I too ditched cable TV a few years ago and went OTA. You have to get the antenna as high up as possible – with a decent height, no obstructions and a good gain (Yagi) antenna, you can get reception of up to 70 miles, maybe a bit more.
The quality is excellent, much better than cable (there’s no additional compression).
Many broadcasters also have subchannels in addition to their main channel (and the cable companies don’t tend to carry them, at least in Canada).
