an antenna is what you need. it will get whatever free over the air channels are in your area. i got mine at walmart for $45 and it works great. my area has 33 free channels it receives :)

you do need to do some thinking. how far are you from the transmitting towers?? the antennas are rated for how far away it can get a signal. so a 15 mile one would be able to get a decent signal from 15 miles away. they make longer and shorter range. you have to decide what you need. i went with a 50 mile one even though i am only about 30 miles from the source. just to be safe ;) plus i suggest one that is amplified. meaning it plugs in and boosts the signal it receives. gives a more steady picture with less issues. especially if you are a long way from the source.

should be able to go to your local walmart, best buy type place and find a range of options. mine is a nice low profile one that mounts to the wall high up. this is the one i got. http://www.rcaantennas.net/indoor-hd-antenna/?sku=ANT650Z

Go to your local Wal Mart and look at the Over The Area Antennas OTA.

There should be one for around $40 that will give you credits toward Sling and other services, so you will get the 8-25 OTA channels depending on your location and a month free of Sling and the other services.

I dropped Direct TV over two years ago for a combination of Amazon Prime, Netflix, Sling, Kodi and what I can get on a OTA antenna. On a per month basis that would be around $42 and give you a massive amount of content. There is so much online content available you will never miss having Cable, I have 4 kids and non of them have complained yet.
