Need Help with Getting My Public TV Viewing for Free?

Is anyone viewing public TV for free these days?

We are primarily interested in channels: 32, 2, 5, 7, 9 and 11. We have one HD TV and one standard TV. We have currently suspended the Direct TV for the summer and, at least, I hope to break away from it, while leaving the wiring intact. We watch little TV. The monthly fees are outrages.

Is anyone viewing public TV for free these days?

We are primarily interested in channels: 32, 2, 5, 7, 9 and 11. We have one HD TV and one standard TV. We have currently suspended the Direct TV for the summer and, at least, I hope to break away from it, while leaving the wiring intact. We watch little TV. The monthly fees are outrages. I realize that some of us will miss the sports.

If you do watch public TV for free, what anthena(s) are you using? Can I have the anthena next to the TV or do I have to go to the roof? What are the typical pitfalls in the change process that I should watch out for? Is there a way to make this change simple for non-technical people or is there a business than can do this for me?

Thanks!
