I have a large outdoor antenna on a rotor, but I also have Dish Network with my "moved" locals, plus I have Spectrum TV Choice streaming.

I've got a Square Shooter in the attic. It's split to a number of my TV's in the house and a Tablo. I use the Tablo for remote access to my locals and for those times where rain fade hits.

Cool. But my question was who here has an antenna but IS NOT a cord cutter, as in has a paid TV provider despite also having an antenna.

I have three antennas, one is a CM4228 (original) plus my Dish 1000.2 EA Hybrid satellite setup.

We're TV poor as I like to say at my house too.. We have:

DirecTV- XTRA Package with DNS service (until June it appears)
Charter Spectrum Basic package for TiVo w/ Cable Card. (I'm a C-SPAN junkie and they carry all three in HD, plus I keep getting discounts for having multiple services with them)
OTA antenna feeding into two HDHomeRun devices which are viewable using the Channels DVR app running on a Synology network drive.

We're currently testing YouTube TV too and I expect it to replace DirecTV in the near future when they end DNS service. That is about the only reason I've stayed with them.

Cable TV and OTA antenna. My antenna reception is not reliable as the trees in my neighborhood have grown a lot in the last few years and I could use two more sections to my TV tower. (which still would only give me fair to good but not reliable reception) My antenna gives me channels not available to me on my cable tv.

I have always had a OTA antenna at this house that I have been in for 29 years. Even with Satellite (Dishnetwork and DirecTV) and currently Comcast. I currently have a Televes DigaNova roof mounted on what was the pole for my Slimline dish.

The antenna was always my backup for rainfade or snowfade. (once birdfade)

Many times during severe weather the satellite signal would go out and I was glad to have my OTA backup.

I used it most recently when Comcast went out one evening about 9:00 pm for about four hours.

I have had a CM 4228 in my attic for many years. This was mainly for when storms knock out my Dish or Directv signal I can switch to the OTA channels.
