So, it's true then? Wrestling has gone back to it's PG roots? I actually like the sound of that. I could never have watched a wrestling event with my children just 10 years ago. It had basically devolved into a shockfest. Seriously... when Mae Young is giving birth to a hand... that's just pathetic. Hilarious, but pathetic.

WWE did things back then that could make your jaw drop to the floor and stay there.

To me, the whole Mark Henry/Birth of a Hand storyline was the lowest of low points for the WWE. At that point, I gave up on watching it. It had become so vulgar and so stupid, that I couldn't ask my I.Q. to suffer it a moment longer.

I don't even have cable tv anymore. Now my television show watching consists of Netflix, Xbox Video, and Hulu Plus (though I'm disgusted with Hulu Plus and it's commercials. There should be an option you can pay extra for to eliminate commercials).

I do miss having access to the regular networks, like NBC, CBS, and ABC... mainly because not having them makes it difficult to watch Presidential debates or the Thanksgiving Day Parade.

There used to be a music channel called The Tube, which played modern and classic music videos, but it no longer exists. It even introduced me to this song.



There's also another channel called This TV, which is another channel I used to have. Every morning they would show Mr. Ed, Inspector Gadget and Heathcliff.

These are just a couple of channels I miss having.

It may come to that, one day. But in this location, it'll have to be a BIG antenna. I've tried your standard Walmart "extra strength" antennas, and they pick up nada.

I've looked into it a little. I do mostly fine with rabbit ears, except when the train goes by and I'm watching NBC. So I'd like to get a nice roof mount and hopefully pull in stations from other states. This is the one to get, imo. If that won't help you, nothing will.

Hmmm. Is there a receiver required with this type of antenna? Or does it just connect directly? Coax or HDMI?
