Here’s the deal: Buying an antenna for between $10 and $40 will give you a lifetime of free access to your favorite local channels in high-definition, with superior picture quality.

Plug in your address at AntennaWeb.org to see which type of antenna is best for your needs. The website will also list the channels available in your area, such as the local ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, PBS and independent stations.

If those networks don’t provide enough entertainment for you, consider adding a streaming service like Netflix, Hulu or Sling.
