Since the government is putting up another 650,000,000 for digital tuners. I got to wondering. How many of us actually need one? Sure I have some old tv's that could use them in the garage or workshop.
 
But, I'm curious to know how many on this board are still using a standard def tv with an antenna.
 
If you are using an antenna (as opposed to cable or sat.) put it in the comments area.
 
And use your main tv's not all your tv's. Just the main 2 that you watch.

I don't need and don't want. I haven't had any TV (cable or broadcast) for years. It's nice not having that crap piped in and I get more stuff done now that I can break suction from the couch.

We bought a 32" after we moved into the apartment- I'm glad we didn't buy anything bigger, this one barely fits in my wall unit as it is. Stupid me didn't measure the available space before I bought a TV.

Dynex 32" 720p flat-panel.
Great picture, even though I'm using an antenna. The digital channels are pretty nice, but I mainly just use it for my 360.

I have a 27" and a 19" tube standard def tv. I don't pay for cable but can't get anything over antenna, living in a river valley kind of sucks for reception. It's OK though, I have Hulu.

After I graduate/get a better job my second major purchase will be the building of a custom media center running myth tv to allow me to stream netflix, hulu or anything I download to the tv. Eventually getting an HDTV in about two years. That is of course unless I get into a decent law school and can no longer afford such things.

Don't blame me, I voted for Kodos.

People who can afford internet are generally able to afford cable or satellite TV service.

You're not going to get an accurate picture of society with this.

I think this applies to more than just what tv/service people have.

Still talking about TV size right?

The TV at home is a 55" widescreen I think and the resolution is something weird, I don't remember what exactly but it's not one of the standard HD ones. My dad wanted to get a new LCD TV but we just don't have the money right now. The HD channels do look nice on the old set though, they're a bit clearer. I think it's probably a waste of time and money to be worrying about switching our TV signals as a nation with all of our other problems right now but whatever. As long as my TV experience is improved before the economy completely collapses, everything will be just dandy.

Parents just picked up a LG 47" 1080p for our living room (mom's birthday).

My tv is a 20" standard tv.

It's not about making watching tv better, it's about freeing up valuable frequencies for other uses.
