I have Dish Network and want to cut the cord!
I have seen antennas on top of houses in the neighborhood. Can someone guide me on the best HDTV antennas to get? How is the picture quality?

The only signal I can pick up reliably is a Spanish language channel.

I have tried out a couple of antennas I picked up from RadioShack but none worked.

FCC has a link Web Link that will calculate Digital TV antenna reception for your area.
There isn't a whole lot of channel reception in the tri-valley area unless you are into Spanish speaking programming, i.e. John and Calixico's posts.

I cannot believe Pleasanton resident cannot enjoy the free over-the-air digital TV. I thought it is a right to receive TV signal.
