Technical sites about broadcast tv/antennas/reception
antennapoint - see exatly what direction your TV signals are coming from. Helpful to position your antenna.
DTV.gov - has general information on digital TV and a good reception map to show what channels you can get.
dtvforum.com - forums on antennas, digital TV, converter boxes, and more. Kind of technical though.
Titan TV - free online TV channel guide, including broadcast TV guides for your area! (In the "Channel Lineup" area, click "ADD", then click "Broadcast" and enter your zip code).
tvfool.com - has great TV reception maps and signal locators, and a very good but highly technical forum. If you want an attic or roof antenna, check out their reviews.
Set top boxes
aereo.com - watch live TV online, with recording capabilities! Not available in all cities.
tv.com - find your favorite TV shows online here.
Kylo.tv - this is an open-source browser that runs on your computer, but is optimized for viewing on a TV screen. Fonts are bigger and there is on on-screen keyboard.
The best online store specializing in HDTV antennas and converter boxes that I have found is Solid Signal. I ordered my new antenna from there and it arrived quickly and without any problems. They have a great selection.
If you need cables (HDMI, coax, etc.) check out Deep Surplus. They have amazingly inexpensive cables, adapters, and a lot of other accessories for video, audio and your computer. Don't pay the insane prices that retail stores charge for HDMI cables!!! How about a six foot HDMI cable for less than $4!! Retail stores can charge as much as $50 for these!!!
