Does any one have any idea on cheaper pricing on TV . I am sick of having a big bill and still nothing to watch . Can Perryville pick up local channels with a antenna , and how do you go about getting a box or what ever you need ? Thanks for the help .

You can still buy converter boxes at Best Buy, possibly Walmart. You can always go online at Walmart and order it to have it shipped to the store at no charge. We have Dish, somewhat higher than Direct but more channels. To me, it's more of a personal choice. Good luck!

Converter boxes aren't needed if u have flatscreen TV.
RABBITT ears or any antenna still pulls in free local channels in HD

you'd be amazed of how many FREE local HD channels one cane pull in around Perry County just using the old tower antenna's.

We get around 26 channels like that.

Are you talking about the big tall towers out in your yard ? I was told you can use rabbit ears but I really can't believe it can be that easy . I have Direct TV now but channel 23 is being removed and the price is going up , go figure . I am just tired of it and I am thinking about switching to Dish .

GGG, in regards to channel 23 being removed, thats just typical negotiations between DirecTV and local channel 23.

That channel is part of the 80 are so channels controlled by Sinclair Broadcasting group which operates nationwide. Last Fall DishNet faced the same challenges, as did Verizon cable & Comcast cable in 2011.

It's all about a broadcasting group trying to hold the cable & satellite companies hostage for a higher pay for the right to broadcast their channels.

Thats why your rates go up wether its dish , direct, or charter.
