mountainous area or live in a city and there are a lot of buildings that obstruct the signal, than you may have a tougher time than somebody who is in a plain or in a neighborhood where there aren't a lot of tall buildings." (vo) for best results, jim wilcox of consumer reports says place the antenna high -- or in upstairs room or attic if possible. try a few different locations and rescan to see where you get the most channels. and if at first you don't succeed in getting great reception, try some other models. (sot: jim willcox) "work with a retailer that has a return policy because not every antenna is going to do well in your house." (vo) and just because the picture is free, doesn't mean it's poor quality. the over the air image may even be clearer since it's it can be less compressed than what you get on cable. (sot: jim willcox) "so free plus better performance is a pretty good deal for most consumers." ." it may also help to know where the nearest tv transmitter is, especially if you have a directional model. the fcc has an interactive map on their website.
