A New Plan: Safety Included

August 25th, 2013 at 06:08 pm

If you read my post this morning, you know we had abandoned the plan to put an antenna in our attic, primarily for safety reasons. The biggest issue was climbing IN and ACROSS our attic which has no floor boards to walk on to fish a cable across and down to our basement. We just didn't feel safe.

The new plan still starts in the attic, but goes outside and along the edge of our siding to the connection that is already available outside. This does not require us to get IN the attic. We can attach the antenna by simply standing on a ladder BY the attic opening. Safely!!

We are excited. We have put in some cash to make this happen, however, we will quickly recoup the money by cancelling our basic service from the cable company. And this is the same amount we would have spent by going IN the attic.

It's not hooked up yet, but we have the beginning plans for tv service that will cost us $0 per month. How do you receive your television service? How much do you pay?

    great safe DIY solution! i don't have a t.v., so no need to pay for service. since i live alone, i watch shows on my laptop on hulu or other free viewing sites. good luck with the new set up!

    I don't have television service. I just watch a few shows that are available online.

    We just have an antenna and watch for free--with Netflix for $8 as our add-on.

    Here we have free to air TV channels about 15 channels with Digital and 5 if you don't have digital service but the whole of Australia will be digital by the end in this year or early next year.

    In our area we are all digital no analogue at all.

    Other than buying the TV digital and new digital antenna there are no more to paid unless you want paid FOXTEL TV channels but at $60 per month for basic and I donít have the phone line for it anyway. They are run by the phone company.

    I watch very little TV as it is.

    I don't even have a tv. Smile I do pay for Netflix and Hulu+ (during the regular tv season only).
