    I have a television, but we do not have any television service. Will "rabbit ears" work for regular television channels like CBS.?
    Is it possible to watch The Masters on The Internet.....what web-site do you guys use to do that.?
    Thank You

    Didn't TV transmissions switch to digital broadcasting? I don't think an old set of rabbit ears will work anymore but you can buy a digital antenna that will pick up all your local stations.

    Yes. OP will need a digital antenna to receive OTA broadcasts.

    if you have a digital TV, or DVD player with a digital tuner, you shouldn't need a converter box. those boxes are for non-digital TVs made pre-2005 or so.

    Digital antennas don't cost much. I helped a guy set up a new flat screen in his second home. He didn't want to pay for cable or anything so we got a digital antenna. I was shocked at how good the image was on that little flat screen.

    I would guess the networks still do "broadcasts" in your area. Might be worth checking out first.

    I'm old enough to remember when TV was free, so naturally I find all cable bills a royal pain in the keister.

    I use rabbit ears to receive a digital signal, through which I get three main broadcast stations, PBS and dozens of Spanish language stations. For $7 a month, I stream Netflix through a Roku device.

    No cable bill, no paying for commercials.
