Considering cancelling cable TV

I'm in Middleton in a ground floor apartment and I get mostly excellent reception with this indoor amplified antenna. The only time I get disruptions are when I'm tuned to Channel 3 and standing to the east side of the TV.

I got this antenna.

My HD reception sans satellite is actually better as it is supposed to be, and I live on the near east side. Reception is dependent on the right antenna. Plus, any interference should be pixilation or the channel cutting out. Other than that it should be crystal clear.

Hmmm, maybe my antenna stinks. I'm using this one:

Even if I moved, I would still need ESPN for Monday Night Football. Does anyone know how to legally get NFL games online? I would be willing to pay extra.


The only reason I pay for cable is the Big Ten Network. Any way to stream Badger BBall games?

I don't know how well it works, but it looks bad ass.
