    How to watch F1 Racing Online or on a Roku?

    Freevision FV-HD30 Antenna

    Been seeing a bunch of advertising on different AV forums (especially AVS) about this antenna. Honestly, I don't really see any reason to pay more than $15 for an indoor antenna. Best results I ever got was from an unamplified set of rabbit ears.

    How often do you watch PBS

    We usually find ourselves watching PBS 1-2 hours tops every week. There's no set show that we have to see, it's more of a mood kind of thing. I take that back, we do watch more nature shows than anything. How about you?
