    Good morning,

    I have been thinking about cutting the cord for a while. There's so much information out there that sometimes it gets confusing. I want to completely discontinue my Direct TV subscription. I purchased an indoor HDTV antenna from Best Buy in an attempt to do this. But I kept losing the picture or just wasn't getting any reception at all. I already have Netflix and a Smart TV where I can access the apps for HBO ect. How do I go about getting the basic channels and some extra's like HBO? Can someone give me some suggestions? Do I need an outdoor antenna to achieve what I want to do. How do I go about finding someone who can install it?

    Thank you,

    First of all, congrats on taking the first step (research). In some cases - such as myself - an indoor antenna will not do the job depending upon distance & obstructions. I put one in our attic, but it is still not great (good - but not great). If you go to TV Fool and input your information, it will give you a report showing your reception options. Perhaps putting an antenna will be the solution for you.
