I know there are a bunch of ways to watch TV for free such as hooking your PC up to the tv and using any number of programs, using a slingbox, or using free to air equipment. Which option is the best? Who has the best free setup in this scene? Pictures would be cool too.

I use a DTV converter box. I have 2 brands. I have a Channel Master and an Apex 502. Both are S-Video boxes. Picture is crystal clear. I would say the CM has marginally better picture quality and marginally better reception. The Apex has a better remote.

I get about 40 channels. We are very pleased with the results.

I also built an outdoor antenna. Here are some pics.

I also watch Hulu. That is great if you have good bandwidth.

Nice. Im using a Nfusion box to pick up all the Dish network channels. I like it but there has to be something out there better.
